I recently replaced the gasket on our bedroom slide and was very happy to find, as hoped, it solved the pesky leak I'd been fighting for months - at least I thought it had. After an overnight shower I went out to find the leak was back!
Since this wasn't the first time it had rained since replacing the seal, I was more than a little "perturbed" by the leak and started investigating. The slide was out overnight and I could see no problems with the gasket on either side. Then I got out my ladder and took a look at the top:
I could see giant rat (OK, raccoon) footprints on top of the slide and roof. Anyone have any similar experience with a raccoon shredding a slide seal? Other than keeping the slide closed, any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening again?
