I have three ridges aligned with the slide where the carpet sticks up. I assume that the slide is causing it but the slide is already low on the outside. My main concern now is how to stretch out the carpet so that these high spots won't get worn. I know that this happens to others as I saw it on a coach looked at when I was shopping for mine. Has anyone had this fixed and if so how was it done?

I never fixed the carpet on my 98. The cabinet under the ice maker rubbed it when the slide came in and kept it rippled. I did a lot of slide adjusting between that and the outside seals creeping. Finally fine tuned it in favor of the outside seals.

We have the same problem. Streched the carpet a couple of years ago.
I thought it was the HWH slide pad problem, but after opening the end of the slide tube, the pads are OK.
We cannot raise the slide anymore since it is just touching the top of the opening, and the paint stripes do line up.
Our question: What part of the slide is scraping on the carpet, and can the floor be raised or spaced up?

Polloman,

Have you had the carpet repaired yet?

I have assumed that to keep the slide from dragging on the carpet, you would have to lower the slide on the outside as slide "tilts" on the wall opening causing the innermost edge to raise up as the outside is lowered. My slide is now low on the outside with the stripes slightly lower that those on the coach.

The carpet still needs to be repaired or replaced, but first I have to fix the problem.
Just tried moving the slide down a little more. This did not help. Still tight against the carpet.
Checked the slide movment and the slide is rocking downward. When bringing the slide in, the (outside)top just touches, and the bottom of the slide is still over an inch out.
After discussing this with a couple of other "OF" members, we are going to change the slide pads on the PS side and shim the bottem ones up.
