Bedroom Slide Roller

I have a 2006 Sun Voyager W24. The closet slide rollers appear to be froze up or have slipped down a little inside the bracket. No problem opening and closing but when you go outside and look at the bottom of the slide the brackets are tearing up the outside flooring of the slide. I only notices it because some of the weatherproof material is hanging down and it looks like the bracket is cutting into the material. Anyone have the same problem. Has anyone ever attempted to change the rollers. I am afraid it will have to go in the shop and remove the slide and repair the outside bottom as well as the rollers. Any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks.

You should be able to remove lower panels to inspect the rollers. We have had to add flat steel panels to help hold the weight of the room and keep the fasteners from pulling out.

Rv Slide Roller

Thanks RVWizard. I will look for access to the roller. I like the idea for the steel panel to support the weight. The middle roller is ok but the outside rollers are cutting into the floor. Thanks for your input.

I have an 07 tourmaster and the rt slide had 4 rollers underneath it and I saw that it was ripping a mesh cloth and exposing the rotted wood on the bottom...I took it to my guy ...he had to take the floor out which was gone...he ended up putting a totally new floor in it and put a sheet of plastic underneath the wood so the rollers wouldn't hang was all caused by a water leak on the side of the slide...cost me $1600. it has been on two years and no problems since jim k

Thanks MGO BLUE. That is what is probably what I will have to do. It should be covered under my ext warranty so I will get it looked at when we get back from Ak. I just ducted taped it for the interm. It is cutting into the wood so the floor will have to be replaced. The previous poster put metal where the rollers were and that will work. It definitely needs something more that the plastic mesh the factory uses. Maybe a complaint to Gulfstream would help. Not. Thanks for your response.

I have the same problem on my 2006 Yellowstone DP. I was thinking Duct Tape but a sheet of thin sheet metal should work just fine. Thanks for the tip.
