I own a JT 340FLR with Patio Option and I noticed the slide seems to run out and in slower that the others also noticed that when the slide is extended the bottom trim is not flush against the wall, which tells me that the slide seems to be leaning downwards when extended. Has anyone done an adjusting on the slide and how can it be done?

Thanks in advanced,
Manny

Here are the manuals from the slides forum. viewtopic.php?f=65&t=2662

Second "topic" down has the directions in the manual.

ALso, there are some youtube videos that show the process.

That slide on ours was always slower than the other 2, I figured it was a size/weight issue.

Really? I would think the slide with the fridge, stove and couch would be the heaviest. But what I see is that the slide I am talking about is not flush with the trim at the bottom which makes it look like it is leaning downwards.

Are you talking about the vertical trim on the slide vs the interior wall ? If thats the case I would bet it needs a cable adjustment.
