My issue looks like the bottom of the first picture.

The aluminum runners seems like a great idea. Looks like it's just pop-riveted in place?

Yes, it was done with rivets. I also recall that Lance would send the runners out free of charge for the ones outside of Warranty but the owner would be responsible for installing them. I can't find it but I seem to recall it was less then $200 to have them installed by a dealer but a lot the them did it themselves.

Any idea how far back the runners go? Like, I'm not sure how to get past the edge of the slideout...

There are a couple of write ups on the forum from the people who did it on their own, when you get access you can check it out, seems they lifted the slide slightly to get them under. I read when the slide is out, a pry bar is all you need to lift it enough to get the plates in place. Here is a exerpt from one guy who used a bottle jack:

"Well, today I installed the slide runways on our 1885. Start to finish was about 2 hours. That being said, if you are still under warranty you may want to have your dealer do the install as it's a lot of overhead work (a real pain in the a..!) and tough if you wear bifocals. Anyway, it all went fairly smoothly, jacked up the slide with a bottle jack and 2X6's (just enough to slide the aluminum runway over the roller), measured to make sure everything was plumb, drilled the holes and installed the rivets. Checked the roller tightness and ran the slide in and out to check everything."

Here is a pic from the post:

Oh yeah, and they also are using some kind of adhesive along with the rivets.

Man, I can't begin to thank you enough for this. I'm going to just have the service center do it when they pull the slide off.

No Problem, I have learned so much from the forum it nice to be able to give back. And I learned a thing or two from you and your blog... This forum and that Lance forum are full of great people with great advice.
