On my '15 Aspire 44B between the two roadside slides there is some bubbling of the paint, along with some rust stains. Right on the belt line. Especially after a rain, rust streaks run down the side. Wondering where exactly this comes from and if there is anything I can do to prevent this?

Edit: my apologies in the title. This was my first post from my phone and not sure how it ended up as “Ruztt”. As well as all the other spelling errors.

It appears water is getting behind that trim piece and rusty water is coming out the bottom.
I'd be concerned.
Not sure how I'd address it though. Maybe refresh the caulk along the top line shown in the pic? Above the rust.

John, on the 14's and maybe some of the earlier 15's there was a problem with the silicone sealant used on the seams of the slides causing bubbling of the paint. This went back and forth for over a year between Precision Paint saying Entegra used the wrong sealant and Entegra saying the sealant wasn't prepped properly before paint. I don't how it was ever resolved only that S&S repaired mine during warranty and it stayed repaired. From looking at your photo it looks like one of the blistered paint was not repaired and the water is running into the frame which is angle iron causing the rust streaks.

This was just the beginning of mine, I had several spots that blistered during the warranty period.

You may also have screw heads rusting in the slide trim. a rustolium applied with a Qtip would fix that.
