Slide out roller assembly

As I rolled out my driver's side slideout, I picked up pieces of the front roller bearings on the carpet. Is it possible to replace the roller without taking it to the dealer?

Need info.

Anything is possiable depending on your mechanical ability. You did not post what you are working on so it is hard for the folks on here to chime in to help you out. The best bet is to call the mfg. and order the roller and maybe they can give you some hints on how to get it in, or with more info. on your unit maybe someone on here has done it and can tell you how to do it.

I replaced one of my rollers just last week. We had the same problem that you describe, pieces of bearing on the floor. You can order the rollers from Newmar.

I had a 3 foot length of 2 by 6 that had been cut diagonally from the 6 inches on the one end down to about 1 1/4 inches on the other. That small end was thin enough to easily slide it under the floor of the slide-out when it it was in a stopped position where the roller was first riding on the living room floor. I took two shorter 2x4s stacked to use as a fulcrum for the diagonally cut 2x6. My wife placed her foot on the 2x6 and applied pressure to lift the floor enough to lift the roller off the floor.

The axle shaft of the roller is under spring loaded tension. it only depresses in one direction. You have to test to see which end it is. I used a punch pin the size of the shaft to depress it enough to get it slip out of the hole in the bracket. To install the replacement roller, I inserted the non-spring-loaded end of the shaft into the bracket and used a big flat bladed screw driver to depress the spring loaded shaft to get it to slip the shaft into the hole in the other bracket. Let the floor back down; cleared away the 2x6 and 2x4s and it works fine! It took less than 30 minutes.

Good luck!

I actually replaced the the plastic covering with PVC pipe from lowes for 4$
Not hard to do. I heated the plastic and hammered it on then reinstalled.
