Slide toppers, Carefree Summit System
I am looking for anyone who has/had a rig with the Carefree Summit slide topper system. The Summit is a rafter that lifts when the slide is extended, causing the topper to have a bit of a peak in the middle. The desired result is to aid water drainage.
My coach has this system on 3 of the four slides. I am in the process of replacing all my topper fabric and have done two slides. As I am working on the largest slide, I now notice that the rafter system does allow the outward part of the topper to drain well. However, the rafter also causes water to drain backward toward the coach on the inward part of the topper. On at least one of my recently replaced toppers, there are puddles of water standing on that inward portion.
I understand Carefree discontinued this system in later years, maybe because of this issue.
So, I am wondering if anyone has removed the system and, if so, did it resolve the issue?
