Slide Gaskets

Ref: 2002 36' FDDS Alpine Coach

Does anyone know who supplied the slide gaskets to WRV, or the manufacturers of the gaskets?

Can they be replaced without removing the slides?

Unigrip has a large selection depending on which seal has failed. However it appears that WRV installed the seals before the slide unit was installed so it is very difficult to replace them. One member did get his replaced so you may want to search previous threads on this. The most common issue is with the wiper that tears away but you can live with this. As long as you fully extend the slide the compression seals are all you need and these don't normally fail.

I had all the gaskets replaced on mine a couple of months ago at Redlands Truck and RV (Calif and I see you are from Texas). You could call and talk to Chris about where they were able to get mine. I know that one of them took three different vendors to locate the correct ones. They did not have to remove the slide. As you would expect, it is not a cheap job.

When the top of my wiper blade pulled out of the mounting I spent a long time checking how it was fitted. There is no way this could be reinstalled as original without removing the slide but that is not to say an alternative method could not be found. I decided I could live without the top 2 feet and just cut it off. Have not had a leak in the last 2 years. Interestingly I did the Newmar factory tour and watched them install the seals on a Dutch Star. They did this after the slide had been installed and had been through the paint shop. Would not be difficult to replace the seals on one of these coaches.
