So if that is the case Jayco is either drilling thru the floor and missing the bolt hole and than bending the bracket to fit. Or than the slide weight is pushing down and twisting the bracket to make it look like it was misaligned. The body shop called me and Jayco is over night sending all my cap decals. Should pick it up Saturday and I will look closely at the brackets for the following. Are they under the rollers, lay underneath while slide comes out and see if they have any flex. I will also see if I can get a square up by the bracket to see if the floor above the bracket is flexing.

They drill UP from the outrigger through the belt rail / floor joist and then bolt. There is no missing or having to bend outrigger to align.

On our Pinnacle there is a roller right above where the bracket is. The bracket could certainly be made out of a more substantial steel- they are pretty thin. I can barely get my hand in between the slide floor and the frame and it doesn't feel like it's bent in there but I think I will try Rock's idea of using a square to see if it is bent or not. Klassic- how did you bend yours back into place?

My outriggers are bent also. when i had it in for service last month my dealer told me about a recall/bulletin on the outriggers. Ordered them in so I can get them fixed. My streetside slide will not move after last weekends trip. Hope this is not related. All motors are running but only one side is moving.

I put a jack under and lifted the floor for any floor sag (which I really couldn't see from eyeballing from end to end)
Then hammered it back straight.
The top of the bracket was deformed, because of the bend, and it straightened out too.
Then I spray painted it. The paint came off along the bend because of the stress.

Any word if they are built stronger?

Yes, the new outriggers are heavier. Bought mine in January. It seems that the problem was noticed and fixed in manufacturing late Febuary or early March. Sending mine to shop on Monday for repair.

Sorry guys...I've been reading, but I can't check mine until I get it back from the dealership. I will look then.

Well now we know. I will have to wait till Aug when I come back to get this done. I wonder if they replace if not bent but built before they found out.. I also wonder if it is a stiffener they just bolt in place or weld to the original. To replace they would have remove the slide to access the floor to get to the bolt. When I pick mine up hopefully this weekend I will ask them to call Jayco and get the facts.

What I meant to say was maybe they drilled in an angle and when bolted tight bent the bracket. If they just figured this out they probably are gonna have a bunch to fix since our models have been made for a few years. Have anyone one of you guys put slides out without leveling or had them out and leveled or out and unleveled? Just wondering if frame flex while leveling or putting slide out not leveled is doing this. Mine were fine last time I looked and I have never moved a slide without leveling but I know the dealer does move them when doing repairs and do not level.
