What Does the Slide Ride ON?
I have a 2006 Wildwood 31ft bunkhouse. My living room slide has some water damage in the rear corner and along the side wall to the point the wall is not attached to the floor from the front inside halfway back to the corner. The screws have rusted away and the bottom wall support is obviously rotted. The OSB floor is dark and compromised exactly where the dinette seat is. It is not rotted to the point of flaking but is not strong enough to hold to the floor.
The outside lag bolts are missing where the slide bar attaches to the slide for about 3 feet, I assume they fell out from the bad wood.
In looking at all of this and searching youtube, I am trying to determine what the slide contacts as it moves in and out of the camper. I cannot find any rollers. It appears the black water barrier just slide along the floor.
The only thing I can see is a piece of white teflon looking plastic on the bottom edge of the camper body for the lenght of the slide opening. It seems to be the part the may take the brunt of the load.
I am asking because I am looking for resistance points when the slide moves. I have had to replace the roller gears in each side of the slide arms.
I am getting popping when the slide moves.
What am I missing and where to look next
