winnebago slides

I have a 99 Winnebago Itasca 36DL whose slide is starting to scratch the kitchen floor. I cannot see anything that supports the slide as it retracts into the room. What do they use to support the room as it closes and how do I access it to determine the problem. My coach has the HWH hydraulic system. Any help would be greatly appreciated. BGB

I'm not familiar with Winnebago designs specifically, but typically there is a roller on the bottom of the slide that acts kind of like an outrigger to balance it. The bulk of the weight is carried on the slide mechanism itself.

I believe that system uses teflon blocks as slides. They do break and work out over time. Research this and other forums. There have been several postings on how to replace those blocks,
