Slideout tilts too much

Recommended Posts

Our slideout on our 2020 Keystone Alpine tilts about 3 1/2 inches. Can’t sit at the table because it’s too uncomfortable. Our two recliners tilt back so much it’s hard to get up and they keep sliding back. When I move everything to vacuum and walk on the slide I feel like I’m going to fall out the window. We’ve taken it to several places, but are always told it’s the way it’s made.  We tried adjusting it up 1 inch and then it won’t come in correctly. Question is two fold:  is there a fix?  Can we adjust it up while parked and back down again to pull it back in each time or will that ruin the slide?

It sounds like you are experiencing issues with the alignment and stability of the slideout in your Keystone Alpine. While it's true that there may be limitations in how much the slideout can be adjusted due to the way it's manufactured, there may still be some things you can do to improve the situation.

First, I would suggest checking the alignment of the slideout to ensure that it's level and properly seated when extended. If it's not, then you may need to make some adjustments to the slideout mechanism or the leveling of the RV.

If the alignment appears to be correct, then it's possible that the slideout is simply too heavy or not properly supported, which can cause it to tilt or feel unstable. In this case, you may need to add additional support, such as stabilizer jacks or slideout supports, to help distribute the weight and keep the slideout level.

As for your second question, it's generally not recommended to adjust the slideout height while it's extended. Doing so could potentially cause damage to the slideout mechanism or the RV itself, and may even create a safety hazard if the slideout becomes unstable or difficult to retract.

If you're unsure of how to properly address the issues with your slideout, I would recommend consulting with a professional RV technician or Keystone dealer for guidance and assistance. They can assess the situation and provide recommendations for how to address the issue safely and effectively.
