Tuscany 4056 0r 4055 slide room

so after nearly ten years the front couch slide always bothered me with the 1/4" plate they bolted to the bottom of the slide for the seat belts, it causes a jump and bump of the slide each time ti has to jump up the 1/4" right before its in.
I have been looking for a solution that is LIGHT and easily replaced if it breaks
well you are going to laugh, but i found the outdoor ceiling fan generic plastic blades to fit the bill

they are long and yet only 8" wide
i put these three in to smooth out the roll and BAM its smooth as silk, no more BUMP JUMP
yes the blades are modified a bit and do fit between the rollers and the bottom of the slide

all the other slides i made alum runners for the rollers, but this one always gave me fits because of the 1/4" plate.
