Does everything have to happen all together?
I was hoping to not have to deal with slides right now but . . the front slide (has the couch and dinette) is beginning to make a big impression in the carpet when in the 'in' position. We started noticing it about 3 months ago and it is very evident on the front part of the slide near the driver's seat. Did not notice this behavior for the first year and 1/2 of ownership (2004 HR Vacationer). Since I have been using my time working on other things/issues, I have not studied/learned about slides and their operation (other then keep lubed).
How does the mechanism work - I know, electric motor and gear/tracks - but as far as rollers (if/where) and what keeps the full weight off the carpet - I assume something does because much of the carpet doesn't have a 'slide' impression. But I don't see impressions from rollers in the carpet either.
So what should I be looking for - how is the slide held off the carpet? and is there an adjustment that I can make to change this behavior? And worst of all, is this something to be REALLY worried about?
The fit/seals both in and out appears to be very normal with no issues. Just the at rest while 'in'. And the 5 page 'manual' gives no clues as to how it actually works!
Thanks for any ideas - Steve
