Slide out bolts

I have a 2013 Salem 27rkss and am wondering what if any purpose the two large bolts that extend downward from the bottom outside of the slide-out are for????

Those are for adjusting the angle of the slide so it comes against the TT wall evenly. This adjustment is best left to the experts is what I was told.

I think you're referring to the bolts used to adjust the slideroom vertically as per page 9 and 10 of the Lippert manual...

Looks like the Factory over tightened the bolt on my Hemisphere slide. This is the bolt "B" with Jam Nut shown in Figure 7 on page 10 of the Lippert manual linked above.

Is this something I should try to straighten out, or is it OK as it is?

Here is a picture of the rear bolt:
