What do these strips cost? Does the lip just fit under metal slide strips and bottom run in with slide over the slip strip? Thanks for info.

We got ours no charge thru the dealer contacting PT on our behalf - long story but we are paying a mobile rv service to come to our house for install

Easy to install with peal-and-stick adhesive and then silicone the side edges, just under the side trim. Since these are relatively thin, no adjustment to the slideout is needed. I put about 24" wide section at each end and then about a 30" wide section under the frig. Slides smooth and easy, since the strips are UHMW polyethylene, same stuff as the slide bar.

We are lucky that we discovered this problem before the floor got wet and rotted out. There are thousands of owners who will not realize the problem until they need thousands $$ of repairs. Has anyone thought about a class action lawsuit. This could be really big, with thousands of rigs affected. Does anyone know a lawyer willing to take this on?
This looks like a great repair-anyone else used it?

I spoke with Dawn prime time last week in regards to the tearing darco wrap on our 2016 prime time Crusader that still under warranty. Since she’s new to this position within the company she wasn’t aware of this particular problem. Dawn did a bit of research and PT will be sending me what they call a pair of slide slickers. Apparently, the part numbers listed here in the forum have changed once I have the parts in hand I will post the part numbers.

During my conversation with Dawn, I advised her of this particular thread with over 107,000 views she looked it up referencing what I was referring to in regards to the damaged area. Quite frankly I don’t even think PrimeTime has produced hundred and 107K units so having 107K hits is interesting indeed.

There are several other way to repair this problem. The thread is long and sifting thru all the posts is time consuming. Thought I would post a couple of links to the wear strips and the part #
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I posted this under slide outs without any feedback from anyone.
So I thought I would post it here.
This is the underneath side of my fridge / tv slide out on our 2014 Lacrosse 323rst.
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.

slide slickers are NOT what is installed on the bottom of the slideout to cover the wear and protect it in the future


slide slickers are like plastic skis that are laid on the floor inside when you run the slide in - the slide is supposed to roll on top of these and it only serves to protect the carpet or linoleum inside - DOES NOT SOLVE OR REPAIR THE UNDERSIDE TEARING OF THE DARCO


Tell her you want the slide wear repair strips NOT slide slickers

Did she give you any dimensions for the slide slickers? What size slide are you doing?

Just got my unit back a few weeks ago from some warranty work/adjustments. I had the same issue with my slides. I was told that it was happening because the fabric was too loose so they tightened it. Now I think it is worse than before.

Planning on calling them back to inform them. However, might wait now and see what this part is and maybe request that be installed instead.

So great information in this thread!

I've attached a few pictures, not great as it is hard to really get a good picture without crawling under the slide. I can't wait for the kit to be installed on curb side slide. On that slide I will use a slide slicker on the carpet to help protect it as well.
These were installed over the side trip piece? Anyone have better photos of them installed?

Yes, I do not want slide slickers.
I am working on an item called a slide ski. My slide is about 36" in depth - 2016 Crusader 260 RLD couch and eating area slide. If it doesnt pan out there are several fixes posted that look excellent. Thanks to all posters. Steve

I am wondering if PT has had a recent change in staff. Several of the people many of us have dealt with are no longer with PT. It's really too bad that they are not at least informing incoming staff to the common issues.

Anyone can look at the damage and see clearly that it is caused by the darco fabric rubbing on the wear bars and tearing.

I have my own 'slide slickers', I just use some hobby board, about 1/16" thick. I lay 2 pieces down; one near the back area around the fireplace and one near the front corner. I mainly do it to help with the wear on the carpet from the slide.

The only REAL solution is to have the plastic pieces installed on the slides. Well over a year since mine was done and the problem is 100% gone.

I have decided to use strips under my slide like prior poster did. Pictures from prior poster. The 6" corner strips will barely touch under slide floor on my unit. I want to slightly elevate the slide bottom to stop it fom rubbing on the Darco material.Click image for larger version

Received the parts from PT thought it would be simple to install but it looks like a PITA to be honest. Will take my rig to the dealer for install since it's under warranty. One end has a ramp the other is flat no installation instructions provided.

The angled end goes toward the inside of the slide. I can see mine on the inside cause it's starting to slip and is "peeking" out from under the slide corner inside.
