By chance do you have basement compartments hanging from the slide? If so, check all of the hanger bolts. They have a habit of breaking.

Check with HWH for the correct alignment procedure. I find their site a bit hard to navigate. The Winne hotline might be of some assistance.

One thing to note, for those with HWH slides, is the pads wear out and the slide ram bucket fails. This happened to me on my '05 Vectra. The slide would not go in. The bucket was bent and the ram was not aligned correctly. Also, keep an eye on the basement hanger bolts. They tend to break. Happened to me on that rig.

I too have search up and down for answers to my very similar problem on a 2005 Adventure 35u, living room slide, corner closes to driver on driver side. The slide is sitting about a half inch low. I am looking for additional photos of this procedure, additional info, etc. The model I have has the storemore slide.

Who is the AZPEAT mentioned, does anyone know of the photos sent to the OP of this post and if they exist on here?

Thanks for any assistance.

I don't know if this works but it is worth a try:

I know the pads ware out. I have had them replaced but have never done it myself.
Give close attention to all of the slide track hanger bolts and basement hanger bolts. They have a history of breaking.

Sagging Slide Problem

Hello all -

We had the same situation with a 2004 Vectra (previous coach). I'm attaching a link to a Youtube video the shows what we did to fix the problem.



The basic problem (for us, anyway) was that the plastic triangle slide pieces and worn down so much that they didn't give enough elevation, with one end being worse than the other - and all of the symptoms that everyone describes here.

I ordered the "triangles" from HWH who shipped them right out. It's a tedious job and a little dirty (though not as dirty as shock absorbers!) but possible to do. The hardest part is fidgeting with the little triangles to work them in through the small space that is created....but I am here to tell you that it can be done and fixed our problem. If I can do it, then persons of limited ability can!!! The part that I had to figure out was the jack to support the slide - that is essential for the procedure to work as the openings aren't big enough if the ram is bearing the weight of the room.

Just my .02 and good luck should this be the problem. You can look at the little slide triangles without removing anything and pretty much tell if they are worn and have grooves in them. For all that I know, others may have different problems producing the same symptoms. At least this one you can see before tearing things apart so that you know it needs to be done before disassembling just to find that they are ok.

I think I have to remove the entire slide out beyond the lip ledge to repair.
I have never been able to fix the lower elevation when extended. Has anyone ever seen this problem and found a corrector?
