slideout adjustment on carpet

After my slideout is retracted in and sits in for awhile, there are intentions on the carpet caused by the slideout rollers. Are there any adjustments for this?
Thanks ...............

No that is something we live with. You may try to vac them out but the foam pad under rug will just leave the impression in rug.
If your slide is open for extended spell it will rise up somewhat but not completely.

We live with ours also, if it really bothers you you may want to try the ice cube trick. Place ice cubes along the whole length of the indentation, as they melt they usually bring the carpet back up fully. This is what we've done for years when we move furniture around in a carpeted room and it leaves indentations, sometimes with furniture that has not moved for ten years!

I cut a piece of 1/4" plywood a little wider than the roller & about 24" long for each roller. When I get back from a trip, & know the slide is going to be retracted for a while, I insert the plywood under the rollers. This distributes the weight over a larger area & helps with the indents.
