Ceramic and slide issues...

I have a 1999 Airstream Cutter with a single slide. The flooring is carpet and ceramic. The ceramic is in the galley. Can someone explain how these slides work? On the couch (carpeted) side of the slide I can see the “fixed” rollers mounted on the subfloor. Would this be the same as the galley side?

The floor in the galley is a little high (for some reason) and when I let the slide it is binding (on something) pretty bad. I’m in the process of removing the ceramic (several pieces cracked) to check the subfloor…not sure how I’ll remove the tile close to the cabinets.

Anyway, any advice is certainly appreciated.

Steve

The first question would be. Is the ceramic original equipment?

Hi Dave,

I have read many of your post and enjoyed learning from your experience and knowledge!

Yes, the ceramic is OEM installed....man is it a pain to remove.

Thanks,
Steve

I have never even been around a unit with a slide so I have no further input for you. Let us know what you find.

The floor mounted roller will be the same on each side. The "other" design has the roller inverted and mounted to the slide base.

Here is a thread about a trailer adjustment which has basically the same design:

Thanks much for the info and thread link!

When I let the slide out (hydraulic) it seems to "catch" on something...making a popping sound when it turns loose...not sure yet but will continue to investigate. Of course I have left the slide out until I can determine the cause. I found your thread you attached very informative...I will be investigating this as well. I was finally able to pull the seal (outside) down enough to get a pretty good glimpse of the rollers...I didn't see any issue or obstruction.

Thanks again!

Steve

Loud popping noise - more like a loud bang as the slide "broke free" on mine was actually the top corner of the slide tucking under the top corner of the body opening a the ram pushed the bottom out.

Adjusted the slide 1/8" lower and no more noise
