my slide ram is on the floor.
When I took the ram off to repair the hydraulic cylinder I was able to move the slide by hand. I was able to tilt it up where the top of the slide was against the top ceiling and the bottom was about a foot away from the wall.
I could then work on getting the cylinder out. But the floor of my slide was a open frame, with carpet on the floor. So it wasn't like your . I could see the metal supports all inside, with only the foot or so that would actually be outside when the slide was open that I think was square aluminum tubing. How ever it was built, I could move it around, and, it was dry inside of it.
I think you need to determine what is the frame that structurally keeps it all together and moves it in and out. That appears to be a foot off the ground to me. If so, the rusted part is just decoration that should be able to be removed and either cleaned or rust and repainted, or , replaced. It seems to me the problem is standing water that the rusted parts seem to be setting in. My slide is nothing like that and completely dry. Chase down why the water is there and u might find your answers.
