2016 29ss slide

Can anyone with experience with the bal slide system tell me if the chain and cable on the right is too loose?

Have no experience with the bal system but do with garage door openers which kinda work the same. when the garage door is closed there will be one side of the pulley looser than the other ,that is what holds it closed or in your case,holds the slide in. The left cable should be slack when the slide is out.

Bringing this back to see if answer ever was found. I have a similar scenario when slide is out the cable on the left side is very loose and the top cable visible form the outside has more that 1" play. Anyone ever delve into adjusting these?

When I had a BAL system, one of the cables was also "loose". If it was open either the top or bottom was loose, and closed the opposite was loose. I read either on their website or the manual that came with the trailer that slack was normal. I can't say if an inch of play is normal, but if it's working okay I would leave it alone. They can be adjusted though. If you are under warranty I would let the dealer do it.

On a side note, the screws or bolts holding the motor above those slides have a tendency to back out. It happened to me also. You can check by partially opening the slide and looking over the top of it. This should allow you to tighten any if necessary, but it is very tight in there on a couple bolts.

So since my reply, I spoke with Tim at Norco/BAL. He is the tech adviser who can speak on these systems. My cables were similar to the photos above and he advised this is too loose especially if the cables visible on the outside of the slide box sag. I adjusted per his direction and everything seems OK now. Just a pain to remove all the trim for adjustments. Needs to be a better fastener system instead of Brad nails...possibly screws.
