Neither of my slides look that way. Doubt it is normal.

I failed to check first and the driver's side LR slide hit a chair and bent the carriage underneath, which made it stick out like your photo. Next time I had it in a shop, I asked if they could adjust it so it was flush with the side of the rig and they did. Might be worth a look.
Thanks for the tip. I pick it up from the dealer tomorrow.

I hear that. Thank you.

Because it has the "scoop" out there on the slide doesn't mean it's not normal; thousands/millions of trailers have that design when crossing over the seam at a slide - I see them all the time. Your call to action is to fix what is going to be a problem. Some tell you it's not normal simply because they have no experience yet assume they are an authoritative source;

What you have to look at is where the fender skirt is mounted. It may be mounted to the facia and that would make it sit “out” further than the piece that was mounted to the exterior side of the trailer. I see it on lots of different brands, and types of slides ( hydraulic, schwintek, electric, cable...etc).

If the SLIDE is sealed when retracted and the skirt edges line up, then I don’t see a problem.

How about a picture of the matching slide on the other side? I don't see how the fender could be mounted flush if it is mounted on the slide. The outer face of the slide sits out about 3/4 of an inch from the side of the RV.
