Garage/storage slide

Purchased a Mor Ride slide for the storage area on our 38GK. Is there any problem drilling and fastening to the floor in the underbelly?

Assume your talking about the flooring in the basement - check for the location of the water tank.

Just use short screws. When I mounted the real for the power cord I believe I used 5/8 in screws without a problem. I think the decking is 5/8.

Good luck with it...
on our last 5er, we had the slide and 9 times out of 10 it got in the way more than helped, but we had to have one since we had a 'two-story basement' where the sub basement was below the slide tray....

Now, I will say we aren't full timers, so maybe that will help but not us....

I got a 36"x6' this leaves me room down one side to stack additional items and the slide is wide enough for the large totes. It also gives me room at the other end by the tank controls to put a small tote for the drain hose and additional hoses. I'll post pictures later today. Fits in perfect and looks like it will work great. Thanks for the help on the floor and screw sizes.
