Help need to replace slide seal

I have a 99 holiday rambler endeavor. It has one slide on the drivers side and it has a sofa and stove and sink in the slide, I need to reseal the slide and could use any advise I can get on replacing the seal. I don't know were to buy the seal and what all needs to be done to remove the slide. I have a lift truck that I think is big enough to lift out the slide and all the tools needed but since this is my first time doing this any help I can get from someone who has done it before would be a great help.

I have no idea how your slide seals are accessed for replacement. I just had my slide seals replaced and it was done with the slide extended and all work from the outside. If I remember correctly, I think the slide was only partially extended. The job took one worker about 5 hours to complete and that included minor adjustments to the slide hardware.

Your question comes at the right time! I just finished replacing the inner slide seal on my 99 Monaco LaPalma which I believe is pretty much identical to your Holiday Rambler. I was lucky enough to find the part number from Monaco and by chance I searched the internet and found the company that made the seal for Monaco. After matching the part number with theirs, I ordered the seal directly from the company (it's sold by the foot) and installed it myself with assistance from my nephew. We did it in about 2 1/2 hours without removing the slide. We used ordinary hand tools (putty knife and screwdriver) and it went in fairly easy. It is a somewhat tedious job which you need to push and tug the new seal with your fingers until it goes in to the right depth. We found that by prying open the metal inside the new seal a little bit; it went in easier. I will try to locate the name of the company and the part number I used and will pm that info to you.

Thanks mister jim that is good news that it can be done without taking out the side. You are correct when you said the monico is the same as mine. I have been inside a Monico about the same year as my Hollidy and it was the same slid I have. Thanksm again for the info and I will start
digging around for a place to buy the seal.

Thanks MisterJim for all the great info. I have ordered the seal and it was the same part # that you used. I hope I am not being a pain in the butt.
I would like to ask one more Question. Beside the seal running up and down at each end of the slide there is a white foam or sponge like material that i beleave is also a seal of some sort.Did you replace that seal also? Mine is getting very dry and is starting to break up plus it also leave a stain on the paint below it. Well as I said Thanks for the come back Im glad you did or I would have the slide sitting on the ground for no reason.

We didn't see any white sponge like material on our coach. Just the black rubber seal which was pretty well dried out and in desperate need of replacement. The seals are also available in white rubber as well as black. Maybe your coach had a white seal and you are seeing remnants of that??
Can you post a picture and maybe we can figure it out.
