slides not even?

I have a 2012 Voltage 3950 with the epic package
On all 3 slides when fully opened one side or the other is not fully opened (I can put me fingers between the slide and the wall)One side is all the way on wall and if I run my fingers on top and go towards the other side the gap gets bigger until I get to the other side where I can put my fingers between the slide and the wall
But when the slides are fully in they are tight and even??

Do you have electric or hydraulic slides?
First and foremost, make sure the rig is absoulutely level before you extend the slides. Most of the the time the motors get out of sync and causes this problem. Sort of an easy fix if you're willing.

Schwintek slides

This is the best tutorial I've found.

All voltage slides are electric.

Great info as two of my five slides are the Schwintek system and could use adjustment.

Yet ANOTHER document that should have been included with the trailer.

I have the same issue with my bedroom/closet slide. Even when we have a driving rain it doesn't leak. I'm happy about that. Like yours, it seals up fine when we pull the slide in.

I called Dutchman when my main slide came out uneven and they said to run it in and out 3 times and it would 'reset' itself. I was skeptical but I did it and it worked. Worth a try.
