RV Guy;
We have the tape on the kitchen slide of our Sanibel 3600 bunching and pulling off the bottom of the slide. If I trim off the bunched up tape, will this affect my warranty? We are on a seasonal site and hate to miss the rest of the season because of the time the coach will have to spend at the dealer.

07 - not a problem to trim off the excess ON THE BOTTOM. Just cut if off so it partially remains wrapped around the edge of the floor.

Thanks for asking.

Thanks for replying RVGuy! My unit is at the dealer now so I will ask them to provide you with info on my unit and what can be done to prevent this from happening in the future.



Thanks

Thanks to RV Guy and his team, my issue will be handled when my rig visit the dealer soon. They believe the extreme wear on the slide is likely caused by something rubbing against it, screw head etc. I had no doubt at all that Prime Time would stand up and fix the problem. Yet another reason why I am proud to own a Prime Time Product.

The tape is not on the edge. It is 24" in from the edge near the rack gear. There is a second strip by the other rack gear. I don't know why the tape is needed at that area under the floor. Is there a roller there?

Pull back the lower wiper and look to see if you can see a roller? Worth a try.

We have an SP295 surveyor and it has developed this problem. It has been patched with duct tape. Our dealer reccommeded core-plast election signs on the wear areas, fastened with contact cement.
Hope it works.

Sorry I'm a bit late to this issue, but here's my experience:

Our Surveyor 294 had the same problem. The roller was not properly adjusted and loose causing the entire roller assembly to tilt slightly thereby exposing the assembly's sharp metal edge to the slideout floor and tearing the underside material. Fortunately it was covered under warranty. After checking the warranty work I discovered that they did not tighten the roller adjustment lock nut so I tightened it myself. They just black spray painted the underside and we have not noticed any further issues. Needless to say I check the roller adjustment lock nuts every season.

Please keep us posted on how that works. CorrPlast will compress because it is honeycombed and I doubt that contact cement will cause it to stick.

I guess I'm wondering why this isn't an issue on non-Forest River RVs? It's nice to try new methods of construction but does the owner have to be the beta tester? Similarly when Cedar Creek tried using engineered board for the underside of slides and a few years later folks had the edges swelling and wicking water. Sorry to critique but with a manufacturing and engineering background a lot of what occurs in the RV business leaves me wondering... Why?!?
