Hawkeye, do you happen to have some contact info on the parts dept. My 2012 360 fws is experiencing some issues also. I need to do what you have done. Thanks for posting

Slide Plate Installation

RodneyD, I spoke with Andy Thompson in the Parts Dept. He knew of the problem and arranged for the plates and screws to be shipped to me at no cost. Installation is on us. The number I have for him is 574-522-1747.

By the way, I installed them on the FWS last week. All went well, and the slide moves much smoother and easier now. No more underside damage where the rollers rest when the slide is closed.

If you need anything else, let me know.

Thanks Hawkeye, the aluminum pads look awesome. I bet they help a lot. Mine started to sag causing the base boards to rub around the frig, I noticed the plastic pad were getting chewed up by the rollers. Thanks for posting..

Thanks
Rodney

I have a 2014 39BH-60 and sprayed the slides with "slide-lube" yesterday. I noticed the rollers under the slides and also sprayed them. Should I investigate adding these plates for my rollers? No problems yet, but wondering?

Has anyone installed these plates on later units?

Regards,
Fred

Even though I don't own a M/H it would be wise to install the plates. Why you ask the slides are heavy and what holds that weight is the neo rollers, so all the weight is concentrated on that roller, It will take a toll on the underside.
The plates help disperses the weight over the whole floor area instead of just the one resting point of the roller, Plus the added bonus is the easier movement and less strain on your slides bringing them in and out. I had 4 made out of S/S 16 ga. and replaced the cheap plastic ones on the edges of my two slides I was replacing them every year just crazy. Now with the metal ones installed over two years ago I have never looked back...

For those folks that installed the pates on their own, how did you jack up the slide...or did you? Thanks for your replies.

Used the same method using 2x4" with another one on top. There is a picture of how this is done on a earlier FR Berskhire thread. Really was pretty easy, but you have to jackup slide just over 1/8" or you won't get the plates in.
