Like any component on an RV, the Accu-Slide cable slide room is liable to wear down and require maintenance after repeated uses, especially when it comes to the cables that retract and extend the unit. If you notice that your slide room doesn’t seem to pull tightly into the wall or push all the way out, you may need to take a look at the cables to see whether they could use a little tightening.

In this lesson, RV expert Dave Solberg walks you step-by-step through the process of inspecting and tightening loose cables on an Accu-Slide cable slide room. He first shows you how to utilize a tape measure and string to determine where the cable should optimally hang, and then demonstrates the proper way to tighten a loose cable with a torque wrench. Take advantage of Dave’s quick tips for removing slack from your slide room’s cables!
