Tom, I don't have a kitchen slide out. The drivers side living room slide and bedroom are all I have. If you go to Ernie Eckbergs Yahoo page (he does floors in RVs for a living) he posts pictures of some of the floors he has done at various stages of completion and it might give you an idea.

For the living room slide I just beveled the edge to fit under the metal that the rollers come up on.

Tom if you use 8mm flooring, which I would suggest, you can use a standard piece of residential door casing as your transition. Buy oak for it's durability. It angles up and is the right thickness to transition to the new flooring. The rollers will roll right up out of the sheet metal pockets. The slide jacks are a must for the kitchen slide. There is a aluminum angle at the slide opening that you butt the flooring up to. The jacks will help you on the drivers side slide with setting up the transition and inspecting the rollers and transition trays. If your doing the bedroom you will have to remove the bed and wood frame. All that will be left is the slide mechanism. Easy pizzi. No jacks needed there. On the passenger side that is tricky but can be done if you have a slide there. I had to jack it in and remove the lower face front where the 3 lower drawers are. It's all screwed together. One other thing. Check all the screws for tightness that hold the subfloor down. That way you won't have any sqeaks.

For those of you that have asked what a slide jack looks like here is one of two I built for the Drivers side slide. I used 2X3s instead of 2X4s. cheaper and lighter but just as strong.

They set in the top of the slide. I used old carpet on the side that is pushed up to the MH wall. When you bring in the slide it will raise the floor so that you can get under the slide. It will also let you inspect the rollers and change them out if needed. Any questions let me know. If your KSTAR is the same as mine I can send you pics and measurements.

I think I follow. And it makes sense.

To make sure I understand....You lay these on top of the slide, and then bring it in some, with the result being the slide will tilt, raising up the bottom somewhat. And that won't damage the slide or the side of the MH. (Assuming good padding)?

Yes, more information or pictures of the jacks in use, thank you.

I did the same to our 2000 Dutch Star. The biggest problem I had was finding two strong men to help me get back up on my feet after being on my knees so long. But it's a great improvment over carpet. You'll be glad you did it. You did a great job.

These are pics of the kitchen slide jacked up. Note the crown molding how close it is to the ceiling. You can see the rollers on the bottom and there is a piece of "L" metal at the edge that you butt the flooring up to. I only made one jack for this slide and it is 16" deep. don't throw it away after your finished either. I use mine to check the rollers and clean under the back of the cabinets about once a year. The other pics are of the Drivers side slide. You can get to the rollers to remove and replace or clean and lube with dry silicone. I replaced mine because the originals were a mess. The other pics are of the jacks for the bedroom passenger side slide you will need 2 of these @ 14". The big slide jacks are 24" you will need 2 of these. Any more info just ask and I'll answer what I can. I threw in the pic of my stairwell. I used Oak door sills stained to match. Had to rip out the sub floor in that area and the corian termination piece was too tall to leave in place. I took the lower piece of the dash out and the drawer. If you have surround sound you will find your bass speaker there. Mine didn't work so I replaced it. My flooring goes all the way to the fire wall.
