That is what I have and what AZ has. His not only bent it tore. It might have the bend to help stiffen but it is way to thin. I bet if u look inside with ur slide open the side trims are touching the wall from the top down to about two feet from the floor. Than u will find a gap. The walls of the Rv are actually just slightly bowing out trying to support the slide weight so that is why the trim is flush until you get about two feet above the floor. I have six rollers and they should of put an outrigger under each one

Got a good opportunity to crawl around under my unit today to take a better look at all of this. I have three "outriggers" on my 377RLBH, and all three have the 1" bottom return, which seems to be an indication of greater strength (based on everyone else's reports. I did see the staples holding the sheet metal protection to the underside of the wheel well, and I can see how moisture could be entering there. I will seal them with some silicone.

I wasn't able to tell how many rollers I have. How do you see that?

Is there any indication when Jayco stopped using the flat outriggers, and switched to the outriggers with the bottom return? The mfgr date on my weight sticker says 11/15. I know that it got to the dealer the first or second week of November.....

I looked at all of mine on my 338 rets and they are same but none are bent on any of my slides so that's a good thing .... my kitchen slide I am sure is the heaviest of the three and they are all still straight

Fire Instructor, pull down the rubber flap seal that is touching the bottom of the slide and you can see the rollers behind it.

I think your build date is around the time they switched. Mine was July 15. Another two came to my dealer about a month after mine and they are the same. Then they got 6 more much later and they are like yours.
I even saw a 377 with a mix of old and new, whereas the 377 beside it has all new style.

Also with the slide full open u can see an indentation in the tyvec black covering. Follow those to the seal pull down an there r the rollers. My two aft outrigger bottom bend are at 90 degrees. My forward outrigger the bottom stiffener bend is about 70 degrees. Being a metal smith the weight is flexing that thin outrigger and after tine it will bend. Every roller should have a thicker outrigger under it. On my trip I will be at my camp for seven weeks. When I level all my jacks will be on wood and cement pads. So after I level I will be putting a 2x4 under the kitchen slide with two screw supports under. Everyone says do not do that if u get a flat u will push up on the slide. With all six jacks down which are electric and cannot bleed down u can let the air out of the tires and the FW stays put. Until my outriggers are built up I will be using supports

So what is the solution to "beef then up"?

Simply weld a thicker plate to them?

It is a simple fix. Just make a flat piece the length of the outrigger about six inches wide and weld the bottom web to it. Than weld that Assy to the frame. Make four all plate steel. Does not need to be bolted to floor like the ones now. Jayco needs to do a recall fix. If I was out of warranty I would go to a weld shop and those guys would cut it and weld it and fix it. Our problem under warranty is if anything happens to frame or slide they will say u modified have a good day. When I get back from my summer trip even if mine are not bent I will be calling Jayco to request that they beef up my brackets before they bend.

I'm having a problem picturing that in my head... but I'm sure my local weld shop can/will make sense of it.

Just look at the outrigger u have. Tell them to make the same out of plate steel but make the top wider say six inches. Than just place it up against the floor and weld it to the frame. Have them put a support under it so it will be pushing on the floor just tightly. So when u extend the slide the floor does not bend down. A good weld shop will fix u right

Taking our 36FBTS to a local weld shop Friday for an estimate to repair and add supports under the kitchen slide- with Jayco's ok. It took a bit, but I kept after them and with the help of another forum members info I got Jayco to ok this. Now I just have to hope they ok the estimate in a timely manner.
