I see this was covered years ago but can’t find anything recently..

I noticed tonight that the bottom nylon (or whatever it is) bushing on the main slide of our 2006 34H has a big piece missing from it, and I found it on top of the slide out bay. Years ago there was much discussion on another forum but the thread has been kind of hacked up over the years. Has anyone changed these themselves, and if so is this procedure documented anywhere (hopefully with pictures)?

pix attached
Thanks!!

Those are at end of life :whistle:. We have probably chatted about the glides but I don't remember any DIY write-up here. One of mine had a longitudinal crack but factory service thought they were fine for the time being. Probably should have had them replaced just because.

Well… Grrrr…. I guess i’ll go back over and wake that thread up and see who comes out if the woodwork? It appears to have been done, but all the pix were apparently lost when they migrated servers

On mine there were 2 wood screws that attached them to the floor. When I redid the carpet the screw heads were covered from the nylon sluffing off. You should be able to do them from inside with no real problem.

These are the glide plates that rest inside of the square steel channel that the entire slide rests and slides on. All work is done externally under the slide. It doesn’t look like it will be allot of fun but I have seen some posts 9-10 years ago talking about it. I wonder why not since?

I had mine replaced at the HWH factory last summer. I took 2 men x 6hours for one slide and they new what they were doing. Its not as easy as it looks.
