New unit carpet problem

Just took delivery of new 317RLOK. When the slide is retracted on the driver side the edge of the slide carpet pushes up against the center island. The carpet is about 1 1/2" too long. When the slide is opened the edge of the carpet remains curled up. I have yet to return to the dealer - has anyone else experienced this?

Pretty sure this is normal. If you would trim that carpet; when you put the slideout out, you would see bare flooring under slidout. Pictures would be good.

When you bring it in just curl the carpet under, the curl will be less when extended and as the carpet ages it will tend to lay flater.

This is standard on all with the island kitchen. As others have said, carpet will flatten out when slide is open. Stand on it once open to help it sit down.

It's sort of an easy fix ( at least for me maybe ) but if this bothered me I would unscrew the island and move it the 1-1/2" back and see if that works. I bet you wouldn't even notice that 1-1/2" adjustment. If it's like I do cabinets I first put in my floor blocks 2x4 then place my cabinet over the front & rear blocks and screw thru the toe kick to hold it down.

Now if it's been repositioned and you still have that problem then you should be able to make that one toe kick deeper by moving that floor brace in and cutting back that toe kick.
