Slide Out Won't Align

I purchased a 2022 Sabre Cobalt FLL 5th Wheel two years ago. The kitchen's slide when retracted does not close all the way.. See attached picture
How do I fix? Thank you!

What slide system does it have?
Rack and pinion, Schwintek, etc?

Slide Out is a Lippert Schwintek

Are you sure it's Schwintek? The bottom sticking out as the picture seems to show is classic rack and pinion also made by Lippert. Does the other end also stick out at the bottom?

That's not your slide that's the issue, it's the warped panel with the light on it. I can see it right below the vent and the panel is concave.

It's not retracting on the other side too. I'll get a picture of the other side.

A Schwintek slide system will have an upper and lower track, on each side of the slideout. There is a motor on each side.
If the slide is truly out of alignment, due to the motors, you have to find the slideout controller. There is no standard location for it.
