Tip out repairs.

The plastic on the bottom of my 08 Monaco Cayman tip out is damaged. How hard is it to replace it? Does the tip out have to be removed to do it? There is no damage to the wood under the plastic sheathing. And should I replace all my seals while I'm at it?

I have also just discovered some roller wear on the underside of our 2005 Holiday Rambler bedroom slide. I have heard of a company that makes stainless runners for the rollers to ride on, but can't remember the name. If anyone could provide that info, it would be much appreciated!

Post in the Monaco forum for faster response. Also list your coach in your signature. The slide can be repaired without removing the slide.

I installed Guardian Plates on my coach last year.

I found working with Chris an excellent experience.

Per "adamfolger," you can ask the moderators to move this thread to the Monaco forum. Click on the triangular white-and-red exclamation point "sign" in the yellow area to the left of each post. That will open up a box where you can make the request of them.

I had problems as well... actually found a couple of screws that attach the coach mounted glide had broken and backed out... thus the damage... I purchased some UHMW, (ultra high molecular weight) plastic in 3/8" thickness... made a group of strips, 4" wide by the length of the slide... I counter sank some holes and mounted these strips... oh I'm guessing 16" to 18" apart across the bottom of the slide... I had to bevel the edge where it met the edge of the slide and ran across the glide mounted on the body... made sure that where the existing plastic sheeting was damaged, it was sealed and covered by one of the strips... BTW the guide in the bottom of the coach is made of the same material and it makes an excellent glide...

I made sure that the slide could sit 3/8" higher when closed... the slide now moves more easily (less friction).. the total cost was about $150. The only other repair my coffee buddy, (mechanical engineer) could come up with was to remove the slide, and replace the plastic sheeting... my project is now 3 years old.. and gets inspection each spring and fall before we leave to travel..
