Exterior Slide Out Seal

I have had a continuing problem with the exterior seals on our 2013 Arctic Fox 27-5L. The seals never seem to come all the way to the extended position, they only come maybe 1/3 to 1/2 out. The top one is the biggest pain. Is there a easy solution to this, maybe some type of lubricant? In the photo you can see the top portion is still tucked in. I can get my hand under the seal and sort untuck it but am just looking for a simpler way.

A non-skid strip was used on mine. Grabs it and flips it out.

I have the same problem on my AF. My seal worked fine until I got the bright idea to give the slideout sidewalls a good coat of wax, made the surface too slick to "grab" the rubber seal. I tried dewaxing it with some DX330, which helped a little.....
