Adventurer full wall slide not closing completely

My 2013 Winnebago 32H Adventurer full wall slide out is leaving a 1-2 inch gap in the lower right side corner (the driver's side) when it is closed. The top of the slide is completely sealed.
I have tried some of the extending and closing tips I found online but it will not seal completely when it closes. As you move to the front of the coach the gap gets smaller and it is fully sealed at the front of the coach on both the top and bottom areas. The smaller bedroom slide on the passenger side closes completely. Any do it yourself fixes for this or is this a job for the professionals?

Thanks for posting that Grant. The full-wall slide on my 2017 Adventurer is showing a tiny bit of this too. The top fits flush but the bottom is out about 1/3rd of an inch. That slide sure creaks and moans loudly going out or in.

creativepart, with the slide out, from the outside look at the bottom of the slide at all of the roller tracks and make sure none of the not rolling.
With the slide in look as best as you can between the slide floor and the coach floor for any debris. Have not heard anything about lubing the new type slide rails.

UPDATE: Full wall slide not closing anymore

After several different tries I was able to adjust the slide using the control panel and was able to bring the lower right corner in about 1/2 an inch. It is not completely sealed but much better than before. I also discovered a piece of rubber weather stripping stuck under one of the rollers. After removing the piece of rubber the slide moves in and out without any tremors as before.

The real issue appears to be the angle or tilt of the slide out wall. It is very tightly sealed at the top when closed both front and back but I cannot bring the lower right portion in any closer to the coach wall because it makes contact with the top first and then stops. I certainly have learned much about my RV in the past few days. Thanks for all of the help. I love my 2013 Adventurer 32H but my local dealer has one 2017 Adventurer 38Q left on the lot. Does anyone know if the 2017 model was updated with a newer slide mechanism? I am also sorry to hear that Winnebago is not making the Adventurer series anymore!

The 2017 has Power Gear slides. I'm not sure but a 2013 might have Schwintech slides. It if does I think you'd find the Power Gear slide mechanism is better.

If you get serious about the 2017 38Q La Mesa RV in Albuquerque had one in stock and lowered the price to $139,995. It was well optioned too.

The 2017 has the 6-speed transmission. This alone is a huge upgrade over the 2013 model.
