weather sealing slides

Am I being ridiculous to expect to be able to seal our slides from hot/cold weather? I can see light under both our slide floors. What suggestions would you make for rectifying the situation of cold or hot air getting in.

Thanks, CLODHOUSE

Bulb seals are typical but you don't have a signature so I can't really make a specific suggestion since I have no idea whether this is a trailer or a motorhome we are talking about. For winter weather using some form of skirting around the bottom of the rig provides a big improvement. Stopping the drafts will help keep the heat or cool in obviously. Different construction methods will have different sealing requirements. Needless to say you should not see daylight but many rigs have little more than a rubber flap to keep drafts out.

slides weatherproofing

Sorry, I should have added that we have a 40' Rexhall diesel pusher. One slide includes the queen bed and night stands on both sides, the dinning table and sofa. The slide on the other side is same size.
We are considering having the slides resealed. Is it worth it since I can see light under both slides from the inside.
