Saw comments by Roadglide & others (thanks) on this forum. I doubt if glue/silicon etc well stick to darco but something will as it's used on the UMHW tape. need to contact 3M & Soudal if any of their products will work.

Any chance you would reveal the name of your local supplier? It would be much easier to deal with company that understands requirements when given them instead of a big box store.

Yikes!! Shipping will kill me. I'll just find that stuff on my side of the world.
I suppose "strategically" placed countersunk toggle bolts would help mount the UMHW strips to the slide bottom.

Here is a link to a supplier. They are who I talked to before I had mine fixed and who I referred the dealership to so I assume they used them.

I didn't go with the UMHW tape as the Darco scuffing etc looked like it's under a lot of stress & thought it might tear of & rip the Darco with it
The smaller Bedroom slide underside is covered with a different surface that the 3 rollers run on. However it is lifting in places - no problem yet.....
If your OSB seems soft, you have a much bigger problem. Water is being absorbed at the end of the slide. The ends are usually protected by a metal strip but that has to be silicone sealed or eternabond taped for 100% water tight seal otherwise the OSB gets wet.
