Slide repair

We have a 12' slide on a 2002 Damon Intruder Class A Motorhome that is stuck. We've been told the issue is that the rollers were re-installed on top of the flooring during a remodel, instead of being imbedded (cut out). The metal frame is dragging and has worn marks on the wood like flooring when they drag, and now they drag so much that it ill not move the slide in or out without two men pushing to assist.

A repair services says we must have the slide taken out and re-engineered.

Any feedback on what we should expect in terms of cost and length of time for repairs would be very much appreciated! We are "stuck" with the slide in the extended position. Thanks!

I can't help directly with cost as mine is a warranty job. My long slide failed and motors had to be disconnected and the slide pushed in. When the service people pushed it in it went in cocked and did damage to the vinyl flooring and some of the trim. I took it to the dealer on August 12th with the knowledge that they couldn't look at for 10 days and then they would order parts. Yesterday I made my six or seventh call to them and the slide has been fixed since last week but they were shorted two trim panels and the floor wasn't repaired. Floor people to be in tomorrow and trim panels are in transit to be delivered any day. I am supposed to get a call next week on when to pick it up. It will be close to 15 weeks since I dropped it off. Talking to the people in the service department the slide job was a 3 and half day job plus the flooring. I would think that you are looking at 30 plus hours of labor for one or two people plus parts which I would guess to be in excess of 3 to 5K plus whatever parts needed.

There is got to be a way to get the slide in enough to be able to travel even if continues to damage the floor which will be fixed as you already know the floor has to be cut anyway to embed the tracks. I feared the same when mine stuck out but there was a way to by-pass the motors and gears to be able to push the slide in.
