Slide Sidewall Seperation

I am attaching a picture to focus this discussion on the issue. I am seeking any information that might lead to its successful repair. By discussion here in the forum. And especially a specialist that has resolved his specific issue on more than a few slides. Thanks in advance for your focused response. This is my first post, hope all info comes together as it should.

Since you want specific, how about telling us what coach you have -- That area has been wet, so the first thing is to find out is finding the leak -- Bill Willard

You really need to include some info like your coach model , the year ,
which slide and maybe where you are located .

I'm going to refer you to a place / person that knows slides , they
actually make plates and things to repair slides as well as replacement fabric.
The co is Stonevos in Florida the owners are Chris and his wife Ingrid .
Chris is always willing to help you with a problem .
Suggest you send him your picture and give a call .

If that is the most serious issue you have then you are lucky. That panel could have been manufactured that way. The water may have just helped it appear worse than it is. To repair you would need to separate slightly and then apply epoxy glue and clamp.
I would just monitor it to see if it gets worse. For the time being put some clear exterior coating on it and if there is a water leak track it down and fix it.

JA we really need more info but I will make a guess, Monaco coaches epically the early coaches had a problem with the slide awning pulling the sidewall looks at the top, some were fasten with rivets and some with screws ther rusted broke over time. It is a pretty easy task to repair if that is your problem

I encourage you again to get in touch with Chris Throgmortin .
It is my understanding that he has already developed and sells
L shaped stainless steel plates to address / repair the situation
you have .
They are made to fit your slide along with instructions
Here is another link to Chris , this company he calls Talin
you may be able to pick up some ideas as well as some prices .
Let me say that I no connection to Chris except I bought
new toppers from him , never even met him.

The "L" type plate can be I 1/2 inch aluminum angle that you can get at Lowe`s or HomeDepot - I wouldn`t use over 1 1/4 pan head screws -- The carpet will cover the floor part & the side wall part shouldn`t be a problem either -- This is INSIDE the coach -- That will be your cheapest structural fix, but the water leak should receive your immediate attention -- If you get rot in the floor or side wall, you`re in for a huge expense -- I have no experience with the plates someone has suggested , but I have purchased awnings from Stone Vos & Chris is first class -- He won`t lead you wrong -- Bill Willard
