I will think more and maybe start a thread seeking suggestions.
I am going up to morrow so I may post photos etc.

Hmm, sort of sounds like it might not be running square, if you need to push one side then the other. If the track is true on both sides it should just roll, but i suppose its much heavier than mine. Is the roof frame braced so it doesn't rack when pushed on one side? Yeah, a photo would help.
