National Tropical main slide roller replacement
Has anyone replaced the roller under the fridge on the galley in a 396 2008 tropical / if so do you have to hyper extend the slide to do so
not sure if i have a alignment issue or a bad roller under the fridge? need help thanks
the other rollers look good but cannot tell under the fridge

Might be worth checking the carriage bolts first to see if they have loosened off from the rail mounting plate, and caused the slide to dip to one side. Otherwise it sounds likely the roller is bad or the floor of the slide itself has sagged for some reason. I Think you may have to unbolt the slide room from the rails, with it 3/4 of the way out, and tilt it upward from the inside to see underneath, not sure would be any other way to get access?

thats what i was thinking have you ever unbolted the slide and done that?
notice only one bolt holds the slide in place from the height adjustment It does seam to come in and out ok that makes me think it is the gear plates in front that need to be adjusted but not sure would like to know if i can tip the slide up and check or do i have to remove it or and hyper extend it only
thanks again for the quick answer

I have unbolted adjusted the bedroom slide on mine in the past, which is smaller and easier. You will be able to loosen it so it drops, but not sure it will be enough to get a look underneath,depends on where it currently sits on the mounting plates, you'd just have to try it. Of course you'll need a jack to adjust and hold it in the proper location before you tighten it back up. If you were to completely unbolt it from the rails, with a jack on either end I would think you could tilt it enough to change out the wheel.
