Torn Slideout Seal

To my surprise and disappointment, the rubber weatherstripping for the kitchen slideout is torn pretty bad. I'm open to suggestions on how to permanently mend it, e.g. what bonding agent to use. It appears that in order to replace the weatherstripping the slideout will have to be removed, and I don't even want to think about that.

Cardsfan...
We have a Monaco and have replaced our seal without removing the box. We havealso seen Monaco do theirs without removing the box.
You can see some photos in this album. You can get a new seal from Uni-Grip. (Just make sure you get the correct length flap for your rig.)

401 Loctite glue will repair the your torn slide seal. I used on my screen door rubber gasket and it has held for about a year and it gets a lot more use then the slide gasket.

I think you will find that if you remove the wood trim around the slide that you will have access to where the weather stripping goes (not great access, but better than removing the whole slide) and can replace the weather stripping. Go with new weather stripping.

Thanks, MKelley. I wil try the 401 Loctite glue. I assume I can get it in Lowe's or Home Depot. To the other respondents, the weatherstripping on my '07 Alpine is the type that is one piece where the fixed end is pressure clamped to the coach wall. All that have seen it agree that the slide would have to be pulled to replace it.

When the slide is pulled in, just feel behind the wood and you find the screws (and there are a lot of them) that need to be undone. You can also see them along the sides when the slide is in.

No screws on my '07, unfortunately. Just a metal base that appears to be pressure-clampted to the coach wall.

Cardsfan,
I got the locktite glue from PLT the people that made the entry and screen doors for Alpine. I would think that it would be available at most hardware stores.

Thanks so much for the info, Mkelley and takepride. I just now read your message as we're camping with no local WiFi service, and it's too late to call them now. I will on Monday. However, I purchased some Loctite super glue gel that says it works on porous materials including rubber. Anyone ever tried it on rubber?

Cardsfan:

I wouldn't necessarily order Loctite from PTL, though you could confirm the glue type/name/number with them. Surely you can find it locally. Of course it's only 564 miles to PTL's front door via Alpine. Just in case you need an excuse.......
