The main salon slide on my 2003 MDTS is having a problem. I retracted the slide before we left Flagstaff and the inner seal partially came loose where it's glued to the coach and rolled between the slide and the coach body. It jammed the upper portion of the slide.
I didn't notice anything wrong as I pulled the slide in, but ultimately saw that only the bottom of the slide came all the way in. The top was still 3 or 4 inches from the outer sidewall of the coach.
When I tried to extend the slide, it only went out a few inches before binding again.
I was able to get my fingers on the seal from the inside and pull much of it in. Then I used 3M dry silicon spray to lube the area. Only then could I get the slide to fully retract.
We're boondocking at the moment and heading to Bluff, UT, then Moab. I tried to extend the slide, but it began to bind after moving out a few inches. I was able to retract it and we're living with it retracted.
Any advice? Anyone know of a good RV tech in Bluff, Moab or Salt Lake City? Thanks.
