Big difference between those two designs. Those pictures give more information than anything that I've found on Lippert's site! Thanks

GBFANKEN, is correct, the black marks are caused by the black wiper strip on the front and side of the counter. We had the 2 rollers installed by the Junction city factory, they are installed on the slide itself not on the peninsula, which floats over the floor. I believe the rollers help the huge slide operate with less stress but the it did not fix the black mark problem.
To fix the problem you need to pull that wiper off and reattach it with an 1/8" clearance from the floor or just leave it off like I did. (For now anyway). I also used a few tyraps to secure the million electrical lines that are under that peninsula. Winnebago to there credit makes access to this area easy as the floor panels just lift out.

I have a friend with a less than one year old late 2017 model or early 2018 model Sightseer 33c with the Slim Rack and she still gets the black mark on the floor from the wiper, the wiper still is touching the floor and transfering black to the floor. It comes right off with black streak remover or any reasonably strong floor cleaner.

Sam, I ended up removing the black wiper strip because the rest of the slideout near the stove area doesn't have anything under it, so what's the point! I too tye rapped the wires, hoses "lightly " under the peninsula. I ADD FELT strips to where the rubber wipers were. If the peninsula RUBS on my tiled floor, the felt should help protect my floor ! ?? We'll see next week's trip. FYI I also upgraded my Inverter to a 2,000 watt PURE SINE WAVE. I use lots of electronics and I feel safer with Pure Sine Wave power. 1k was enough power, however while I was going to upgrade ? Why not go to 2k right away. I already have solar.....

Haven't noticed any problems to date with our 2012 33C, similar to posts for 2010 and 2011 33C
