Bedroom slide question

Our bedroom slide has what looks to be a compression crack under the middle of the slide. The crack (actually what may be 2 cracks) is about 4" across and looks to be the width of a support roller.

Can someone with a Sevile take a look and see if you have a similar issue. Also, is the cover under the slide secured with any kind of screw or other fastener? Mine is just secured at the edges and nowhere else.

Thanks

Photos of Seville Bedroom Slide

Here's the pictures under the bedroom slide. You can see what looks to be a 4" track down the middle where a support roller would run. I've tried to look in past the seals and can't so when we get home in April, I guess I need to schedule a visit to Topeka and have them take a look.

Does yours have any kind of fastener under there or just on the edges?

I know of others who had that problems. They sent them a wide aluminum piece to go where those marks are. One for every roller. It solved the problem.

Wow, that is bad. I will look at mine when I get it unwrapped and see if I can see the beginning of an issue

It looks like water incursion, causing the floor to soak it up and warp / droop and scrap across the roller. Look at the colour along the seam?

The rust color suggests the rollers are getting wet. While I thought the actual roller is plastic, some may be steel. Or the plastic has cracked, fallen off and now just the steel frame is left. I also thought the fiberglass skin was glued to the wood substrate, so it is either sagging because the wood has swelled up from moisture or the glue has failed. Can you easily push up on the skin??

Anyway, you have a more serious problem than most other units. The 'normal' problem is just depressions in the fiberglass where it rests on the rollers while the slide is in or out. And the 'normal' fixes are to add more rollers or to add stainless steel plates for the rollers to roll on ( aluminum is too soft). Your unit will need the rust and sagging issues understood and fixed before the 'normal' fixes can be effective.
