Does anyone have a recent update on the slide wear issue, our six month old crusader 295rst is showing the same type of wear on the edges as other people are seeing. Iwas thinking about maybe trying a strip of nylon .016 thick x 2 inch wide since nylon is a good friction reducer might need a little thicker due to weight. Hopefully primetime has a fix better than tape.

After the adjustment to mine, the wearing seems to be slowing, and/or stopping. PT sent me a roll of darco tape which I will use on the edges. We will see.

Considering the silence from anyone with Forest River or Prime Time I think they are playing the waiting game until we all give up.

What "silence" are you referring to?? RV Guy from PTM gave a very good description of what they were seeing and working on. I'm sure you would like to see a solution in a week so you could then complain about a lack of quality.

These things take time. Be patient. Be happy that you have an RV where the company is actually working to resolve your problems instead of ignoring you.

I understand they are taking each case individually.
I myself haven't seen a good fix yet from pt or seen any post from pt in months on this. Working on a fix ??? Tape fabric and sealant.that's what I read here. My tape fix is wearing threw. Gonna have to do it next year again or opt for something else.
Have to take my unit back in a few weeks. I will ask my dealer to talk to pt again.
The people at prime time I've talked to have been great but I would like to see a good fix.

Just picked up our trailer from our dealer, General RV. They installed plastic wear strips under both sides of the slideout. At this time it looks like it may be a good fix.

Which General Rv location is your dealership? Ours is in Brownstown, MI & I'm hoping it's the same dealer so they already know of the problem & the fix they did to your unit. Looks good!

That is the same that comes on the Rockwood, It works well, I had one torn up by staples that were to high, had it replaced no problem since.
