36' Land Yacht Kitchen Slide Problems

I have an '03 Land Yacht XC 365 (36') DP with a large couch/kitchen slide and a smaller bedroom slide. So when I opened the couch/kitchen slide this week, it went part way out, then "Bang" then the rest of the way out. (See pictures) After it was out, I found a white plastic strip (about 4" x 12") on the carpet sticking out under the couch drawer, this had never shown before. It's obviously a glide strip of some sort. I went outside and looked up under the slide and see three areas where this strip is glued or bonded to the underside of the slide (outside). The front one strip has come off and plywood is exposed.
What's in between the bottom of the slide and the top of the floor? I am afraid to think that the slide will have to be removed to repair this. Can I slide a larger piece of plastic or metal in between the floor and the bottom of the slide to allow it to glide? I am afraid to move it back in for fear something on the floor under the slide will scrape / gouge the plywood floor. Anybody with any ideas?
