303 on slide seals?

Putting our Bay Star in hibernation for the Winter. Is it ok to plug 303 on the slide seals? If not, what is good?

TIA

I used 303 on my rubber seals and it kept them like new.

AND...the easiest way is to spray it on those cheap foam paint brushes, then paint it on the seals, and everything else rubber on the coach. Twice a year if in a high sun zone.

I haven’t figured out how to get all of the top seal on the big slide. I taped a clean rag that had been soaked in 303 to the longest pole I had, and after reaching as far as I could in from both ends, I have about 2’ section that I can’t reach. I can’t go from the top because of the slide topper. Suggestions?

Buy 303 by the gallon. It doesn’t go bad and it’s much cheaper. Use a spray bottle from Home Depot or Lowes. You can also use it on your Diamond Shield. Foam paintbrush is a great tip.

303 on the slide seals and on the black plastic latches like I have on the outside TV door. Brings the sun faded latches back to there original black color.

I tape a micro fiber pad to the pole I use for the pool brush and it’s just long enough
These are very light and are cheap to to purchase

I apply 303 to the slide seals by sticking an old sock over a paint paddle,then spraying the sock. It gets in between the rubber and the slide without making a mess on the paint.

You can get a telescoping work pole at HD. They have models out to ~20ft.
