Water Damage-Bedroom Slides

I have a 2015 Carriage, by Crossroads. It is model 40RL and it is virtually the same unit as a Redwood 38RL. The bedroom slides are cable operated, not Schwintek. The plywood flooring got wet and rotted out. Our rv repairman is having getting the replacement plastic covering that the rollers slide on (it is broken and must be replaced). Do the Redwood units use that same plastic sheeting under the bedroom slides? Keystone claims it is a very old trailer and they don't have parts for it. The local dealers don't want to tackle the job. So, right now, I'm stuck until we can find that plastic sheeting.

I would think you could get by without it. Use plywood instead of OSB board. Then use a good paint or sealer. Maybe a marine coating.

Bull, question for you: Do you have an external wiper seal on the bottom side of that slide?? We have a very early 2016 39MB and we don't have an external wiper seal, and if the wind is blowing the rain in the right direction we get a damp floor in the corners of the bed slide, plus I can see day light in the corners. I've taken to wedging a section of old 5/8" hose up in there.
I've looked at new units and they don't have an external wiper, but the slide opening is beveled upwards to keep water from running inside.

I've replaced the bedroom slide with Baltic Birch plywood and applied several coats of marine grade black paint. Installed aluminum plates for rollers to run on rather than directly on the plywood surface. Tried to source out this material with no luck. Any water that happens to leak by the trims silicone just gets trapped inside this plastic covering.

Nice Job, I agree the sheet of PVC seams to trap water and cause a bigger issue. I have a small spot on My RL-38 that I have been keeping a close eye on. I had a piece of trim letting water behind it and getting in the wall. currently the area is about 5" where its soft and hasn't got any bigger in a year. having a slide topper that was as wide as the roof would have help stop the issue. For what ever reason the slide toppers on our unit are 1-2" shorter then the roof , Not sure if its factory or dealer but I am replacing them one every year so the water runs past the roof and onto the ground.
