Slide Seal

I have a 2006 Tiffin Zephyr. The drivers side front slide gasket becomes dislodged after several uses. The seal is manually pressed in to place without adhesive or fastners.

I was going to repair this myself. After removing the slide should I attach the new gasket with adhesive or other fastners?

Do you have a permanent solution to keeping the weather seal in place? I had it at Red Bay for 4 months and I thought this was fixed.

As soon as I operated the slide they came out. Lazydays in Tampa has removed and replaced them and Rodfathers (Amarillo) removed and replaced them Feb 2018.

This means this is a manufacturing defect.

Should I use adhesive, rivets and screws?

That actually looks like the wiper, not the inner or outer slide seals.

Mine are glued in place they use a serious contact cement and clean the surface extremely well. I looked on-line and saw some that are glued plus some that are glued and screwed. Not sure on your rig.

Mine have stayed on since 2008.

I will not comment on the labor quality of the two places that "worked" on your rig. But, rest assured I do have my opinion...

Yes, you can do it yourself - call Tiffin and get the correct wipers (or go to their on-line parts store). If you call, have your VIN number handy and they'll find your's pretty quickly.
