Slide outs

Probably been asked a thousand times but camper is level. Slides are downhill and sleeping is weird that way. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

Sounds like there needs to be an adjustment made to the slide. I haven't heard of them not being level. I'm also assuming its been like this since new. Can you provide the model number of the RV?

First I'd check for any rollers under the slide and make sure they are there and in good shape. Then we'd need to know what slide mechanism you have, perhaps schwintek. A reset on the controller or sometimes a sequence will reset the distance (ie move out and hold button for 5 sec, move in and hold for 5 sec.. repeat 3x, just depends on slide motor).

Is there any gap at the bottom or top between the wall and the slide inside the unit? Sounds like there should be. Are you leaning down or up? Assuming down, I've been in that spot before due to leveling and its a little weird.

On ours, it can tilt up and down while moving out but in the out position it is pushing the slide against the frame and everything straightens out. This means the frame is doing the holding and not relying on the rollers.

It sounds like you are not getting all the way out.

question, are you saying the side is not level front to rear?
Or the slide is not level from inside edge to outside edge?

.If the RV is level and the slide is out hard against the frame then the contents of the slide-out are the problem. If its a bed, for example, you need to check how its constructed and re-work it to get it level.

I put a foam wedge under my mattress to raise our heads.

If the slide doesn't have any gaps on any side (top/bottom/either side) then its time to get out the level to see where the issue is. I'd triple check the gaps inside the RV around the slide as that is the most common issue - slide being out of whack.

If there are no gaps, the slide should be level. You can test with a level under the slide (outside under the slide) to see how level the slide floor is. If that's level then I'd guess you test the bed frame, under the mattress. One of those would have to be out of level, I would assume, unless its something crazy like the mattress.

I used to have a Forester Class C with a full wall slide. If you leveled the rig before extending the slide out, the slide out was heavy enough to tilt the rig slightly downhill on that side. I learned that when I parked and leveled the rig, to give it a couple of degrees up on the slide side so that when I extended the slide-out, the weight of the slide out would level things out.
