Bottom of slide gouged

Have read on the site that some have installed 1/8" stainless steel plates under their slides. One of my bedroom slides on my 05 Dip. PRQ has started to make grooves into the bottom of the slide. Jacked up the slide a little and checked if the rollers are turning and in good shape and they appear to be ok. The front roller is attached to the slide and rolls on the tile floor, the other two rollers are attached to the rig floor and the slide rolls on these rear two rollers (center and rear). My question is, if I install the SS plates to the bottom of the slide for the two rear rollers and not the front, will this throw off the manner in which the front roller rolls on the tile?

Our last 5er began to tear up the slide floor a week after purchase. I took it back to the factory service center for repair. They installed 1/16 SST strips the full length of the roller track, for the rollers to run on. It was still operating great when we sold the 5er 8 years later. The main thing-they said- was to properly countersink the screw heads so they would not tear up the rollers.
