FW slide damaging floor

Brought home our new 3 with full wall slide and opened up the slide to get started on cleaning. When the slide extended we noticed places on the flooring bunched up in a hump and permanent roller marks embedded in the flooring right beside the hump. My first guess is, I have 2 rollers that are scooting across the flooring instead of rolling and that is what pushes the flooring up in a hump. Assuming it is rollers Any one know if the rollers are adjustable? Maybe just needs WD40? Need to figure it out before the floor is ruined in 2 places, if not to late. Hoping flooring will lay back down and markings will smooth out. Anyone have this problem? Suggestions? Thanks

Pictures? We weren't running rollers, but carpeted "skis" or glide bars. They are there, just to prevent the slide from tipping down when in the stored position. Also take a look at the outside rollers, make sure non are tipped or catching the rubber slide seal.

We had this same problem on ours. The floor is not perfectly flat and the frame moulding around the inside of the slide fits a bit too tight to the floor. It catches in some spots as the slide is taken in & out. I took a multi-tool with a wood blade and trimmed aprox 1/4" from the bottom edge. Seems to have done the trick.

This is serious stuff. We had the identical issue on our 2008 Carriage Royals International, neither Carriage nor the dealer was willing to fix it, we were given a 12" x 36" piece of puckboard to throw under the slide in that particular area every time we pulled the slide in and it still put a dent in the floor over time.

No worries TN Ranger. Shoot me your VIN and contact info if you haven't already and I'll make a note in the file. It shouldn't get any worse, it's just the roller or carpet glide pushing the Lino. We can get it repaired when you have some down time.
