Hi Folks,
just opened up my trailer after a long winter season and it seems that the black seals aroung my slide out are pulling away from the frame as the slide moves in and out. Question, are these easy enough to replace by myself or is this a trip into the shop for repair? If anyone has the knowledge can they walk me through replacement?

Thanks
jim

Jim,
I had the same problem with one of mine as well and went to dealer and he cut me a piece off a lon roll the right length. Slid the slide out about 6 inches sprayed the slit on the seal with silicone spray, and using only my hands was able to snap the new seal properly onto the slide frame lip. Took me a few trys to figure it out but once I got it going it was a snap. Cost me about $40 for the new seal. Make sure you take a piece of your old seal to your dealer so you can get the right type. If the rig is under warranty get them to do it by all means. It's about an hours work. Hope this helps.

Hi Don,
Thanks for the reply. Are you talking about the seal that protects the slide out when it is all the ways out (the long black flaps around the slide out) or the seal when it is closed up tight against the body of the trailer?

Jim

Jim I was refering to the black slide seals on the outside that surround the slide opening and are mounted to a flange on the trailer not on the slide. There is a top one and one on each side and they overlap in the corners.
