2013 1904 Bed slide plastic coming out.

On the slide when pulling out the bed, there is a thin piece of black plastic that the bed slide slides on. (I think there's one on the top and bottom inside the slider)

Anyway, that piece started coming out when I pull the bed out. I end up having to either use a hammer (carefully) and tap it back in. Then I had my wife pull it slowly out as I put pressure on it with a screwdriver to keep it in the slide.

What keeps that greasy piece of plastic from coming out?

I can't wait to hear the answer to your question, I've got the same problem with mine.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

I don't know how to do pics, but I'll try to describe it. each of the 4 bed sides have a black plastic strip in their tracks. the 2 rollers in each track push up trough the strip. the black strip is cut around the rollers so they can do their thing and roll. the black strips are about 1" wide and run the length of the roller channel. For some reason as you slide your bed ends in, the slide is catching the black strip and pushing out of its channel. I can't get mine to push back in. I just got my camper and used it last week. this problem came up when we torn it down at the campground sunday. I set it up when I got home and noticed 2 black strips had pushed out of the track about 8". Gave up trying to get them in, and figured I'd post the problem, then I saw 2 other guys had the same thing going on.

Just a follow up, I wondering if when I'm outside pushing in the beds, I slightly lift up on the bed ends so they don't rub on the 2 outside support bars, when I do that it may cause the bed slide front end to push down on the track bottom where those strips are. which may be whats pushing them out of the track. I would never have noticed the strips, if I hadn't seen them hanging off the end of the tracks, so I can see why you might be having a problem understanding what the problem is.

Strange, I wasn't planning on popping ours up for a while, we're heading out after the 4th for a week so I'll have to check mine out.

I do know what you're talking about now though just never noticed mine moving. The front bunk starts to push in a little hard maybe it's that thing? but after the first foot or so it glides right in...back bunk is smooth all the way.
I'll be keeping an eye on the thread just in case it happens to us too.

Sorry I don't have any advice, well other than if you can I would let the dealer fix it...don't know about the OP but you just picked yours up a couple months ago right CJ?

Okay, so you guys made me pop mine up partway to show you since there is so much good discussion on this topic.

In the picture I am showing the slide on the left-hand side looking at the trailer from the hitch side. It is the piece of plastic on the top and I usually end up using a screwdriver to hold it in as I am sliding out the bed.

Wow, yeah mine isn't doing anything like that!

maybe to little to late but have ya guys lubed up the rails with anything? I hit mine with some dry lube (and the risers too) wonder if that saved me?

Yep that's it, but mine is the black strip on the bottom. I didn't even look to see if the rails had strips on the top, but I guess they do. Now the bottom ones are harder to push in because the two plastic rollers are there on each end. where each roller is there is a rectangle cut out so the roller can work. whats happened to mine is the cut out is not around the roller and the plastic strip is on the roller. the cut out is hanging out of the track like your top piece is that you are showing. this makes it even harder to get it back in, well impossible I should say. Yes gruss01 I have sprayed my tracks and rollers, I did have one roller on the far end of the track turning hard, its loose now.
