It's only happening on one side. Is there a way to adjust the slide out?
Inside the camper, the pieces under the cabinet which are covered with carpet will come off. The screws (square drive) are buried in the carpet, but not too hard to find. Once you remove this "valance" you will be able to see the gears, the motor, and the rollers at each end. The problem, IIRC, is not caused by the roller, but by some kind of plastic shield in front of the roller. I'm not entirely sure why the shield is there, it does nothing to protect anything. I ended up removing the (white) plastic pieces at each end of the slide a couple years ago. Have not seen any ill effects and no more damage to the liner under the slide.
You don't really want to start adjusting the slide height. If you get it out of square, leaking gaskets will be the least of your worries.
