Well here we go again. My Crusader went into the shop January 13th to repair the wear and tearing of the under slides material. The first fix was to retape the worn areas. Then after my persuasion, they ordered 1 set of the slide repair kit to see if I approve them. Well I said ok and they ordered the 2nd set for the driver's side slide. Today they called and PT has said they are out of stock and back-ordered and they cannot give a delivery date. I am going next week and pick it up until they get the part in stock. I hope the rest of you are having better luck. My patience is running thin and I'm getting camping fever.

I have the same situation Fufys. My dealer initially received 2 sets of slide kits. They wrecked the first set because they did not follow the proper procedure. They did manage to install the second set, but it was on the Road Side slide which was not wearing nearly as bad. My curb side slide is where the majority of wear is happening. My wife spoke to the dealer this afternoon and they confirmed the slide kit is on back order. There is no ETA as of yet. I am going to pick it up on Friday morning anyway and start using it again.

I picked up my 295 last Friday morning and enjoyed the weekend in it after a long break. It was so nice to see it again! The slide kit fix had been installed on my road side slide. I was extremely impressed with it. I really believe this will solve the issue once and for all. I've attached a few pictures, not great as it is hard to really get a good picture without crawling under the slide. I can't wait for the kit to be installed on curb side slide. On that slide I will use a slide slicker on the carpet to help protect it as well.

The 90 (your 1st pic)on the side is supposed to go under the trim and not on top of it.
My concern is the wipers getting torn and any water that runs off the slide will be directed right to the edge area.

The back ordered slide kit have arrived at my dealer, I will be going in to get them installed in a few days. I have had the rig out for a few trips with the first set installed and so far so good, they are working perfectly. I think this should sort this issue once and for all for me.

Back at dealership

I took my 295 back to dealership Monday to have the other slide kit installed. I hope that this is a permanent fix.
