Slider adjustment

Anyone know how the main slider on a 2014 Seneca works at the floor? Does it have rollers? Looks like it just slides on a angle as it seats down when it goes out . Problem is the lining under the slider is getting torn up and I would like to lift it a little higher up off the floor. I looked at the Power Gear web site but doesn't really say. Thanks

Our '08 is the same and there are no rollers on the main slide and no adjustment for the Power Gear through frame slideouts to compensate for the dragging action.

Thanks for the info. It seems to be a poor set up. I will try to find a fix to make it better

Let us know if you come up with a fix.
Our two previous motorhomes from another brand had adjustable rollers in the floors.

I have a 2017 38rb that has this problem. I wonder how many folks have even looked up at the bottom of their living room slide. If you look under your carpet at the plastic type strip that runs the width of our slide you can see it's held in place with a number of pan head screws, at least that's what is used on mine. My rips on the bottom of my slide out line up with some of these screws. I could see in a couple of cases the head of the screw where the screw driver went in was plugged with material and see the head of the screw was polished because it had been dragging on the floor. You need to clean out the head of the screw before you can use a screw driver to try and tighten the screw. I know some of my screws were not down far enough and coming into contact with the floor. I also replaced some of my screws with flat head screws and made sure they were lower than the top of the plastic strip. I did this last week so I haven't had a chance to see if this is working.

I think it’s called a ware bar. The unit in the video is not the same but i think the application is the same.

I started seeing a tear in my bottom covering and looking inside I found a carpet staple sticking up just enough to snag it when the slide was moving in and out the last foot or so.

Pulled the staple and covered the tear with black gorilla tape and it's not even visible now.

I should have stated that I also have a grove worn into the plywood that matches the head of one of my screws.
