I have an issue with our bed slide with the Bal-Accu system installed. Problem is that the top left and bottom right corners are in a bind and have destroyed the wipes. On inspection, I have found that the sill is running down towards the front the king studs are plumb. So, I am thinking to take the box out of the bind I would have to shim up the rollers by at least 1/4"+ on the first one then a 1/8" on the second one, which I don't think is likely to do no space to get at the screws or I have some three-roller plates which I could shim too different thicknesses to create the run on the sill. One other thing that came to mind was to buy a J-36 roller and fix the outside wall. Thoughts, please.
Make sense?

Ok, Sir.
Let's hope these pictures tell my story. you will I tried to jam in the new seals with no room for the flip in one picture? I had thought that the bottom sill weld was broken but I think it was welded in wrong.

I'm struggling to understand the problem, even with the photos. Since the top left and bottom right is binding, the first thing I'd check for is the slide box racked.

Not Shure what is meant by racked, I thought that the box was a parallelogram but, on a check, it is not the box is just laying down to the left outside view.

Unfortunately attention to detail and the words plumb, level, straight, or square do not exist in the vocabulary of the mass producing midwest RV manufacturers. They have a hard time getting so much as a decal straight. They also could care less what happens as soon as the sale is made.

I still have a bent frame to deal with still when I can make the trip to the AZ fabricators.

I was told that the gap on either side of the box outside wall should be 5/8" and I haven't got that.

Possibly the bent frame is causing your slide problem?
