Slide seals

Anyone ever do maintenance on the slides UNDER the slide? Not as important but could cause probs if go bad. I clean and treat mine and look for debris annually.

Oh yes, top, bottom, sides, inside and out.
Out, every other month.
Inside, twice a year.
Use 303 Protectant only.
5 year old Lexington, 3 slides, seals still as good as new.

I think mine is some type of pressed wood, like plywood.

I wasn't referring to the floor under the slide.... Actually attached to the underneath of the slide is some gray material, perhaps to protect the plywood subfloor?

On my Flagstaff slides, they are made of HDPE Poly Board.
