Trim problem

Hi Everyone
We have a problem with the trim strip under the curbside middle slide out on our Tuscany 4055. Every so often when we put the slide out the trim strip sticks to the rubber seal at bottom. Uaually after storing in hot weather.
What can we put on the rubber to help stop this. I have been able to reattach it by using a rubber mallet and tapping the trim back in place .
Thanks
Ray

are you talking about the rubber bulb seal thing that is attached to the slides lower trim?
if so use a small amount of PAM sprayed on a rag and wipe the seal, it wont stick.
or turtle wax tire dressing works good to
