Am I missing a seal on my full wall slide?

The wife was cleaning our new Bay Star in preparation for our upcoming road trip and noticed daylight coming in under the sofa. After she called my attention to it I stuck my head up under the slide on the outside and I can see about an inch gap between the floor and the bottom of the sofa. That makes for a huge air leak, not to mention that it's a place for small critters to get into the coach. Shouldn't there be some kind of seal here? Any other Newmar owners have this problem?

Yes you are. I had the same issue on my 2019 dsdp. They added an aluminum strip and rubber seal.

well, stupid me. When I took the coach back to NIRV to have some other items corrected, I pointed this out to service advisor Sean Simerly. Turns out the slide was not extended all the way out. For some reason the slide motor is stopping prematurely. That could be my fault as you have to hold the switch in the extend position until the slide is fully extended. I'm used to the Dutch Star slides where it is a momentary switch.

5 stars for Sean Simerly and NIRV Lewisville, TX. I talked to several Newmar owners during our stay in NIRV's campground and they all had great things to say about their experience.
