Anyone tell me what this might be?

Every time I put my slide out after traveling with my trailer for a few miles I find these little shavings on the floor. Look like drill shavings from drilling holes, sometimes a small amount, sometimes a lot. No grinding noises or anything when the slide goes in and out. This is on a 2015 Cruise Lite T252RLXL TRAVEL TRAILER. If I put the slide in and out while parked I don't see any of these, only after driving on the road.

If there is an overhead AC vent then possibly they are falling out of the vent, landing on the floor & then ending up under the edge of the slide. We've had a similar problem but mostly with wood shavings, not metal. The shavings are left in the vent system during the manufacturing process I suspect. We get fewer each time we are out.

Hope you get it figured out.

look like router shavings from construction. probably got caught in the rolled carpet under edge of slide? they get shook loose while traveling, then exposed when slide goes out. no harm unless they begin to gouge vinyl...

Do those pieces appear to be styrofoam? "Lefty59" is correct that styrofoam could be falling from the in-roof ductwork for your A/C. Or-there just could be a styrofoam panel built into the bottom of your slide and some of this is being rubbed off by something.
