Removal of bedroom slide outside fiberglass floor cover

we have a 1998 carriage carrie light. and the out side fiberglass cover that hides the slide rails and wiring is all cracked and is delamiating and the plywood it is laminated to is wet. how hard is it to remove that peice of fiberglass so the the underside of the slide can dry and will it hurt the slide any to have it removed. the fiberglass is cracked where the slide rollers are that help it glide in. the inside floor is still solid it is just the decorative cover on the outside that needs removed. thanks

humm if i am looking at that right ... are you sure its just a cover for wiring ..acc

it looks like the stander under side floor for a slide and if so you are getting water in the roof of the slide some where


if it is just a cover i dont think you could hurt it any more then it is

i would just make sure well you have to pull the caps off the ends/ under side of the floor can get water running under it if it rains and you would be good

,,, guessing ....

I think it is just a cover. I can stick my hand in the cracks and can feel the floor above. the fiberglass is about a 1/4" thick. I will look at it again to make sure.

just went out and stuck my hand in one of the cracks. there is a good 2 to 3" of airspace before you hit the floor. that gap is filled with insulation.

That is your floor. Unlike big slide floors, which are plywood only, bed floors are usually studded and have a top floor and a lower floor. You need to pull that slide out to properly resecure and rebuild it all.

OK thanks. For me its not worth removing it completely. I'll just live with it. If anything. I'll just remove the damp insulation
