Slide on our 2022 RP202 has been out of plumb since we purchased the unit. When "In" it is tight against the camper at the top, but to bottom is out about 1". What can be done to correct thi issue?

It sits on rollers, but they're pretty close together. What is it like when it's extended?

Extended it is slightly out of plumb. Hard to say exactly how much, only had a 4ft level.
Is this a normal situation?

Not for us, but I don't know about others.

We have a 2019 / 179 and picked it up new in July of 2018 and just by eyeing the slide out it has never looked wonkey

My 180 slide was shifted forward enough the seal tore and I had to replace it.  Did not leak water but very out of plumb.

Picked up our 177 in March 2011.  Although the top is tight to the side wall, the bottom sticks out maybe up to 3/8", I think due to the thickness of the seal.

I would take a look from the inside and remove any panel that may hinder you from seeing the bottom of the slide.  Once the slide is out you may find something sticking up that is preventing the slide from closing all the way.
