You can see where the staples are being dragged across the neoprene bar. I have now had 4 new stainless steel strips fabricated. They do not not need screws or anything on the bottom. The sides and rear hold them solid. I will pick the unit up Friday they are done with both slides. This will end my problem. But being out of warranty, the cost to install them is like 180.00 a side for the plastic everytime. I have replaced 5 strips in 3 years. They crack at the 90 degree first then they start to tear your strip up which in turn will tear your seals up. BIG MONEY THEN. The biggest problem then is that water will penetrate that edge without you knowing it then your replacing the slide floor. I will post pictures after I get it back of them installed on the slide. I will also have two sets of the new plastic ones for sale that I got (bought) from FR and made the pattern....
The cut on the side is so clean it looks like someone cut it with a box cutter. The only way to tell is to check each with your hand.
