The rear lower corner slide seems out of adjustment (hangs lower 3/16" than the front corner) on our 2006 Beaver Monterey. The showing indication is the paint swirls don't match (from the secured wall to the slide) as well as the spacing compared to front lower corner. The slide operates smoothly, all looks fine from the interior, doesn't show any interior water leaks. The owners manual doesn't illustrate how to adjust. Has anyone messed with their adjustments? I can see a couple of long threaded bolts at each end of the slide but don't want to arbitrarily begin wrenching the bolt heads. I like preventative maintenance!!!
If it is not a problem I would leave it alone. Ever here the old saying, if it ain't broke don't fix it?

I just saw the rear of my slide (drivers side) had dropped about a 1/2 inch. What I discovered was the two adjusting nuts where the slide rail attaches to the slideout were loose because of the thin washers they used had bent into the slot, which caused the nuts to be loose. Consequently, the slide had dropped down. I replaced the thin washwers with very thick ones, which will not bend, and readjusted the slide.

This company, Lippert makes most of the slideouts used in the RV industry. Here are the owners manuals including slideout adjustments. Good luck!

My 2004 36ft Beaver Monterey has the exact same problem. The top of the bay door beneath the slide binds a little when the slide is in. I believe the solution is the slide rollers under the slide floor. The adjustment bolts can be seen when the slide is out. On mine there are 4 bolts. My plan is to adjust 3 bolts and leave the front-most bolt alone. For example, the rear-most bolt is adjusted 3/4 turn, the next bolt 1/2 turn, the 3rd bolt going forward is adjusted 1/4 turn. The service manager at Beaver Coach Sales in Bend Oregon agrees with my plan.
The only other adjustment is on the slide rail foot which attaches the slide to the slide rail. The adjustment is max'd out on mine, so it is not an easy option -- unless I want to expand the adjustment slots on the foot.
Good luck, let us know your solution.

I had a similiar problem only mine was noticeable inside the RV. I contacted Coachmen and they told me if it operates OK and does not leak, they would not approve warranty work to have it adjusted. It only took about 3 minutes to adjust. I ran the slide out, then placed a board underneath the slide along with a car jack. I applied just enough pressure with the jack to take the load off the adjusting bolts. After making sure all bolts were loose that attach the slide to the support bracket, I raised the slide with the jack to the position that was needed to level the slide, then snugged up the adjusting bolts and locked them with the lock nuts. I then removed the jack and now all is straight/level with "NO THANKS TO COACHMEN."
If you attempt to level yours, just take your time and do not make large changes. Make sure that you bring your slide in slowly or small amounts so if you need to change the adjustment you can see what is going on.
Hope this helps.
