Blue Ridge Slinging water

I also have a 3025 Blue Ridge with same problem, water leaking in underbelly😔. I had to remove all insulation in rear of coach because it was soaked. I have installed a homemade reflection device between tires and slide openings to try and stop.Do not know if it works, have not drove in rain? I do not have water getting inside camber, just in underbelly. Hope this helps😎

I'd be curious if your homemade device works. I think I'll try to move that gasket when it warms up as long as there's enough material to screw to.

not sure if its the same thing but our SolAire got water in it that was wicked up by the tires the first time we drove in a bad rainstorm. We contacted the dealer and brought it in. They found several areas under the trailer that hadn't been sealed well with foam so the water was getting in there then running down the wires, etc and into the tt, soaking the carpet and leaving water on the floor. They sealed all of the holes with expanding foam and its been fine ever since. Might take a look underneath and see if there's any places that water could get in that you could seal up with foam.

If you run it up, it tightens seal inside bottom, outside top.
All slides do not have that, only the LCI mechanical. You are 100% correct count your turns and make sure it's the same on both sides of the slide....

Hi we have a 23 ikss Rockwood Roo and had that problem with the slide. It went back to the dealer and they put a thicker heavier rubber gasket along the bottom. It didn't work. Still took water under the table. They said they would have to research and get back to us . In the mean time we have a friend with the same camper, same problem. He figured out a fix. He shaped a piece of metal and screwed it to the underneath of the slide. So when the slide in the metal is covering the wheels. Seems to be working. The dealer took pictures of it.

We had gravel under the slide on our 3025,it tore the flooring when slide was moved in or out.Factory said impossable..I replaces 3in seal on bottom with 4in and prob is solved.when slide comes in it lifts up,3in seal left about 1in air gap and tires would throw gravel up onto floor.
