Those are 16 ga. because we did not want to use screws to hold them up on the bottom. There is a bead of caulk about an 1" in from the inside edge on the glide top side for water protection then it go's under the back 90 degree edge installed from the factory and is re screwed on the sides only the stiffness of the gauge holds it up tight. If I was to do it again I would do it out of 18 ga, 20 ga might not hold up on it's own with out rippling. I think 18 ga would be stong enough but 16 ga. not much different but stronger. The slides runs very smooth in and out. It was a copy of the Majestic plastic with the welding on the inside corner to form the 45 degree. So the whole out side bottom and sides are smooth, can't catch anything. It is tight against the bottom, no flex at all in the movement. We will see how it works out. So far so good we ran it in and out at least 30 times. I thank Trevor from Australia for the idea.

underside of slide is wearing

I have a 2014 Sanibel 3551 and the seal under the refrigerator slide is worn very badly and the slide roller that rides on the linoleum floor is making the linoleum wavy. I will take to dealer next month so they can address issue ( I hope ). I think the residential refrigerator to to heavy for the slide and Prime Time did not compensate for the weight.

It really should pick up and not roll on your floor, To me they have the slide adjusted wrong. There are two adjustments one is height and one is tilt. It sounds to me the tilt is off. It should not run on the rug or floor. At Least the electric ones. I have adjusted mine over and over until I got it to seal and hold a piece of paper in the sealed position, and it's a good 1/4" above the floor when brought in....Hope that helps you....

Under Slides

Just noticed that under all my slides there is a black coding this is coming off were the rollers are riding. Is this something to worry about and if so how to fix it?

Don't expect Prime Time to assist you. They are more apt to ignore you and your problem

Take pictures, document the heck out of it as well. They 'may' suggest adjusting the slides, this won't fix this. Just to be sure your issue is the same, post some pics.

Be very careful that water does not get to the bottom of the slide. The material is MDF and will soak water up like a sponge and will swell up. That material has got to be the worse possible material available.

Go back to the beginning of this thread and read the response of RV Guy where he says they have not had any issues and said they were using different materials. Obviously he was not telling the truth. If it was my rig I would get rid of it as quickly as possible.
