Coming in its fine. The slide appears to line up fine from the outside and it looks good and even when it comes into rest. This unit was in dealer inventory for several years and used by the owner (not sure how kind they were to it.) I know when i picked up the trailer the slide was open and the jacks were not down. Should i open a new topic on this issue? anyone have any thoughts?
Vinnie, I've not encountered that issue before but if it is happening consistantly my gut feeling is that you might be correct that some type of drag is going on. Obviously the dealer should have put the jacks down before extending the slide. Maybe some lube is in order. I remember my manual said something about lube. I've never done it though but our trailer isn't out a lot and it's stored in a nice dry inside environment.
