Slideout adjustment

I had a problem with one of my slides being too tight at the top and during transit it wore the seal from rubbing on it to the point where it has pretty much fallen apart.

The only adjustment I can see is for height on the end of the rams. It looks like it had been raised at the outer end at some point judging by the paint line. I adjusted these bolts so that the slide was pretty much the same distance out top and bottom when extended. This evens up the load on the bulb seal but now means that when the slide is retracted the floor of the slide is in the air by about an inch or so and not sitting on the trailer floor.

Is this the correct position when retracted? Any other slide adjustments that can be made? It's almost as if the whole slide needs to drop and inch but there's nothing that allows that.

Mine too. If the slide is retracted the floor of the slide is about 1" higher (IOW) there is a gap, between the bottom of the slide floor and top of the main floor. I think this is normal.

OK thanks. The dining side slide used to have the carpet against the floor when retracted but not since I adjusted it. Was concerned about the weight of the recliners on the slideout floor when it's retracted as there is no support if the floor is in the air.

The adjustments made should be returned to original.
In most cases it's not the horizontal alignment that needs to be adjusted but the synchronizing between the slide rails (measuring along the sides).
The slide should first come in at the top and extend first along the bottom.
