Bedroom Slide Floor Replacement

Hello All

Has anyone taken on the task of replacing the floor on bedroom slide on a 2013 36RE.

Facing the bed right side have noticed the floor on the underside of the slide sagging. Seems water is getting in some way and for some time, as the floor is very soft.

Looks as though the water entering the unit is being trapped underneath the plastic material located on the underside of the slide. Drilled a small hole in this material and water came out.

Trying to located the source of the leak has not been successful either.

The first screw up the exterior of the slide have no signs of moisture, yet the screws on the underside are rusted.

Without removing the walls I see no signs of water damage on the inside walls either. There is no signs of mildew entering the unit.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

There has been issues of this happening when the caulking of the 4" trim piece on the outside at the bottom of the slide cracks and allows moisture in. It has no where to go but into the floor of the slide

Check the 4 " trim piece at the bottom of the slide on the outside. If it is cracked it will allow water to come in and can only go to the floor of the slide allowing the wood to get wet and rot

Friends had both slides of their Front Livingroom with that problem, and that's where the water was coming in, on the top side of that 4" Trim piece.
Their's went to the Service Center where they pulled both slides to replace the floor.
There is a U Tube around that details step-by-step how it can be done.

Thanks for the info.

I had a Redwood dealer quote this with a price tag of 9K. Indications are the slide has to be removed. Is this reasonable or out to lunch.

The bad thing about it is by the time these things are noticed the damage is already done.

I've seen some U-tube videos but I've not come upon one with Schwintek bedroom slide system.

If you could point me in the right direction that would be great.

Thanks, Gerard
