Hmmmm when was your production date?
looking from the front to the rear mine has double wheels on the left and single on the right.... both tracks.
I would say there is a good amount of grip on most of the screws, but the last one seems less solid. I think I am going to change that screw to a #10 (from the installed #8s) and add one just behind trolley at it's furthest point in. HD did not have the #2 square screw heads, so I just bought some of the phillips self tapping screws that are otherwise identical minus dab of white paint.
I was also planning to poke one of the holes with a paperclip or something metal to see if it is going into metal or wood behind that ceiling panel.
I think you are right to do the washers as soon as possible. I might have waited too long and that is why I will likely buy new rails. I used 2 of the small packs of 1/4" x 1" fender washers from HD. That was enough to do all the screws I can reach when the slide is out. Those washers are thin enough for the wheels to roll under.
Production date, hmmm? I cannot say I know that, but mine is a 2011 model year. I will have to check the sticker for the date, but not in this lightning storm
I still think the way the trolleys were is weird and that goes double if yours are the opposite way. In my mind at least, they two trolleys should be mirror images of each other. I don't see any particular reason for any directional necessity with the trolley or track so there may be no engineering reason at all. Just weird looking I guess.
