We have a CF28RL. When you bring your living room slide in does it "settle down" close to the floor or do you have a gap between the slide floorand the kitchen floor? How much distance, if any,is there between the kitchen floor and the slide floor?

I believe you are suppose to have a gap. I do not recommend walking on the slide while its "IN". I knocked mine out of wack the first time and had to manually put back out to get it lined up again. Learned to stay off the slidessince then.

I agree with Virginia RVers. I have about a 1/2" gap when the slide is in and try not to walk on it.

I have about an inch between the slides and floor when in and we don't walk on them.

We have a 28 CK it has about half inch gap I cut three boards inch and a half wide 3 feet long slide under slide. Walk on it all the time for the last 5 years no problem yet. We sit on the sofa when we have lunch when traveling.

We have about 3/4 in. space when the slide is in.
Like threeputt, I put a couple boards under the leading edge when it's in. That seems to support it just fine. I have no fear of walking on it when supported like that. Shouldn't be any different then when it's extended and that leading edge is resting on the floor.
