3051s Wall slide seal repair

Need to do some repairs on the top seal of my 2014 3051s wall slide. The seal is folded up under its self and is right in the middle of slide. Anyone know how much of a job it is to remove the slide topper so I can reach the seal and straighten it out and lube it? Or is this something should take to dealer ? ( Worked in fleet dept for 30 years so not afraid of mech stuff) Any help would be great Thanks

Take it to the dealer if under warranty! Start documenting what could be a costly repair if it repeats.

I would still take it to the Dealer since the repair they made did not fix your problem.

Call the dealer they should fix it again, job wasn't done right. If they won't complain up the ladder and they will get sick of hearing your name and they will fix what they didn't fix before . Don't let them claim it's not the same thing as last time.

Is it possible for the OP to post a picture? I just can't wrap my head around what the issue is.

I would agree. Take it back to the dealer, it should already be documented as an issue.

I'm not sure if it would be a warranty claim or not. If we paid them to fix it, we would expect them to fix it correctly. Without knowing what was done, by who, when and what direction they received I can't say for sure. But if you took it in for that same exact issue it is worth a call to the dealer.
