Expand-out and floor clearance

I have the following question regarding the expand-out. My unit is 1993 Layton fifth wheel. I have extracted the carpet all the way to wher the expando stops. I am wanting to put down laminant flooring but am concern with thickness. It will be glued down but I guess my question would be, is there away to ajust the hight of the expand-out from the floor. So i can make sure I do not scratch the new flooring. It looks like there may be a problem at the fully extended when retracting back in.

This appears to be a common complaint about slide-out rooms. The rollers below the slide floor are supposed to bear the room weight and roll over the carpeting or other covering. Often they make severe wear tracks on the carpeting/floor covering. Ours was so bad at purchase, the rollers actually cut the carpeting; requiring carpet replacement in 3 months of purchase.
If you are a DIY person you may download the installation, service, troubleshooting manual for your model and make of slide mechanism here: Aero-Rv.com - Aerolite Ultra Lite RV Travel Trailer and Expandable Hybrid Campers , under "powered slides-beds". I have decided that most RV service shops personnel, actually do not know much more than we do about adjusting slide mechanisms.
