FC0F99FC-F36F-4FA9-A885-658B389DB48C.jpegI have a 2021 Bighorn 3120RK. The top of one of the slides does not open flush with the camper so it rocks. The bottom opens all the way up. How do you adjust the slide the whole slide sits flush on the wall. The bottom is fine the top has about 3/4” of gap to the wall. I looked at the adjustments and looks like I see where this is adjustable. Just want any advice from anyone who adjusted their slides. Thanks

I haven't done this myself, but you can find information on adjusting the room in THIS Lippert manual (page 16) located in Tools/Heartland Owners Guides/Slide-Outs/Rooms/Lippert tab on the tool bar at the top of the Forum.

Before you adjust anything paint all the adjustment brackets to give you a reference as to where you started.
Also inspect your chassis and suspension.
Look for bent or broken hangers / leaf springs.
Take a look at I beam looking for cracks bending twisting or bulging.
If all that looks normal then adjust in small incriments.

If this leaning in is something new, and it used to be straight, look for another explanation. Perhaps something is on top of the slide preventing the top from extending fully.

This video seemed pretty good. As you raise the outside of the slide room with the slideout adjustments, the top of the slide will move closer to the RV wall when the slide is closed.

It was the adjustment to tip the top out more. The one with the pic I showed. Basically loosen the two horizontal bolts then adjust the vertical mount lower which brought the inside top of the slide closer to the wall
