Slide out plates

Has anyone had the plates for under our slides installed? My 2014 390BH bunk / wardrobe slide became unaligned. Apparently the bottom of the slides are soft wood and the rollers dig into the wood messing the slide alignment up. Randy and his team at FR know about the issue and sent aluminum plates that will mount under my slide to fix the issue. I just dropped the coach off today to get them installed and was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue or the plates installed. Highly recommend looking under all of your slides when the are out and see if they are doing the same as mine.

Jason

Thanks for the heads up Jason. I'll check mine tomorrow.

No, as soon as I mentioned it to Randy he sent them to my local dealer with no questions asked and they are being installed at no cost.

I just looked at mine and the wood where the slides rollers pass looks indented. The slide still looks like it's lined up properly, but it is making a creaking sound when I operate it.

Jason, can you post Randy's number so I can call him?

The way I knew mine was not aligned anymore was by looking at the rubber weather flaps that contact the sides of the slide when opened. My fwd bottom flap overlapped the side a lot but the fwd top one didn't even make contact with the side of the slide. Then it was opposite on the rear of the slide. The top of the slides flap was tight and overlapped but the bottom barely touched the side of the slide. They may have to use two plates on the rear roller to even it out more...

I would tell them you want stainless steel. Alum. could cause black streaks.

Not sure I have that option... Forest River already have the plates pre made due to the known issue. Hopefully they won't be an issue.
