Camco Non-Slip Grip Tape can be bought on Amazon. 2 six inch pieces on top and each side of all slides will solve the problem. Space it about 18" in from the corners and center it on the slide. When the seal passes over the tape it will flip it over so that it can do its job.

Slidout Rubbers ???

I am anal about slide care
I clean mine regularly and use the seal conditioner foam and slide gear anti corrosive spray
I purposely wax my sides so cleaning is easier
Slide operation is a two man job with us to prevent accidents and stop a malfunction from blockage or debris
3of my seals flip and one is stubborn
I "help" that one buy having the switch girl stop and I run my fingers under the seal to "help it"
My main concern with this process is when they are retracted cause I can't reach some of them when In the coach
Outside?no big deal I make sure they are flipped after full extension
I do like the idea of a fabric patch applied near the top for a hard to reach areas
I regularly clean the tops under the toppers
Remember,when slids are "in" they don't disappear,they live in your "home" and I don't want dirty grimy slides in my clean house

That looks to be a good idea,,, I am sure that Grip Tape would out last my foam weather stripping !!! But I already bought the weather stripping,,, so guess I will give it a try !!! Hopefully it will stick !!! Plan to clean sides first with SD 20 first,,, And I guess I better get out a ladder,,, and see what is going on,,, on top ???
Thanks for the Idea !!!

I also have the same problem with the rubber seals on the driver side. Sounds like a number of great ideas will have to give them a try. Thanks

I think I am going to try some Velcro using the brush like side as it should last a good while without wearing the slide seal very much and I already have some
