I have one of my slides whose top cover is sagging. It rolls up fine when the slide goes in but droops when out and collects water. Can it be tightened by a DIYer or is it a shop fix? TIA

What brand slipe topper do you have? Many of them do collect water, there are a few new ones out there that have worked on this. Let me know what brand and I will see if I can help you.

i had the same small problem,,we cured it by blowing a single air matress up and sliding it between the canopy and the roof and it works great .. just remember to remove when you slide it in..

Have to admit mine does that too. Sags when it gets rain water accumulated. I just thought that was normal, it run off as the slide is put in and cover rolls back up.

That is what they normally do. When weighed down with water the material stretches. When it dries it usually binds back up somewhat. I take a few cheap basket balls and put them up there. It helps.

Ours has the same problem but I am not compalining because the benefits of the A&E topper far outway any sag from rain water.
