Can a Sagging Out Of Level RV Slide Out Be Adjusted?
Can a sagging out of level slide out on a travel trailer be adjusted or is it necessary to purchase separate leveling jacks just for the slideout?Protect your RV and your family while on the road: Join Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service Today and save!
ANSWER: Greetings William thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
To answer your initial question; yes slide out rooms can be adjusted. If the actual floor of the slideout is sagging then we are talking about a structural problem not an adjustment problem.
Most RV slide outs are designed to work without using additional leveling jacks. As long as the RV itself is level the slide out should also come out level, if it does not then there is a problem that must be resolved.
Either way I do not recommend that any do-it-yourselfer RVer start messing with the adjustments on their slide-outs. Depending on the type of slide-out you have there could be up to 6 points that have to be adjusted in a specific order or it could cause severe damage to your slide-out or your RV.

My suggestion to you is that you take your trailer in and have a Certified RV Technician diagnose, repair or properly adjust the slide-out. If you do it yourself and cause damage to the slide-out, you could be stuck with a repair bill of several thousand dollars.
I hope this helps.
