Bed slide Mods

I know someone has or has investigated it. The bed in our 34RSBS is weak. I am about 280 pounds and hear the bed creek and moan at every little movement. On the last travel trailer[2014 248 RBS] we had to redo the bed platform. I feel it needs 5/8 plywood and retraced in a couple of places. HAs anyone done this on on a slide? DO you have any pictures?
Thanks for the help

On the head of the bed they usually don't put support legs under the cross member, they just install screws, which makes the wood move under weight conditions. Just experiment with it till the sound is gone. Silicone helps also.
