Slide issue

I am sure this is a subject that has been beat to death already and I too have already used search feature but have about lost my sh!t trying to find what I am looking for, so, as short as I can make it;

The kitchen slide seems a bit off. The top "slides" out further than the bottom. It shuts good and tight but open, looks off. Didn't think anything of it until this weekend doing some cleaning and pre-packing for next trip. I happened to look at the bottom of the slide from inside and noticed from floor on up about 18-24 inches, the slide does not make contact with inside bubble seal. It transitions upward and makes full contact. The opposing slide seems fine and seals tight when open. I also notice that while opening the kitchen slide, it "wobbles" until about halfway out. I just had not put 2 and 2 together until this past weekend. One trip as my wife was opening the slide, it just stopped. Wouldn't go in or out. Let it sit a few then tried to close it. Closed fine but then went to open and it made a loud bang/pop and looked as if it jumped but continued to open. That was many weeks ago. Just now noticing how it sits.

Any way to adjust this yourself? It's the rack and pinion type slide mechanism.

I haven't had any leaks with it....yet......Have not had a chance to take it to dealer yet since I just discovered it.
