Slide shoe

I am new to owning an rv and I purchased a 1999 adventure. The previous owner replaced old carpet with vinyl floor. He did not do gray job and cut carpet at slide and now I have two issues. 1) the slide shoe is for carpet not vinyl and making marks and 2) some of the carpet under slide is bunching up and stuff. If there anyway anyone would know to replace shoe and get old carpet out from under.

Welcome aboard!

When we removed the carpet from our "new to us" Journey, we extended the slides fully. At that point there was only about 4 inches of floor that we could not reach. We mfg'd a chisel from a length of 1/8 x 2 inch x 24 inch flat bar (from hdwr store) and used that to reach under the slide to knock out the carpet nailer, worry out the staples, and scrape out the carpet backing. When we laid the tile, we used the same tool, with a piece of 2x4 as a fulcrum, to reach under the slide to firmly press down the new tiles. Then with the slide still fully extended, we drove staples through the new tiles as close to the slide as the nose of our stapler would allow. You won't see them unless you look, and they will prevent the tiles from slipping out beneath the slide (because tile cement never really hardens).

Our slides do not touch the floor tiles, but our EZ Rest sofa bed had hard plastic rollers that marred the tile. We replaced them with neoprene wheels. Justincase, we put one of those self adhesive 4 inch diameter teflon furniture sliders at each corner of the slide. You don't see them, they are underneath.
