Slide-out scratching floor

The big slide is cutting the tile floor. (2010 Adventurer) I was told by the shop its adjusted all up. Does anyone have info to share about a fix?

I have looked under and don't see any screws hanging too low?

I have heard of people putting teflon strips down to stop the scratching when you bring the slide in.

That sounds like a lot of work if you are opening and closing the slides often. Not so bad if you stay in one place for a long time.

I had the same problem. Bought a sheet of 1/8" plexiglass from Lowes, I think maybe 18" x 24", and cut it in half to lay on the floor when putting the slide in.

Mine wasn't cutting the floor, but it was starting to leave black marks. I cut strips from a heavy duty chair mat and lay them under the slide when we bring it in. Works great and they're pretty easy to store out of the way when the slide is out.

Check your slide out rollers. The axles bend over time.

We use the thin vinyl cutting matts one would use in the kitchen. Very inexpensive and durable.

Slide-out skid or glide

HWH and Winnie, and others, have what is called a skid or glide or sometimes slide-out shoe. Polyethylene or sometimes hardwood, that mounts on the interior edge of the slide. Curved to ride up over the interior rug or tiles. I have also seen hard rug, like on the bottom of a boat trailer used for the same thing. A skid pad.
