Yea I can see where the lower one would be worse.
I figure the tip of this is going to suffer from me tapping back in each time. At some point take it in unless someone here knowing a solution.

It wouldn't be practicable for me to take it back to the dealer, besides mine is 2nd hand, so what I did to fix it was to push it in as far as I could I cut the rest off, took the roller off and then recut the slot where the roller goes, then reinstalled the roller. the portion where the back roller is doesn't have the plastic now. I then pushed my bunks in a couple of times and they slide in with no problem, they don't catch where the plastic is cut shorter. I'm not sure what the long term effects will be with about 4" of the track missing, but unless I wanted to disassembly the whole bunk unit there was no way to get it back in place. Just wonder what is causing the problem. Also it seems unusual that this problem happened to 3 people this past week and I haven't seen it posted in the past. Must be something in the air.

Mine came out on one track and the dealer said just leave it out. I can say that it appears to have no difference in the sliding of the bed in/out, and no matter what I did, it did not want to stay in the track.
The other track and the tracks on the other bed still have their little plastic strip. But like I said, it appears to make no difference.

thanks f5moad, that's what I was wondering. After I shortened 2 of mine, and sliding in both bed ends there was no difference. I was wondering over time if it was going to cause some wear in the tracks. I will say reinstalling the rollers is tricky. Keeping the nuts inside the track lined up while putting the roller and bolt in place. Finally got smart and used a box end wrench to hold the nut in place.

I'm thinking of hitting with a spot of hot glue between the plastic and aluminum slide..

I'm wondering if it would hold it in without damaging anything and being removable in the future. Still can't figure what holds it in normally.

On my camper, one of the black strips was missing when I bought it. I keep the slides lubed and have had no problems with the slides on the bunk ends.

I'm still having this issue with the slide and the slide is lubricated. Hopefully since it's a year later (no other posts of similar problems), if someone has the issue and has corrected it, you can fill me in with a solution.

Message #8 has photos of the slide in question.

For now I use a screwdriver to push on it as I pull the bed out.

It's been over a year, and the bed without the one piece of plastic slides easier than the other bed!

Wow f5moad, you brought this thread out of the deep freeze!Anyways where I have shortened mine there has been no problem. Like you said in post #13, not having the plastic strips in place doesn't seem to make a difference. Not sure why they are even there in the 1st place. Maybe the manufacture could save millions by not putting them in.
