Actually, when the slide is pulled in, the slide floor is suspended over the trailer floor about 1 3/4 inches. It's this gap between the floors, that allows the slide floor to become separated from slide wall, when too much weight is applied to it.
You can check my pics here, to see where the suspended slide floor separated from the slide wall, and went all the way down to the trailer floor (which it's not supposed to do)
