Question Leak (under) I think BOTH slide outs when driving in the rain.

Chaparral 30RLS (2017) 5th wheel.


A couple of issues really.


1. With the drivers side (kitchen side) slide-out - OUT - you can see light under the lower edge. I've been under there and the bottom (inside) wiper seal has a notch cut out at the two (2) metal slide arms. The seals just flap down at these spots leaving - really no- seal at all. WTF.


2. When the MAIN and KITCHEN slides all in and appear to have a solid seal - when driving in the rain / wet we get water on the floor (both sides). WTF


HELP ... anyone with a similar Fifth with a solution?

need to go around and check the seals when closed and look for anyplace water may get in . i've seen many a slide out that the bottom seal was almost non functional . may look at replacement seals that are a bit wider . if under warranty maybe you can get a stealer to do it
