Prevent slide out streaks on your RV carpet

Slide out rooms make RVs larger inside but they can sometimes leave streaks on the carpet. The streaks come from the rollers and and the weight of the slide out on the carpet surface. You can prevent streaking by using "Slide-Out Slicker" by Lippert Components. These carpet protectors have teeth to hold them in place on the carpet while the slide moves over the smooth top surface. Once the slide out room is extended you can pick them up and store them under the sofa until you need them again. You can find more information on this product here: Lippert Components. Replacing the carpet can get expensive while the Slide-Out Slicker is an inexpensive safeguard at around $20. Keeping my eye out for slick new RV products. Jim Twamley, Professor of RVing

  • I've seen them and I like the idea. It's just that they are about the same width as the rollers and as such the slide weight is still on the same area. Don't see how it could help that much.

  • We made our own several years ago by cutting down a chair mat like is often used in offices at desks. They are clear and smooth with small teeth on the back to grip the carpeting. The entire chair mat cost less than $10 at an office store and it's big enough to make several strips any size you want.
