Slide is a little cocked, side to side

Does anyone know how to fix this? It looks like one side moves first. All the way in and all the way out seems to work ok, I mean it doesn't leak or anything, but if something is wrong, I would like to fix it.

It looks like it might be one cog off or something like that.

Is there a good, detailed tutorial on how these things work? I assume it is an electric slide.

Salems have electric slideouts. Need pics to help determine make of slideout. Don't you have documentation? Both my trailers came with slideout mechanism paperwork.
Are there an upper and lower track on each side of the slideout? If so, it's a Schwintek system and there are tons of troubleshooting videos on the Internet.

Our 2015 Salem has the LCI Thru-Frame slide out unit. It has two tracks (racks) under the bottom of the slideout. If both sides of the slide goes in and out equally, and it's just cocked to one side, it certainly could have jumped a tooth.

As Dan said, some pictures would certainly help.

Here's a link to the service manual for that slide. LCI Thru-Frame Slide Manual
