Carpet removal from Newmar

I haven't learned to navigate this forum yet; Found discussions about replacing flooring, but not able to find anything about specifically how to get the old carpet out from under slide-out. Can anyone point me to any tips? (guess I'll need remedial help to navigate)
The price a RV shop wanted to lay 85 sq ft of tile about stroked me out (more than $100.00/sq ft & I buy all the materials).
We have had this Dutch Star 13+ years & still like it. I've so far managed to do all the up-grades, (tiled entry, kitchen area & bath), new woodwork to accommodate new large flat screen TVs inside and out, added pantry etc.
If I can figure (or get instructed) the best way to get under slide, tiling the rest of the floor is easy, (well relatively easy). I have already tilted the slide as far as the adjustment bolts allow.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

As long as you have the patience you'll be able to do it. I did mine a couple of years ago (I helped an experienced person). After removing all of the furniture tear our as much carpeting as you can. (Be careful of the millions of staples that you'll be removing) When you get to the slide area there should be a metal plate with recessed screws. You'll need to remove the screws along the rail. Mine drove in at a downward angle and I used a square tip bit. Once the metal plate is removed you should be able to remove the carpeting thats under the strip. I'll check if I have photos of the rail and if so will post them. It wasn't hard just time consuming.
