Heard from Randy via email. We are currently coordinating traveling to the factory in June.

To those who have had the slide plates installed, do you know what needs to be done to install the plates? Is it a big job?
Thanks

Tom, I thought I would get to watch my dealer install the plates, but they couldn't do it the day I brought the moho. I'll find out from them when I go get it.

But just looking at the job, it looks like they will be able to jack the slide up slightly and just slide the plates over the rollers and under the plywood, then screw them in place.

Per Randy, Campin Cajun is correct. Randy thinks it's sometime that can be done by someone that is handy.

Tom, my plates are coming next week. I plan to install myself. I figured beforehand to jack the slide up ever so slightly (say 3/16") with the slide all the way out. This was confirmed by FR. Will figure out the jack points, one or two jacks, etc., experimentally. However, any members experiences are welcomed. I will let everyone know how it went.

Thought I would add pictures of mine on a 390RB Kitchen Slide.

United RV in Fort Worth installed my plates. They said that they called FR and got instructions on how to do it.
It did involve jacking the slides up slightly as you have mentioned.

If anyone gets installation instructions from FR could you please post them on the forum.

Hey guys, is this a problem specific to the 390BH. I've got a 390FL and haven't noticed any issues, but have not really checked.

Inquiring minds want to know what is complicated about the installation?

I don't think so. I've got a 390RB and have some indications. Emailed Randy and he has told me to keep an eye on the roller tracks. I have and have recently seen the aft most roller on my kitchen slide (14 ft slide) deepen and have requested the plates.

edgewant, I believe if you would place a 2x4 on top of the jack under the plywood that would give sufficient support while installing the plates.

Cajun:

I was looking for instructions from FR so that I can do it "by the book". I don't want anything to become an issue down the road should some other defect on this slide become apparent.

I'll try to find out when I go pick up my Berk, if I ever get to pick it up. Going on two weeks now that they have it.
