Crack under bedroom slide

I know there's a post on, but I can't seem to find it. Has anyone made this repair themselves & where did you get the H trim piece.

We have a FL model that developed stress cracks under both front slides. I made the repair using "H" channel trim that I purchased from Lowe's. I'll go over the steps of the repair with you if you need them.

Well with the great DYI pictures & step by step from Grizzby, I repaired the crack that had just started u,ser my bedroom slide. Fortunately it was heading straight down & was only about half way to the bottom.
I still have some caulking to do & a better paint job, but it was not too bad of a job.
Thanks again to Grizzby!!

How about posting the DIY pics?! I may do mine as a preventative measure like they should have been to begin with.

After getting the excellent instructions and photos from Grizzby I checked my RW thinking I did not have a problem. Wrong! A crack had just stared under my bedroom slide. I have put the H channel in per Grizzby's instructions. Only have some caulking to do . Thanks again Grizzby.

Maybe Grizzby could post them on here for everyone? Wish I were closer as I bought 8' of the H trim & used about 8", but shipping cost would be more than the whole piece.
