Adjust slide horizontally

My 2014 Challenger 37GT has a little water leak in the drivers side 8ft couch slide when retracted. I noticed when it is retracted, the bottom right exterior corner of the slide comes in contact with the horizontal side trim just above the storage compartments. The front corner has lots of clearance. I would LOVE to know how to adjust the horizontal position of a slide. I am not afraid to do maintenance and repairs and wonder if the particular job is possible or if maybe I must have it done at a repair facility.

Other than moving the slide's rollers up or down there is not much adjustment available for the do-it-yourselfers. To fix properly, I would imagine the entire wall would have to the loosened and shimmed. To do that the slide would have to be removed. That type of repair is done by the large RV dealers or the factory repair facilities and the are many videos on you-tube showing the repair process.
