Slide out leaks

New to the forum and glad to have a place to learn!
Just took out first trip with our new 2004 Gulf Stream Crescendo 39ft Pusher and have run across several issues. The one that seems the biggest is our passenger side slide out. If left out when it rains it leaks just about the sink. I was told (sure) when I purchased there were no leaks. Even paid to have Coach inspected prior to purchase. But it does. Was told it wasn't a complicated fix. When I close the slide I looked on top and saw where someone put some "black" stuff on the front seam? The guys at the RV shop told me the way to seal it is to replace the "cloth." Any suggestions? Will post some pics once I slide it back in (we have 2 more days until we leave to come back home.)

Pastordug -

Welcome to the Forum!

Yes, the insulation on slide out does wear out. Usually, it is just a rubber part (not cloth?) that slides in and makes the seal when compressed. I'm not familiar with your MH model, but I'm sure someone here will chime in with the particulars.

When you have time, be sure to update your "signature line" with your information about your MH and anything else that you would like to share so that we know more about you.

Fun and safe camping!

Not sure I completely understand where it's leaking or what has failed. Post the picture I'm sure help is here.

Just getting back from trip. Here are some pics of what I found. Not sure what was put on but it doesn't look good! The slide is "in" and the pic is the top of inside about where the leak is coming from. Thanks again.

It looks like that old roofing tar that never hardens. Is it still soft. That stuff is messy stuff. Good luck

What is the brown loose-looking stuff? It looks like a couple of bats got in there and died.

What I can't believe is a paid someone to do a pre-inspection prior to my purchase......and they could not find this mess? Really?
