Inside Kitchen Slide Water Damage

On my kitchen slide on the inside the wood trim at the top has water damage. Wood is pealing apart. It seems water has leaked in from the outside when the slide was open. Has anyone else experienced this and what was the fix. Iím guessing I would need to have new wood pcs sent from Forest river ? Bigger question is how do I stop water from doing this again. Thanks....Ron

On the app it doesn't show up.....
Guess that's the price I pay for using app over browser.

I had a similar thing happen to my sofa slide. I just had it in for service and they adjusted the slide room and lubricated the seals. Only time will tell if it stops the leak. I have not had the wood trim replaced, but I have damage similar to what you describe.

It was hard for me to diagnose because it leaked while unattended, but I couldn't find a leak during subsequent rain events.

After a severe rain event in Frederickburg Texas my living room slide had standing water on top of the slide. Even with the slide awning some water can get on top. When I retracted the slide I got the surprise of a lifetime when much of the residual water emptied into the living room. The seal should have squeegied it outside. I'm guessing your damage was the result of water remaining on top of your slide and being absorbed by the trim over time.

Ron, is the trim around the slide is a veneered or mdf product? Are repair and refinishing not an option?

The fix for me is, after every rainy trip, wipe down the top of the slides to prevent the water from standing and causing long term damage.
