replacing rubber slide seal

We have a 2005 Georgetown XL 370 TS and the seal on the bedroom slide is cracked. I would like to replace it myself. Has anyone out there done this? Was it very difficult? Thanks in advance for all replys.

I also have a 2005 Georgetown, xl, and I have a few leaks around the slideouts. I am thinking I might have to replace the seals. I am waiting for responses along with ColeAve. Additionally, has anyone else had trouble with 2005 Georgetowns leaking around the slideouts?

I also have an issue with the sideout on our 2001GT 35 ft MH. No leaks but musty odor in the cupboards above the dinette/couch section. We have tried just about everything and have not seen any leaks but still dealing with the smell. HELP!!!

Slide Leaks

We have a 2005 Georgetown and had a serious leak above the sofa during a frog strangler blowing rain (slide was out). I paid to have the slide sealedwith silicone caulk but am yet to experience driving rain while it is out. We did drive in a major rain with nothing leaking while closed...

Slide Seal

I pulled one of my slide seals in order to clean off the caulk that had accumulated and seemed to be slowing down the movement of the slide. Think of the seal as a U shaped piece of rubber which fits over the edge of the motorhome. As the slide moves, this rubber "scraper" stays in contact.

To remove the seal just pull the U off the edge of the motor home. Its only a friction fit and it slips back on easily. You should be able to do the whole thing just using your hands as I did. No tools required.
