I really hope so because 3 out of 4 of my slides are doing it.

Found some very thin aluminum approx. 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" angle used for roof edging at Home Depot. Pull the bottom trim back and inserted it under the trip and re-installed the screws. Used ProFlex clear polyurethane sealant along the top of the trim and the horizontal edge. If you use a sealant, be sure to wipe with Acetone or other solvent or the sealant won't adhere. I wonder how the Rustoleum Black LeakSeal in the aerosol can would work?

Doesn't do a lot for the worn areas but it will protect the edges.

First post. We have a 2014 245bhs TE. DW loves it-enough said. The underside of the slide is wearing along the outer edges. It appears to me that the slide base rollers have been placed too close to the edge of the room on ours causing the excess wear. Will wait and see what PrimeTime comes up with for repair. Bought it in June and been camping twice. I have pictures just haven't figured out how to post those yet.

I have the same problem brought it to the dealer who placed a black 6" strip over the damaged barrier which made things worse, the tape started rolling back and stuck to carpet, which destroyed the carpet, now I've got black marks and glue from barrier in my carpet! It looks like everyone with the cable slides are having this problem!This is just one of many problems with our trailer! I figure at this point the only fix is to get a different trailer! And not a [primetime]!

Dont look good. we are all waiting here on this tread for a fix from primetime.
If you look back in this thread there is a possible fix with a part number I posted. It could help you with yours or just wait for a pt fix. But I assume your out of warranty. Im guessing future prime times will have a different slide bottom.

When I first started visiting this forum RV Guy was a frequent poster and provided help between FR and us. He seems have become silent now that some some serious issues are cropping up. The slide wear is a serious issue that can cause water to penetrate the underside and create rot.

IMO, the material on the underside was a poor choice and does not provide adequate water protection under the best of circumstances and a solution will be difficult to achieve. It would have been far better to put a hard type plastic that was impervious to water under the slides. Any future rigs I buy will not have the same material as my current rig has.

I will never buy another unit with under side slide-outs like this ever!
Prime time (Rv Guy and Rick) assured me they will come up with a fix!
IMO I cant see any unit with this material on it not having a problem. Recall???
