I removed one on a 97 Discovery many years ago. I built a platform and slid it out onto the platform so I could remove the skids, and the arms that opened and closed the slide.

In a modern motorhome, the slide can often be lifted in place and
the rollers replaced if damaged. Removing a slide is a huge issue.
I did find a repair facility in Lakeland, FL that was able to replace
a bad roller in this manner. Here is the link:

Good luck.

Yes I have the second slide out out now on a coach with rotted floors. Lost track on how many I've had to put and repair something. Although, sometime a roller can be replaced without having to pull the slide out. I would have to see how it was installed. You can drive the room up onto wedges an inch or so to get a look underneath. Many rollers have a spring loaded axle that can be pressed in and removed if you have enough head room and can reach it.

Thanks for the response Mike, my slide is not on rollers, wish it was, it moves in and out on three black plastic skids (12x6") so I'm thinking that the slide will have to be pulled to replace the skids with the same thing (if they can be found) or rollers will have to be installed somehow.

This may give you an idea of what's involved to get access without completely removing the slide. The youtube link will let you go full screen...
