I have a similar issue on my Jayflight at the top but upon further inspection I found that the slide IS contacting the seal, and it just appears that the aluminum trim is bent out a bit. I did find that all the bolts on my slide adjustment were loose. I'm thinking the dealer tried to adjust for the slight gap and that was the best they could do. I made a few adjustments and tightened everything down. "LEFT WELL ENOUGH ALONE"

Yours has too much of a gap. I would personally adjust it myself, BUT you have to watch because you can create a gap at the top if you pull the bottom in too far.

One of ours looks just like yours, tighter at the top than the bottom. Dealer looked at it in early May and said no harm in using it through the rest of the season. As long as it's tighter at the top than the bottom, no issues. The inner seals are still working and will keep any water from getting in.

Thank you all! As I said, I prefer not to touch this and will probably wait for other items to pop up and have the dealer to fix them.

Thank you!

We also have been having slide issues. We have had it back to the dealer 5 times to no avail. Buffalo rv one. Had certified technician certificate on the wall. It is a 16 hour class.

Holy cow... maybe a few of us should take that class.

Just a couple stupid questions; have you checked to make sure there is nothing in the way keeping the slide from closing? Also, do you have a fully charged and functional battery? 😀

Yeah, nothing is blocking the slide from closing. The battery was not fully charged when I was closing this, but it is now and I tried to close it again a couple of times.
