Is that solution not rubbing into the carpet and/or lino in the kitchen?

Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene

irishrv
We use this stuff at work and its real tough! I had thought about this as a option as well but hesitated in doing so. I came so close to using this stuff! Here at work , it does wear some but so does everything else around it.

Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene sheet has exceptionally high abrasion and impact resistance properties. It will outwear all other materials, including metals, nylons, urethanes, and fluoroplastics. In corrosion resistance, it has the same qualities of other polyethylenes. The working temp range is from -60 to 200 deg F. Because it resists wear, friction and corrosion, it cuts maintenance costs, energy consumption, and extends equipment life. Its properties include: low coefficient of friction, self-lubrication, non-adherent surface, FDA and USDA concurrence for contact with foods, drugs, etc. Use mechanical fasteners in construction.

My only concern with the uhmw is that it may be tougher then the wear bar???. I would hone/chamfer the corners on the uhmw and keep a close eye on things. Like screw heads, seals and wear bar abrasion.

Do keep us posted please on how it works out.

Tech said he has applied this fix on many brands and never a comeback. No contact with flooring or carpet but he did adjust the slides. Apparently the lippert factory wear bar for the slide is made of the same material. Found it on line at lippert store.

irishrv,
My Crusader is in the shop and PT will not alter the design to fix the problem. I will likely do the same mod after they repair the Darco tape. What thickness is the UHMW plastic? I was thinking 3/16" will work and using glue or lock-tite on the screwed to prevent them from backing out. I was also considering covering the entire bottom; a little pricey, but maybe worth the expense. elastics.com sells the UHMW and a self adhesive thin version called Slick Strips.
Thanks for the info and the pics.

I'm not sure about thickness. I'd guess 3/16. I'm not advising anyone do this as I wouldn't have because of the slide adjustment involved. The tech had both slides out for the install. I'm saying my dealer and a VERY SMART tech made this work for me.
