    MORryde Sliding Tray Install

    My 29 X 90 sliding tray will be here Monday. I received the extender kit today which consists of 6 adjustable lifts for the tray. With no instructions included and not seeing the tray itself, I'm wondering how they mount to the slide. Looks like you have to disassemble the extender and bolt it to the bottom of slide tray with the 3 small screws provided. Just wondering if the tray is predrilled to accept these pieces. Once the extender is bolted to tray, it appears you have to set the height needed with the 2 long thru bolts on side of extender. I guess you would set tray into compartment and screw it down with the extenders attached. Looks like 4 screws to each extender base. Anyone done this and are my assumptions right?
    Thanks in advance.

    Frank - when you say "extender", do you mean the floor risers to raise the tray up to get over the lip of the door opening?

    If so, there are a line of holes on each riser (for adjustable height) and a hole in the stationary portion of the tray. Take your time putting them on and get their height right the first time!

    Note too that once you load up the tray, it may push down on the floor. Point being, the hat channel stiffener welded to the bottom of the tray may rub or get stuck on the rubber strip on the bottom of the door opening.

    Trust me on this. Leave another 1/2" clearance between those channels and that rubber strip.

    Re: MORryde Sliding Tray Install

    Jim, after I determine the correct height, can I install the 6 extenders and then load the whole tray into the bay to bolt down? If so, what screws are you attaching the unit to the floor of the basement. I have a 29 3/4" opening and am going to be installing a 29" tray. I need to make sure it clears the sides as well. Thanks in advance.

    Frank - Ive always installed the base in place, then added the tray to it.

    Dont use anything longer than 1 screws into the floor. 5/8 or 3/4 - even better.

    You likely have 2 tanks below that floor

    OK, I think I have it.lol I assemble the extenders (6) to the base and then install the base in the compartment. Then lift the tray into the compartment and put it into track. Are people using the self tapping screws to secure the base?

    Dont use self-tappers in wood. Just use wood screws with square or cross-point heads and drive them in.

    Those are fancy extenders. I was just going to use some 2x2's

    Id rather have no wood on the floor to soak up any water - just in case. Used the risers in the last 2 coaches - worked great.

    And lengths of PEX can slide inside them!

    Re: MORryde Sliding Tray Install

    Thanks Jim. Just like your install. Set the extenders at their lowest position giving me 1/2" of clearance. The 29X90 tray fits my BH3270RS like a glove. Easy install using 1 1/4" X 1/4" wood screws and appropriate washers to control depth. Slides smoothly throughout. Thanks again for the pics and help.
