Sabre main slideout tearing floor

well, we continue to have issues with our 2014 Sabre 5th wheel, 32BHOK.
we picked it up in April and have been using it pretty regular. Each trip has exposed more and more problems.
Today when we packed up to go home we put the main slide in like usual.
No problems, nothing out of the ordinary. when we got home we put the slide out and the one end of the slide left a 12 inch long tear in the linoleum!
You could see where the slide wheel/wheels had put so much down pressure on the linoleum that it was squished and left a jagged tear in it. As of right now only the end is doing it. Does this mean the slide itself is out of adjustment? or just the wheel/roller assembly?

I have a 2015 3250 Sanibel, only been out one time, the main slide started to dig into the floor, made a bump in the floor, the whole slides makes a bang ones it goes out about 4 inches and keeps on going after that. Check you bottom of the slide, mine is torn up in spots.
Needless to say the trailer is back at the dealership for repair, hopefully it's not there for weeks on end.

Yes your slide is out of adjustment. I have been through many many slide out issues with my Sabre 34REQS. My slides were so far out of alignment it trip my slide seals, pulled my window seals out, caused a questionable water leak and dragged on the carpet. Get it to your dealer to confirm and maybe ask for a factory fix.
