29y Slide

Went on camping trip this weekend. Everything worked great. Got home, unhooked camper, went to pit slide out and the corner by stove was stuck to floor. Started to rip floor. Had to push on top above microwave to lift slide up enough to put slide out.

What would all the sudden cause my side to be lower on one side?

What Year Jay Feather?
Did you have the locking bars installed on the top?
Some times the rubber seals are to dry and tilt the slide out a bit. Use some baby powder on the rubber seals (is better than silicone and preserves rubber).

Aljo She's a 2005. The seals look like new. It wasn't stuck at seals it appears the slide tilted to the back. It was moving but taking the floor with it.

As far as the looking bars. I have them but have never used them.

I would be looking at the slide mechanism bolts on the arms when the slide is out .. if the locking nut isn't tight they could potentially move causing the back to drop and drag

Your unit is the same as mine. I use baby powder on the rubber sears and have no problems since I started using it. You still can take a look at the slide out gear assembly if still everything is OK. I have a manual with details. Jayco could have made the space an extra inch, but it is what it is. I made the front closet also full height as it was useless those low closets. Done lots of mods to make it a four season unit.

I've also noticed when the slide is all the way out I can push on the top of slide and it moves back and forth. Never noticed that before...then again never tried moving it.

There's always a bit play in the slide out assembly. The locking bars hold the slide-out tighter in place to re-leave the strain on the bearings from the slide-out assembly.
Roads can be rough at times and start rocking the slide-out.
Check all the fasteners of the slide-out may be some broke loose.

Okay guys I figured it out my stabilizer Jacks in the back were too tight causing it to bow. Took some tension off the rear stabilizers and the slide moved about 1 inch up I think all is good now thanks

good deal ... I never put more pressure on my stabilizers than just past touching the ground and a couple of seconds afterwards to seat them ... don't try to use them for keeping bounce out or leveling
