Question about RVs
There are several different slide systems on the market today. If your system has the rack and pinion gear on the bottom of the slide you will see one on each end. Between the gear blocks you will see a connecting rod which has a bolt through the square tube and through the shaft of the gear block. You will need to count the teeth (I use a white grease pencil and mark every 5th tooth to make it easy) so that you can see how far off the gear blocks are from one another. Disconnect the shaft opposite from the end you want to adjust and use a large crescent (adjustable) wrench turn the shaft to move the gear block (and the slide) to the proper location. Once you have the slide where you want it reattach the cross shaft. Now everything is lined back up and timed correctly but chances are that it will not stay until you determine what caused it to be out of adjustment. Are any teeth missing on the pinion gear or the rack? Has the side wall or floor rotted causing an issue with the structural integrity of the slide, are the slide seals sticking causing the slide to hang up (should be lubricated at a minimum of every six months with 100% silicone spray)? Until you determine the cause of the actual failure you will be wasting time making adjustments. Good luck.
