jrchep: Welcome to the IRV2 forum. There has been some discussion about these bushings in the past. Go to the Winnebago forum and search for "slideout bushing". There are a couple of threads that provide details on how to replace these. . It seems to be pretty straight forward. I have a similar problem with the bushing in mine... they are slowly breaking apart and soon will need to be replaced. I'm hoping they will be as easy to replace as the threads indicate.
