Success Removing Slide Roller Tile Marks

Anyone have any success removing these tile marks? Have used protectors since day one but still have roller marks. Nothing we've tried has worked.

Thanks for replies...

Ceramic tile?


Is the tile damaged (can you feel a groove)?


Pictures?

Not surprised ... I'm sure there are liability issues as well as effectiveness issues.


In my case (13 year old coach with high gloss ceramic tiles) it's actually surface wear. I can't fix the wear but I try to prevent additional wear. Mine is wear under the roller where the roller contacts the floor during travel. For the last 3 years I have been taping the area, prior to bringing in the slides, with 3M/Scotch No Residue tape. 1 short piece of tape on floor directly under each roller. Pretty much stopped additional wear. After you reach your destination, deploy the slide, and look at the tape, you can see the wear pattern. The vehicle motion is grinding the rollers back and forth on the tiles.

Got to be kidding? Our slide must have 10 protectors. Iíll be on my knees for an hour every time laying tape. I donít doubt you. Just lots of work. Iím getting good at bending these floor protectors

nope ... not kidding ... takes maybe 3 minutes for the one flat floor slide (5 rollers). The others slides are either on carpet (bedroom) or not flat floor. I only tape where the roller rests when underway .... maybe 12" each x 5. On our Essex it's the pinch point that's an issue .... not the rolling.

Interesting....so even with the black floor ďpadsĒ, you are still seeing wear marks? We have only had ours a bit more than a year, but so far so good. We do clean our pads to remove grit which seems to stick to them...

Our only issue is the first and last pads tend to get pushed by the slide when pulling the FWS in.

Will be watching this thread for hints to prevent wear.

Our slide rollers behind the driver are really bad. They destroy the floor guard just about every time. Iím suspecting the rollers are not rolling, but pushing / sliding. We are starting to get wear marks even with protectors. Scheduled for service at Newmar for September.

The ceramic tiles are glazed in high temperature. Basically it is glass surface. When it is scratched, it is all over. It is like scratching glass window. Can not be buffed or polished. Me thinks

True but I guess it's a matter of "much better" vs. "looks like new". In my case (13 years of slides going in and out) wax isn't gonna' fix it

Minor imperfections can be buffed from glass, the rule of thumb is if your fingernail catchís in the mark itís two deep.

Since we're talking about "repairing floors" I want to share a MISTAKE I made! There is a product on the market called Rejuvenate which makes claims to repair "micro scratches and abrasions" on tile floors... My recommendation is DO NOT USE IT!! I tried it before our last trip. First, you do not get a surface finish any where near the original tile finish (gloss & clarity)! When the slides are deployed the rollers leave huge marks in the finish which are worse than the marks left on the untreated tile. THEN, when you realize your mistake you have to remove the Rejuvenate from the tile... After much research I found the manufacturers suggestion is to use a cup of vinegar in a gallon of water... Good Luck With That!! I finally filled a spray bottle with pure vinegar and attacked the floor with a "pot scrubber" sponge! After two days on my hands and knees all of the Rejuvenate has been removed from our floors!! Don't make my mistake, stay away from this product!!
