Couch Slideout 233T
Just purchased this 2005 hybrid and this is my first trailer with a slideout. This slideout has the single center rack, here are my concerns.
1st: When I extended it, I noticed when outside and looking at the underside, that the black fabric on the plywood was wrinkled and hanging because it was being pulled away from the plywood. This was occurring along one edge. I see how the plywood is the contact area for the adjustable double rollers (one set of rollers for each side of the couch). It appears the rollers are used to maintain support on each side of the center rack. I watched the rollers while the slide was moving and notice that one roller was not rolling. This is also on the side of the wrinkled fabric. I was thinking of supporting one half of the slideout with jacks, then remove the double roller assembly to try to fix the bad roller. Has anyone had a similar problem?
2nd: I see the slotted framework that rests on the floor under the center of the couch. I guess this slotted framework is used to tip/adjust the slideout to maintain correct contact with the wall when slid out? My slideout appears to be tipped downward when viewed from outside. So I need to lower the framework to reestablish a level looking slideout, sound correct?
3rd: Where the center rack sits on the wall of the trailer, it is fastened using screws that are longer than the 1-1/2" aluminum square tubing. Two screws are used at this wall connection. Both screws will not tighten, must be stripped. I tried to remove one screw but was unable because there is only 1-1/2" of clearance above the wall. The screws do maintain lateral support. But if I was to actually want to replace them, I may have to remove/lift the framework that the couch sits on. Is lateral support enough?
