slide problem or not

2009 Kingston 33sk, the slide with ref, stove and entertainment I keep getting these pieces of hard plastic on the floor when I open it. I suspect its part of the tray that it drops in when fully open. I have looked from inside and outside and I'm not able to see far enough in. I have been watching the carpet and underneath the slide for cuts but, I find none.
I would think the cost of pulling a slide just to look would be outrageous. I'm usually not scared to attempt any task but I'd have to think twice about it. Any suggestions would be great.
thanks

Could be the plastic material has gotten brittle and is breaking up a bit. That's probably the hardest place to check anything unless you remove the slide. If you move the slide in just a little when it first raises up, you may be able to see underneath with a flashlight from the inside and make sure it isn't doing more damage or creating other problems. I don't think you would be able to see much from the outside. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Perhaps a mirror would be helpful when checking this! Our unit has black plastic along the edge of the slide floor.

It sounds like the black plastic edge piece that is right angle rigid plastic at the end walls. It frequently cracks and then pieces fall off. I replaced them on my previous '04 Cruiser. Not that hard to do if you can get the replacement parts. There is no need to remove the slide out. Just remove the aluminum side trim at the bottom of the slide out end walls. Then with the slide open, use a bottle jack and wood blocks to jack up the slide out, just enough to take pressure off floor. Remove the old plastic (breaking it into pieces). The new piece will slip into place from inside the RV. It has double sided tape on it, so remove just a small part of the brown paper first, then from underneath remove the rest. Then re-install the aluminum trim including caulking. A couple hrs work.
