Has anybody reattached their slide out seals? After 8 years of use, the gasket (seal) is starting to come loose around the slide out, and if possible, we'd like to reattach it ourselves, if it's possible??

I had the all the slideout gaskets replaced on a Jayco Designer 3710RLTS I used to own. It cost about $1100 to have it done if I remember correctly.

Frank I have replaced the top seals on both my large slides.

Measure the length of the slide and add about 6 inches for trim.

Take an old piece of your seal to your dealer so they can give you the proper replacement.

Let the slide you are working on out about 8 inches.

Remove the old seal - it just clips on.

Clean the area really good.

Start on one end allowing a little overlap of the seal on the end. I sprayed the inside of the new seal with silicone spray as I went along and re-clipped the new seal to the strip by pushing up from the bottom. Once you get the hang of it they go right on.

Trim the excess from each end. Not too short though so they will completely seal when the slide is closed.
