Leaking Slide Room Top Seal

Good day all,

We have a 2005 Monaco Knight 38PDQ.

I noticed after a rain with our slides in that there was water on the floor in front of our fridge.

The next time it rained with our slides in, I saw a small stream of water coming down the inner side of our flush slide out. I found that the top seal over the slide is "unstuck" and rolled under in places allowing water to come through.

Can this be re-glued? Is it difficult to replace? Approximate repair cost?

Thanks in advance,

Mike and Deb Fry, 2005 Monaco Knight 38PDQ, American Car Dolly

Access is the issue with these. You may have to lift off your slide topper to fit a new seal on. The seals themselves are not expensive. Some fit on to an extruded lip, some glue, some screw & glue. Examine the type of seal you have and match it up from this company:

I do not know the cost to have this done at a shop. Another source is to contact Monaco and they may have stock. I found that Rev Group had my top seal cheaper that Steel.

Have a 06 Beaver. Mine push on to a lip. Replaced a couple of mine without removing the room but it was a HUGE pita you may be able to reseat the small one. The wiper doesn’t keep the water out when the room is fully out or in. That is done by the seals on the inner and outer wall. PM me if you want. Dealt with room leaks for a while before I got on top of it. Or call. 817-715-0137

Just an FYI: I lubricate all the rubber seals on my slides, inside and on the outside 2-3 times a year with silicon spray (check your spray can and make sure there's no petroleum additives).

Camco and others make silicon sprays just for the slide out rubber seals.
