Need to locate 10" roller for slide-out

I am trying to find out what company provided the 10" rollers under the bedroom slide-out in our 2005 34' Georgie Boy Laundau with double slide-outs on a Workhorse Chassis (Vortec 8.1 engine). The slide-out includes the bed and the adjoining 3 door closet unit and has 4 or 5 10 steel rollers coated with rubber that the room rolls in and out on. Currently one roller must be replaced as it is broken and I may need to replace all of them.
I have located a company in Indianapolis, Indiana (Alexander Screw Products, Inc) that has made numerous RV slide-out rollers although none appear to be the exact roller on my unit, their web site is www.alexanderscrew.com.

Our living room slide has started breaking pins this past year. This slide-out has 4 6 and 1 4 steel rollers. I replaced the pin with hardened steel bolts since I am not sure who made the slide-out system. Can anyone tell me who made the bedroom and the living room slide-out systems? Both slide-outs are electric.

2005 Georgie Boy Landau Model 3402 DS WH, GM Vortec 8.1

Need manufacture of 10 rubber coated steel rollers used under bedroom slide-out
Need manufacture of 6 and 4 steel rollers used under living room slide-out

Need manufacture of actual bedroom electric slide-out system
Need manufacture of actual electric living room slide-out system

Thank you for any insight you can provide

Here are some answers to this issue

For those of you who may have a unit like mine her is what I have learned. (2005 34' Georgie Boy Landau double slide unit)

1. The 10" bedroom rollers with 1/4" round shaft, part #VTR-10 are conveyor belt rollers made by Cass Hudson Co., 28117 Charlotte Ave., Elkhart, IN 46517, Phone 800-423-1511 & 574-970-2100, web site www.casshudson.com then choose "Brackets & Rollers" from menu. Cost $7.00 each. Oh yes, one end of the 1/4" shaft is spring loaded - just push in this end to remove and replace the rollers.
2.Alexander Screw Products in Indianoplis did not make the rollers for my living room slideout but have rollers that could be used as replacements www.alexanderscrew.com
They actually provided the information to the Cass Hudson Company and they do have slide-out rollers that they have made for several makes of motorhomes.
3. AL-KO Kober Corp. purchased RBW Industries that made the slide-out system (#GSO-12024) on several models of Georgie Boy motorhomes. I purchased the replacement pins (#GR-1547 1/4" stanless steel clevis pin X 1 1/8") $2.19 ea. shipping was $16.55 for 6 of the small pins?!? You can get a PDF of the slide system with ability to purchase any replacement part needed.
Question - can I extend my bedroom slide about 1/2 way prior to jacking it up (from inside with a sissors jack) about an inch or so to replace the rollers? This would help me to get better access to the rollers and brackets. Just don't want to damage anything in the process.
Thank you

hey dennis, you posted good info for everyone. its good to see someone who got the problem solved actually post the results. i often extend slides halfway to replace glide blocks. just jack it up and put a solid wood block under the side of the room for safety before sticking your hand under it. if you can see the blocks, they often just drop into place.

I appreciate your reply. I have never changed slide-out rollers before and I did not want to cause additional damage by jacking up the room (which can be the type of luck I have had at times). Yes, for safety sake I will definately block-up the room once I get it up.
Nice to hear from someone that has experience with this issue.

Thank you Azpete
