How long is that slide.

I have a 2013 390RB and while I don't have any deep depressions in the slide bottoms from the rollers, my dinette slide does protrude about 1/2 to 5/8 in at the forward and aft bottom corners. The bottom center of my dinette slide actually makes contact with the body of the motorhome so maybe my slide frame is warped also. It's not a huge issue since I have no leaks...just seems like it ought to fit better.

Mine is an RB also. From what I remember from looking underneath , I think those plates would only work on the kitchen side. I was planning on calling Randy for some other things I'm going to ask about the slide plates for the RB.

Here are the pics of the plates installed

I just noticed there are not any rubber flaps across to keep the bugs out?
I was looking at my 2014 390RB and had to pull the flap back to see the rollers.

On that slide, the rubber flap is behind the rollers. All the other slides, the flap covers the rollers up. Not sure why that one is different.

Not on my 2013 390RB. It's on the outside and covers the rollers up. That particular seal did not fit very well on motorhome so I fabricated a different one that does a much better job of sealing the bottom on that slide. The original allowed a lot of outside air infiltration.

Was the replacement the same as the original? By that I mean is it a wiper seal? If not could you post a pic of the new seal?

No3putt: Are there more than 1 bedroom slide on your floorplan? If so which one was replaced and a picture of that would be of interest too.

We have bed slide and dresser side, bed side on drivers side. Will post picture when the weather get above freezing and snow melts a bit. Snowing right now, should be in TX with Phil and not in CO. It's a wiper type seal, have them on all four slides.

Do not own a MH, but one of my slides have the same rollers. All the geared slides have a wiper outside, but the small one with the roller it is attached inside. Which I found surprising.

3putt,
I had the same thing on my '08. Seems that they changed things and stopped putting the wiper seal on the bunk slide a year or 2 ago. I don't like the idea of the bottom of the slide 'open' like that without any type of 'protection' from the weather and bugs.

I just went and checked my slide with the rollers. The sweeper is inside the unit not on the outside, so there is still a seal from bugs and water and the elements. But Please remember mine is NOT a MH, all I can say is that's how they designed that slide on a Rockwood. I would think they wouldn't leave that space open on any unit, BUT again this is FR.....

On my 14 390BH, it does have a rubber sweep seal on the bunk slide, but it is behind the rollers. All the other slides have the seal in front of the rollers. Not sure why that one is different

Spoke with Randy this morning about my slide alignment issue. He stated that he'd rather have FR do the fix at the plant. Hopefully we'll be able to get the coach up there to get it right. More to follow.

Two years ago, my bunk slide was depositing aluminum shavings on the inside floor. The shavings culprit was found to be the bunk floor indenting, which caused the internal weather seal with its aluminum binder to scrape,

Randy authorized the repair which included removing the bunk slide and for a total of 19 hrs. labor. When it came time to do the repair, FR gulped on the 19 hrs. and instead, the internal seal was fished out and an external rubber flap seal was installed. FR sent five heavy duty steel plates, but Lazydays said that was a lot of weight and not needed. So far, almost two years later, all is good.

I am not sure what kind of bottom seal, FR is using now.

Just an update. Randy has not given me an answer on the slide plates at all. Having trouble getting email responses back.
