Do you have the factory carpet , or has someone changed out the flooring ?

Marks from my living room slide rollers, on the carpet, disappear in a couple of days with the slide open.

I made a set of floor protecters out of .040" aluminum. Coated bottom side rubber so they would not scoot. Aluminum is stiff enough to not telegraph a piece of dirt through to the floor. These were made after installation of hardwood in the entire coach.

Gee, has anyone really looked at the roller and surrounding area?
How about watching it as it comes in?
You never know until you really start looking at everything.

Yes, spent a lot of time watching. Problem is they pick up dirt and depending on the type of slide dirt accumulates in areas very hard to clean. So to truly never get a scratch I chose to add protecters. Takes 30 seconds extra and my floors have zero marks.

I used a rustoleum product called leak seal. Several coats on the back side.

Thin doormat cut in strips will not move when the slide retracts. Got it at Home Depot for $10.

The main problem is that the rollers are made to roll from side to side in the coach.
When driving, you get a small amount of front to back movement, which makes the roller slide against the floor, dirt on the roller makes it worse.

I used some 1" wide strips of UHMW tape (almost transparent) stuck to the floor.Nothing to fiddle with when breaking camp.

It is low cost on ebay.

On mine there is a rub block in the center. I was told to increase the thickness when removing the carpet. The block sits about 4 to 6 inches back when slide is out. I made a Teflon block to fit over the old one and screwed it in place. But I did this before I recovered the slide because I drilled 2 holes so I can screw it In place. Now mine is a single slide with table and couch.
