Slideout seal conditioner

Ok so it sounds like this is a pretty important PM to do on your rv. Does Armor All work for this? The special conditioners to do this seem pricy for no more than what they are.


Or what about the conditioner that I put on the roof... can it be used for seals as well?

303 dries out pretty quickly and Armor all actually dries the rubber out. Use the stuff made for slide seals or nothing at all.

Just keep them clean. The only conditioning the conditioners do is improve the condition of the conditioner manufacturer's profit margin.

I'm one of the many that believe in 303, I've been using it for years. I've also heard that rubbing baby powder on the seals will keep them from sticking which is one of the main reasons they tear.

Ok so I recently applied Premium RV Slide Out Rubber Seal Conditioner and Protectant - 14 oz - Thetford 32778 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000NJ6EZ8..._DUSIDbG4CFH84 to myslide seals. I know from history it makes the slides extend and retract much smoother.

This was the first time on our 5íer. Now the seals donít have enough friction to pull the seal into place. I have to get on a ladder to flip them out. ??!! Really.??? What did I do wrong????

I also use the Thetford Seal Conditioner, and have been very happy with it. Unfortunately I canít answer your question, as Iíve had no problems with it.
The problem I have with 303 is that they recommend that you reapply it every 30-45 days. I prefer something more durable.

I had the same problem on my 2011 Sunnybrook 3510 RE but I was lucky as it was the bottom of the seal that I could reach. I added that to my set-up list. Make sure the slide seals are correct.
