Vinyl gutter covers from home depot. $3 each. Just a little trimming and I think will work great. I already used these at the wear spots, now I'm going to do the corners.

M109Rrider, what are you using to fasten the vinyl gutter covers to the underside? Please post pics when they are in place. Thanks!

It worked good. I cut the top lip off leaving the vinyl "L" shaped. I removed the bottom trim on the wall ends and re screwed the piece back on with the vinyl underneath. Caulked the trim pieces and used a couple small counter sinking screws on the bottom to hold the the other end. I'll take pics later and post. I'm happy with it.

How's the gutter look like it is going to hold up? I'm trying to decide between stainless steel door kickplates or the plastic gutters.

Slides have been run in and out several times. Think it will hold up good

Anybody else see a slide wear like this?
Looking for info and help with this. Dealer puts more tape on it and adjust it but that is wearing too. They have also changed the small corner wipers.
Prime time is unresponsive to the pictures I sent that they have asked for!
Under that black layer of plastic fabric is a white layer of more plastic , thin boarding looks like cardboard and then Styrofoam.
The tape they have put on is now wearing too.
Prime time needs a wear strip or use Masonite down there. My neighbor has the same unit and his underside looks like crap compared to mine.
Looking to fix this before it becomes a bigger problem.

I have a 2015 3250 Sanibel with the same problem. The bottom seal is bad where the wear marks are and the slide does not work right either.
Right now the trailer is at the dealer for repair.
I looking forward to see what they are going to do about.
Quality control at Forest River is bad and they should improve it fast
How you get your trailer fixed up.

Such a simple fix with the strips, mind boggling this is still a issue.

The slide wear kit has been 100% perfect on my rig. No more issues at all. Very pleased.

Forest River seem to have this probl all across their production line, one would think they would wake up and fix it it ones and for all right from the factory. It must cost them a small fortune to pay the dealers to repair this. If Forest River has to much money at hand, let's reduce the cost of the trailers.
Forest River, you want satisfied customers, let's get your act together and produce quality products.
My trailer is a 3250 Sanibel model 2015, the same problem, one of many others.

Our camper is back in the shop for the 5th time to fix this. I'm having the issue on my kitchen slide, bathroom slide and bedroom slide. I told the to install a aluminum plate on the bottom of my bathroom and bedroom slide and that would fix the issue on those slides. Prime Time ok'ed that repair. Will post pics with I get my camper back. They have to fix the slide problem, replace a outside wall on kitchen slide and repaint front cap so it will take some time to get my camper back.

It looks like a screw head or something is hitting it as it slides but so far its only on the king size slide right below the outside fridge
