I am sure that someone has already discussed this but I am having trouble locating. Our new trailer went to the dealer for repair of the problems that we had on our first outing. I am curious about my slide out in the bedroom now. The dealer adjusted the slide because I could see daylight along the bottom edges when it was closed. Upon arriving home and opening the slide, I noticed some small flakes of wood, which I think came off of the floor of the slide? What would cause this and is it normal with a new trailer? Should I bring it back to the dealer?

I don't think its normal, but it could just mean that it was adjusted too far.

I found that I was constantly returning our new trailer for tweaking for the first few months. some things they would adjust, and I would need to say that it still needed adjustment after a road trip( I think once shaken everything moves a bit more), so I would take it back for a tweak.

rolling it in soon for the beginning of the year tweaking.(shower door still binding and such).

it gets frustrating. - seems to be dependant on the shop - do enough to get rid of you today.

I experienced the same issue,slideouts not properly adjusted. The dealer got it right the 4th time. Wood flakes, after 3 years we're still finding them where they vibrate out of nooks N crannies.
A downside, one slideout was riding heavily on the rollers; to the point it destroyed the wood/filon covering on the bottom of the slideout where the rollers tracked. The solution was a SST strip installed where the rollers tracked, which efficiently solved the problem.
