Getting ready to purchase some "preventative" UHWM sheet before my Mpontana is delivered, and I found a source with 48" long option. Curious if 36" is long enough for all of our slides, and is it wise to do this to all slide bottoms? Need a length for a 3120, if anyone has measured theirs.

Absolutely fantastic PDF Chuck! Ordered the UHMW on eBay in the 36" length x three sheets for dinette and kitchen slides on our MHC 330RL. Came in two days.
The PDF makes a great parts list and tools needed. Appreciate your effort.

Sorry it took so long, but I have uploaded ChuckS' PDF on "Darco Slide Out Bottom Cover Repair" to the MOC Files section in the Miscellaneous Documents category. Here is a link to it.

Hopefully this will save ChuckS some time and effort and enable members access to the excellent document much quicker.

Our dealer (RV Corral in Eugene, Oregon)!installed a product they called “Slick Slide” or “Slide Slick” to the bottom of each side of the slide. It is a polished stainless steel plate with a slight flange on the outer side edge and a “ramp” section on the interior leading edge. Seems to be working well so far. Charged us about $250 for the install, which was worth it to me to avoid the hassle of DIY.

Replacing the floor on my 165 inch kitchen slide. Wouldn't have believed it but the slide surface attached to the floor frame was just 3/16 thick wall board used in RVs. No wonder that fabric is fraying. I'll be using 7/16 strand board to sandwich the floor frame.
