slide needs adjustments

I'm a new owner of 2015 Greyhawk mv. The large slide doesn't close properly at the top. It's off by about 3/4". Where can I make adjustments myself on this. I am level. Thanks

On my 2012, our mechanism is mounted under the slide. Adjustments are made by shimming. Not sure if yours are the same or mounted to the sidewall of the slide. If this is an emergency, and you need to travel now, you could suck that in with your slide locks.

It seems to be Power Gear slide system. Would Someone know where the motor is? Thanks in advance.

Did it close proper before. Try running in in and out a few times. May I suggest you make sure of the type and make/model. Jayco uses more than one, and each one adjusted diff. Do it wrong, and a can of worms will appear.

Has it worked proper prior to this. Run it in and out a few times and see if it will correct. Jayco uses diff systems, and the wrong adj will get you a can of worms.

Hawk, have you checked outside underneath the slide for the motor?

Should be in the basement compartment. With it still being under warranty I woud not mess with it. As was asked did it close properly when you picked it up?

I guess I don't understand the problem now. Does the entire slide need to come in 3/4" or just the top? If it's out of level, and just the top is out, then it may be a shimming issue. That was the problem with our powergear slide as well. Either way, it's a job for the dealer.

Slide adjustment

Our new Eagle HT's left slide out is uneven when it's extended. The upper left corner is 3-4" away from the interior wall, otherwise it's tight to the rest of the interior walls. Is this an easy fix? By myself or a service dept?
