I think I found the correct replacement below. Do you all carry a spare or just hope they don't fail? I have lost confidence in this unit and don't want it to fail in the middle of nowhere.
What do you mean by “failed”? It looks intact. Seized up or what?
Forest River can supply stainless steel plates that sit between the roller and the slide or you can get them manufactured locally. They distribute the weight better and if you have a roller failure the stainless steel will help,protect the slide bottom.
