Fraying Slide Topper

Hi All:

I am a new member and looking forward to some suggestion. We have a 2011 Thor Four Winds Serrano motorhome and the slide topper on the main slide out is fraying slightly near the front edge were it attaches to the side wall of the motorhome. Any thoughts as to a repair to prevent ant further fraying would be appreciated.

That unit is too new for the topper to be fraying that might be covered under warranty though the company

Two possibilities:
The easiest is to use a piece of EternaBond tape on the fray.
The other is to remove the topper, turn it around and reinstall. A 2 foot topper probably has 4 foot of material so the frayed area will "never see daylight" again
