slide toppers

One edge on one end of our slide topper on the living room side (big one) seems to have stretched, it is not tight when slide is open the other end is tight along the edge when extended. we thought that the spring was broken but have determined that it is not the case. Has this happened to any one else and did you replace the fabric or just leave it as is.

Sometimes the installer leaves out the small screws that hold the piping in place on the sidewall bracket. If there is no screws or if you remove the existing ones, try sliding the fabric in the aluminum extrusion on the sidewall one way or the other. In other words, the fabric may not be square with the roller tube any longer.

Ours is stretched on one end. I really think I did it by running a strap over it trying to quiet the flapping down. It hasn't caused any problems. I'll replace them in the near future tho, due to tearing from wind.
