Our new 2013 SF32RL 5ver seems to really work hard sliding the slides in and out.we have to slide them in and out multiple times to get them to close. Our bubble levels, one on front center and one on left side show dead on zero level but it just seems the slides keep binding. should I add another level on the back center? Is there a special order in which to reract the slides? I also know not to use the rear stablizers to lift, just to stablize so I don't think I'm twisting anything? Ideas?

Are your slides electric or hydraulic? Assuming they are electric rack and pinion, try lubricating your the rack gear under the slide, then run it in and out a couple of times. Also, have someone run the slides in while you are outside watching. Be sure it is not out of adjustment as it is traveling. Pull the slide in until it likes 6" or so closing, then measure each side top and bottom and make sure it isn't cockeyed. Lubricating the gears would be the first thing to try, though. Unless you are badly out of level, that won't keep your slides from operating.

If the slides need adjustment, your dealer should be able to take care of that under warranty. I've never had to adjust my slides, but it doesn't look like it would be that hard to do.

Check under slide room for supporting rollers; as in, not fastened, torn away, twisted, not square, missing, . . .

Inside edge of slide floor rollers are attached to slide floor. Outboard end rollers are attached to trailer floor.
There are way to few roller sets. Some have damaged their slide floor's inside edge because of lack of edge support.
We had items left by factory under slide that caused problems & damage. Very little room to work when not removing slide room as Schwintek says to do.
