Slide Height

I have a 2013 36 CKTS with hydraulic slides. Seems the back of the passenger side slide is low, it's rubbing on the floor and wearing/tearing the fabric underneath. I've got the manual, and it seems to be a simple adjustment with the height bolts, but says only qualified service techs, which implies maybe I'm missing something. Any tips/tricks/advice on adjusting?

I just finished adjusting my slide with great results. the key is to go slow (small changes) operate the slide several times after each adjustment. I did the adjustments with the slide both fully open and at halfway. When it was open I used a plank to go between the operating attachments and a floor jack to take the weight off the rails while adjusting. My adjustments were only about 3/8 at a time. good luck

First, check that the slide room floor hasn't separated from the sidewall, when the slide room is "in".

Is this a common thing? I didn't notice that last time I was looking, but will check. Sounds expensive.

It happened to me on the kitchen slide out, near the refrigerator. The slide out floor was rubbing the main floor while retracted and traveling.

The slide out floor and wall looked normal when extended, but the floor wall separation was visible when retracted.

That's crazy, I would have never thought to check that. Of course, for me, it's the end of the slide that's at the rear of the trailer, making it the slightly harder one to inspect.
