Another newbie slide question

Just bought this Dutchman about a month ago and never noticed this slide till I was outside having a beer looking at the camper. I see there is roller on each side of the slide is that to act like a adjustment? Can see the top left of the slide seal showing. Thank you!

A photo of the roller would help a lot. While the slide is out look and see if you can determine why the primary seal is out of place. It may be rotted and what you see is what is being pressed up and out instead of being flattened against the secondary seal, if it has one.


Then ,when you have time create a signature line with the specifics of the RV so we'll know what we're talking about.

That is a slide roller and it does look to be adjustable. Are both rollers equal in height?

Look on the inside also. I would suspect two or possibly more rollers per side.

That roller is really not meant to support the entire weight of the slide. It looks like you may have an Accu Slide. Does the slide have cables on the sides or a large arm underneath with gears?

It has tracks on the bottom of the slide like it's gear driven

That's interesting Frank. What would support the slide to keep it off the floor in your estimation? Not one roller for sure but maybe several rollers for support?
