Cut Floor

Over the past couple of years we have noticed a few small indentions in the floor under where the slide out is during travel. I have always figured that a rock or something is between the two. We try to make sure that nothing is there before we close the slide and we usually vacuum before bringing the slide in. This weekend we opened it up after we got it home and I have about a 2.5" cut/indention in the floor. I crawled under the slide and it is on the under side of the slide in the same spot. Have not been able to find anything that did it but I guess it could have came out when the slide was ran out. Anyway, almost makes you sick to see stuff get messed up when you try to keep things nice. Does anyone have any tips or pointers to keep this from happening? This is on flush slide system. Very little or no clearance.

Did it look anything like this?


Mine was caused by the slide digging into the rollers that it rides on.

I had a RV repair shop add aluminum runners under the slideout.

No, nothing like that. I'll take some pictures later today and post them.

Here is what the floor and under the slide looks like. There are a few other very small spots or scratches in this general area. It is located directly above the wheels. I suspect that a rock is getting in the slide/seal area and getting caught on the way back in.
