The slide lock is a metal tube with flat ends on both sides, almost looks like a jack.

How difficult is it to adjust a slide from side to side? I had a look at one and with the slide extended, the rubber wiper seal wasn't touching the slide at the very top - had about a 1/4in gap... I remember another 28bhs owner on here describing the same issue. Is this a difficult/expensive fix?

The slide lock on the 28BHS looks like the small one in the image. Without the lock in place the top of the slide can move out and back during travel. You can push it out with your hands an inch or so at the top without the lock in place which shows how easy it can move out as the entire slide motor and mechanism is at the bottom, under the couch. There is nothing at the top to hold it in place. The slide lock should have come with your trailer.

Its been a few years since I adjusted mine but IIRC I just slacked up the bracket bolts, placed a floor jack under the low side of the brace, raised the jack until the slide was level then re-tightened the bolts.
(all this was done inside the trailer, under the sofa.) The process would likely be more involved with a large slide...
