New floor protectors for FWS
The flange of the floor protectors on our 2015 4369 VTDP have started to crack after 2 years; not too bad I guess. So I ordered some new ones. The new ones no longer have the flange and the felt has been replaced with a "hard" rubber backing. My first thought was great as the flange is what was failing. But when I saw the hard rubber backing I was concerned that they would not stay in place while retracting the slide. Sure enough, as the slide came up the ramp and the rollers engaged the protectors, they slid back out of the way. Not a good solution.
To counter the sliding effect, we placed a small piece of the tacky rubber shelf liner material under the front edge and tried it again. This seemed to work and confirmed that the hard rubber was a bad choice.
I am curious what others have done. Do you still use the protectors? Have you replaced yours with something else? Have your originals broke down like ours?
Would appreciate any advice.
