Over-travel of Bedroom Slide

Over-travel of Bedroom Slide
We have purchased a 2013 31.5 RLTS from Jayco it is now stored for the winter. While using it for the several months we realized that the Bedroom slide was extending out to far at the bottom. The wood frame at the top looks good but when you look at it from the sides you can see it is twisting and separating. When I inspected the frame work on the inside it looks like it is pulling the wood framework away from the bedroom slide. From the outside the bottom extends out further than the top.
Has anyone else ever seen this with slides???

Not sure what is happening with yours on the inside, but on mine (which has 3 slides) the bottom extends out further on the outside. It looks a lot like your first picture. Never noticed any thing abnormal inside, but next spring when I get down to the cg it is stored at, I will certainly take a closer look.

You might talk to the dealer and find out whether this is normal. Looks to me like the bottom is extending too far, kind of like a garage door opener that has a setting for travel, more or less. I'll bet the dealer will take one look and get it fixed right for you. I know our slides on our 2012 26.5 HT RLS seems to be pretty even top to bottom when fully extended.

These slides can become out of adjustment and need readjusting or perhaps were never set right at the factory to begin with. Mine did, it was not closing up all the way on the top back corner. I adjusted the slide myself by loosening some brackets and jacking up the slide to the proper position then retightening the bolts. But mine is a small shallow sofa slide. Your dealer will readjust yours, as necessary.

We also have 3 slides, and all extend about the same top and bottom. Not absolutely sure, but I think yours needs adjusting.

perhaps it is just my eyes, but in your first picture it appears the bottom is out a little further than the top in the slide behind the front slide(the slide with the issue). Not to the extent of the front slide, but still not square. On second look, mine appear more like the second slide.

Thanks for the advice. I will contact my Dealer which is close to the Factory. I will get them to book me right into Jayco’s maintenance shop. You are right the bottom is pushed out 2 to 3 inches further than the top. I did talk to the service center when we picked up the trailer and told them that we could see light thru the bottom of the slide. They told me that it just looked like the seal gasket was cut a little short. Know that I have had time with the trailer I think it is because it is pushing out past the seal. MTF
I will let you know what the dealer has to say.
