Restoring a coachman clipper, stuck on the slides system. For some reason. I cannot close them without hitting each other inside. What am i missing. Cannot remember how it was before. Had some photo, cannot find them.Thanks for any help.

Not sure exactly what your asking. The beds should slide in from the outside of the camper. Make sure nothing is in the way of the beds. They really shouldn't hit each other, but I never owned your camper.

Could something actually be stuck in the bed track itself a wayward screw can cause things to stop dead from sliding in as well. Had that happen to me once on my popup. Sometimes it could be something underneath the bed itself to cause things to hit. I've never owned a clipper so don't know how the bed supports are on it.

Both side goes in and it was working before, now i placed the track exactly at the same place, and now the track will hit each other in the middle before fully in.

Ok, so still trying to figure out what your saying. Did you remove the bed slides and then reattach them and now they don't work?

I think I kind of know what you're experiencing. My dutchman that I got used has a king bed on one end that is tricky. I think someone set it up once without the additional supports in place and the track got slightly bent. Now when I slide the beds in they hit in the middle and there's still some bed on the outside. What I found it that the track rail has an exterior piece, and and interior piece that move and the interior is binding somewhere and so it pushes the exterior one back into the camper without being fully seated. I know that sounds complicated but think of it this way, on the edge of the camper is a bracket that the exterior rail glides in, then the interior rail is inside of that and comes put further like a drawer glide. What I use to do sometimes is pull the bed out just a little so I can get into the camper and I use a wood block and a hammer to tap the exterior rail until it's fully seated around the interior one. Hope that makes sense
