slide seal repair

Good day! Yesterday I noticed a water leak in my beadroom slide. I went outside and found that the rear seal in my beadroom slide was not extended correctly. I tried to "flip out" the seal and managed to be successful until about 10 inches from the top when the seal tore. Has anyone repaired a torn seal on their rigs? If so, how and with what products? Thanks for the help.

I have replaced the slide seals on my bedroom slide and the vertical seals on my living room slide. Once you have the replacement seals and a ladder it is not very difficult.

1. Take the metal L trim off that covers the seal and remove the old seal.
2. Be sure the slide is not fully extended, move it back in about 6 inches.
3. Cut the new seal about 6 inches longer than the old seal.
4. Spray Windex on the seals T edge base and slide it into the track, starting at the top and working down, being sure the inner lip is in the track from top to bottom.
5. Cut the bottom edge of the seal to fit as necessary.
6. Replace the metal L trim.
7. Use black silicone caulk on any gaps or holes.

Here is a link to more info:

In the event that you need to replace your slideout seals, This company manufactures the slideout seals used by many RV manufacturers. On their slideout seal page, they have profile drawings of the various size seals.

Joe-K,

That is a good resource. However, none of the seals on their web page match either the single wipe or double wipe seal used by Winnebago on my Itasca Horizon.

Awww Shucks I don't have our Journey anymore and didn't recall what seal style it used.

I found that company's website as when I needed a new piece of slideout seal for our current Tiffin, I matched up the part number. the seal was pretty inexpensive direct from the manufacturer.

I suppose the Winnebago seals might have to come direct from Winnebago

Winnebago Parts - Parts for all Winnebago motorhome makes, models, and years, including Itasca, Rialta, Eurovan - Specializing in the Renault based Winnebago LeSharo, Phasar, and Centauri Motorhomes

In all likelihood, these folks will have the seals you need.
