I, I have a 2006 Alfa See Ya 5th wheel. The living room
I have a 2006 Alfa See Ya 5th wheel. The living room slideout is 17 ft. X 4.5 ft. It started putting a groove on each end of the carpet. Then it got to the point where it was catching and wouldn't come with me on the outside lifting and rocking to get it up over what ever it was catching on. I took it to a RV repair shop and had to replace the carpet. After putting the slideout in and out about five times, I notice that the carpet is starting to pull away and tearing on the outside edge. You see the tear when the sideout is extended all the way out. It is catching on the carpet when it first comes up and over the outer edge. When I went to pick up the trailor when they first made the repairs, when I got it home we wanted to see how the new carpet looked. Put the slideout out but when I went to bring it in, it tried to come in but could get up over the hump. Had to take it back. After they worked on it the second time, the slideout came in and out but now I have the tear starting about the wheels. Any solution? … read more
