The vinyl is playable and curves outward when the slide is retracted. It doesn't interfere with the seals. I rounded the corner of the vinyl on the inside edge to ensure it didn't catch a seal. Only time will really tell. I was going to go an 1/8" below the board, but thought that might not be enough during heavy rains with cross winds.

Help! I contacted service at Forest River (Wildwood, Rialto CA factory). Service rep told me he had never heard of the repair strips for the bottom of the slide but he would "note that I called". Didn't really have any suggestions for repair other than "maybe mylar strips". For those of you who have ordered and received the repair strips, who did you talk to? Do you have a phone number?

to wildwoodtraveler.
These strips are available from Forest River, I would have to look up,
if I still have the order#.
To install them yourself, you have to lift the slide out up a little, slide them
in, glue them on with contact cement.
I will look up the phone and part number tonight, the dealer
should know about this, there's is lots of problems with the underside
of the slides.

Hi wildwoodtraveler,
here it is,
The fix for the damage on the bottom of slide should be fixed with the mod kit from FR:
The part number for the pair of wear strips is Prime Time # 10F16032A.
Hopefully this will fix it when they repair it in the fall.
Let me know if you can get this parts, my dealer ordered them
and installed the parts, I had to reglue one of the strips.
Good Luck

Thank you! I will call the Primetime division to see if they still have the part. The Wildwood division hadn't heard of the problem (so they say). However, on the second message left, a nice fellow by the name of Aaron called me back and said he had seen one fix where they installed the metal rock guard plates in the roller paths. Placed the textured side to face the roller. Loosened the slide track bolts, lifted the slide slightly and slipped the rock guard plate all the way under the roller. They cut the rock guard to fit. At least now I know what should be done. Have an appointment with CW. Then again, maybe my brother-in-law can tackle this project. He is the wizard of all things repairable.

hi wildwoodtraveler again:
These strips supplied by FR, are made of black plastic.
For the big kitchen slide, they are flat pieces, about 3 inches wide,
for the dining slide, they are installed at the edge of the slide and fit slightly
over the edge.
Hope this helps

Hello there again - here's an update on my quest to resolve the problem of the Darco shredding on bottom of my slide out. I have now spoken to Vince at the Indiana facility 574-534-4476. He told me the Wildwoods are made in Indiana, Rialto CA and in Oregon. Each facility has different suppliers and they do not share a common software to research parts. Having said that, the Indiana facility has what I believe are the parts referenced in the quote above. They wrap the side edges of the slide out and measure 2 3/8"x45 1/2"x3/4". The right side is part #90M24263A and the left side is part #90M24264A. They have tape strips for attachment. I think they would need to be screwed down. Probably countersink and use flat head stainless steel screws. I'm going to have my dealer order them. Vince said they were inexpensive (pricing is a secret to customers - go figure).

I still need to resolve the issue of shredding under the rollers as these wear strips don't extend far enough under the trailer. Not sure about the Diamond Plate rock guard suggested by Aaron at the Rialto plant will work. Might be too thick. My quest continues. Just thought I would share the part numbers in case anyone is looking for that solution. If anyone else has ideas, I will be most appreciative.

Just purchased these kits for my 2014 295RST, but haven't installed them yet. My son just bought another brand 5th wheel(not Forrest River related) and they too have the strips already installed. I have to agree with others who have said the PT is entry level (everything except price) The higher up models have fiberglass or plastic sheeting under the slides and are sealed much better. My bedroom slide also has issues with water having leaked onto the particle board underneath and it is now falling apart. Haven't come up with a fix for it yet.

Well this is also happening to our 2016 Prime Time Crusader purchased in May of 2016 sent an email to rkoelndorfer@forestriverinc.com as my unit is till under warranty. I understand the fix is the installation of long plastic type panels seems simple. Would imagine they will want me to take the Crusader into the dealer for me that's the worst part 1 1/2 hrs to drop off 1 1/2 hrs to come home and repeat for pick up such a hassle.

I fix what I can on my own & don't go to the dealer unless I have to. So can someone explain the installation process?

Ask the FR rep to give you the numbers for any approved local RV techs or dealers in your area.
