The weather stripping worked some what,,, the rubber on the front side of the dinette slide is a mess,,, nothing seams to help that one,,, problem looks to paint on the interior part of the seal ??? I did also find part of the top was not properly rolling over,,, cleaned & wiped it with protectant,,, will check it next time we put slide out,,,
no sure how to ever check the top when camping,,, do not carry a ladder ???

Maybe a better option than Grip Tape ???

Just checking in to see if anyone did the grip tape yet? If the weather is nice this weekend I was planning on doing it but was hoping someone would relay positive results first.

Slide seal

Didn't try the grip tape but did take three pieces of Velcro about 4" long and space out about 1' on 3' section 3050s finger like side up on Velcro worked perfect only had about 3'-4' that was sticking in the middle of slide

Weather stripping is working very well,,, except for front of dinning room slide,,, As I said that one has some paint on the interior rubber,,, which I believe is not letting it roll over !!! Next time I have the slides out,,, I plan to spray Rubber lube on the painted one ???

Tried both "soft" and "bristle" sides of the Velcro. Neither worked. Decided not to use the step grip tape as I don't like the way the granules fall off and also figured its roughness might wear down the rubber seal. Worried that actual weather strip would tend to get pried loose by the seal hitting it on edge since most weather strip is designed to be compressed/squished rather than have the edge of that seal hitting/digging at it trying to flip over. Sanded the edges of a wood yardstick to make them smooth and rounded and threw it in the storage bay. Quick, cheap and easy. Done, done & done.
