Slide out problem for the newbie.

Hello everyone, glad I found this group. I have installed new vinyl flooring in our 1999 windsport, but when we closed the slide, it buckled the new floor. After research on adjusting the slide, tried that. So long story short, we removed the slide shoe with numerous tools. We were able to get the slide in now, but was wondering if the shoe stabalizes the bottom of the slide, and do we need to replace the shoe. Any help would be appriciated. Thank You

Existing flooring was carpet? How much thicker is the vinyl that it caused a problem?

Yes there was carpet. The vinyl is not as thick as the pad and carpet.

If it's thinner, then something has changed. Was the vinyl placed as far under the slide as the carpet/pad and was weight applied to the edge while drying?

If not, maybe the edge of the vinyl curled and then got caught by the foot?
