2020 salem cruiselite 263 bhxl

Just purchased 3 weeks ago.Slideout was working fine,now it will only go out about a foot and stops. It will retract back in but it looks like it is not as flush on one end outside. Trailer is level. Any ideas ? I wish we would have waited on buying since we cant camp at this time. Gonna take it back to dealership and get repaired

When you say the trailer is level do you have the stabilizers extended. If not that can cause twisting in the frame when operating the slide which can bind thing up.

Since it's under warranty, taking it back to the dealer is your best move. On the bright side, you're not going to lose any camping time while it's in the shop.

Slides don't always fit flush to rigs sides. What is important is that the slide seal is compressed about 50% to make it seal. One side may be different then the other with regard to how it alines with the side of the rig. The dealer should be able to explain or correct your concerns.

stabilizers are extended. luckily the dealership is only 6 miles from my house and they only have a 2 week backup.

Dealer said all warhouses are closed will take along time to get parts if needed. Wish we would have kept our old camper this upgrade has turned out bad.

Hopefully they won't need parts. Might just be an adjustment (fingers crossed for luck)
Everything seems to be harder than normal right now, but hang in there. You'll eventually be pleased with your upgrade.
