Fitting New Carpet Under Slideout??

We have been considering replacing our carpeting. First question my installer/friend had was "How to fit the new carpet under the slideout?"
I was wondering how some of you dealt with this issue. Seems to me, if you don't secure the edge under the fully extended slideout perfectly, it would catch and eventually roll up or tear, or jam the slide. I can only slide my fingers an inch or so under the slide, and can't really feel any edge or metal holdown strip. I am hoping that the slideout does not have to be disconnected or leaned down on the outside? Help.

With your slide open how is it matched to the floor that you can see? Do you have a flap of rug on slide floor that you can lift up and see edge of existing rug on main floor with slide open?

No, it seems that mine (the actual slide out carpeting, wraps around the butt end of the slideout, and this all rides/brushes closely atop the actual floor carpeting.

Can you stop your slide 1/4 the way in and look with flashlight and see how floor is finished under slide. If not where the new rug finishes near slide you will have to staple with long staples fold rug under so its even with foam backing or try a metal rug finish strip but slide rollers if you have them will need to ride over it. May have to screw down strip with added screws.

Most times the slide must be tilted out at the top to gain access to replacing carpeting. The RV service center I use contracts a regular carpeting business for replacing carpeting, all the service center does is tilt the slide(s) out at the top. This BTW usually requires a fork truck and solid stands for support.
