if your replacing just the slides, get all the materials you are going to need. Then set aside a couple days. Take it slow and methodical. Obviously, you will not open the unit fully, or fasten anything in place to add unnecessary pressure. I can say this enough, have patience and take pictures of different elements/phases of the process of taking the old one off. It should take you only a couple hours to replace the bed slide. However, patience and taking your time and setting aside more time than you need will get the job done.
My first RV was a pop up. I replaced the entire canvass myself, rebuilt and reinforced other aspects of the beds. On other rigs, I have owned, I have rebuilt an entire corner of a cabover portion of a truck camper, and given a 5fth wheel a body and suspension lift for more ground clearance. They are not that hard if you take your time. By the time all was said on done, anyone would be hard pressed to tell if the work was not factory. Time and patience....
Perhaps during the process, you may find a way to reinforce and make the new bedslides stronger.
just my 2cents.
