slide air tight

i had a friend open a slide on his u320 the other day, and before doing so, he opened the driver's window. you could actually feel the vacuum the slide was producing with he opened it and the discharge as he closed the slide. i was impressed.
is this normal on these coaches or was his just an isolated case?

This is not uncommon. I have a 2008 Winnebago Tour that I bought new in April 2009 and the dealer made a point of telling me to open a window or the door when retracting or extending the slides. I always do this and if next to the open door or window you can really feel the suction. The dealer opened the lid on my fantastic fan then with the fan turned off brought in one of the slides. The fan blades spun like the fan was running on its highest setting as the compressed air shot out the vent. It convinced me big time. The dealer told me that unlike some manufacturers Winnebago cuts their slides out of the sides to ensure a tighter fit where some just cut a whole then make a slide to fit it. I am sure the higher end coaches like the Foretravel are made to even higher tolerances than the Winnies so I am not surprised at all about your friend's coach.
