Well last fall had a leak in the slideout. Dealer said the window seal was bad and fixed. Ok so camper was put away for winter. Well open it up to get it ready for 1st outing at the end of april floor is soaked we are not happy campers. Anyway brought it in and was told we'll give it the water test to find the problem. I asked didn't you do that in the fall? You had it for three weeks didn't you test it? No response. So now its all better so they say. New 3in. slide seal and new D seal. One thing I did notice is when the slide is almost all the way out it seems to drop down a little. It's apparent they did some adjusting to it also because it didn't drop before. I'll call them tommorrow to ask to talk to someone that accually worked on it. How does everyone elses slides work do they drop a little when almost fully extended? I'm still a rookie at this slide out thing and am curious. Thanks Ed

If it's a flush floor slideout, what you describe sounds normal. The slideout is raised to keep it from dragging on the carpet/flooring during its travel and then drops to flush at full extension. The process is reversed when the slideout is pulled in.

Let us know about the leak. Chances are the slideout seal took care of it. Did they check the floor for water damage?

Make sure you everything in writing about what they checked and found because if later on down the road you find th efloor squishy near the leak then you will have your evidece that they did not really check it out as they stated and you should get it fixed under warranty even if the warranty is out.
