Slide on 8289ws 5th wheel

I was wondering if anyone has had this problem. On a recent road trip the black plastic molding underneath the drivers side slide buckled up and started ripping the metal strip screwed into the slide off with the molding. I duct tapped the metal strip back onto the side and bottom of the slide to make it home. I have an appointment with the dealer to look at this problem, but would like to know if others have had this problem

Yup. We had it repaired when it kept ripping off in chunks and started to take the plywood with it. They put slide slickers on. Cost around $450 total. Mostly labor.
