Slide out problem

The other day I slid my slide out after the winter and it didn't want to move so I had to manually move it then it started to work. Now I have noticed that there is a gap at the top on one side of my slide where it looks like it ain't slid out fur enough. Do I adjust it on the bottom. HElp please thanks

If it is a schwintek slide the first thing to try is:

Retract the slide, until you hear the motors stop turning. Keep holding the switch to retract for about 3 seconds, then release.

Extend the slide, but only a couple of inches. Do not go all the way out.

Repeat the above steps 3 or 4 times. See if that corrects your issue. Again, for schwintek slides, I don't know if it works for other types.

To get the best answer to your question you need to post your make/model of rig and type of slide room operation you rig is fitted with without this information every answer is a guess.

I'm looking at the post and the signature and don't see any rig information. I don't normally lookup the profile if they don't include the info in the post. Maybe I should
