Adhesive backed foam door/window seal found in any hardware store. The sweep seal gets pulled in when the slide closes and back out when extended so the aluminum angle never touches it.

First two photos is the seal with the slide closed and the seal is sealed to the edge of the floor.

I used a piece about 4 inches long with the foam attached to mark the underside of the slide where I wanted locate the full length angle. You can still see the white line.

I have the Rockwood 8329SS and have the same issue with water coming up through the corner of the slide out above the tires when it rains. We got quite a lot of water from the kitchen slide out and had to stuff towels in the corner while driving. I am taking it to the dealer next Mondy and hope that they know how to fix it.

Found the fix

Thanks everyone for all your help and thoughts on this issue. I finally found a tech who specialized in seals at Campersworld Ft Myers. He showed me how to fix my issue on one of their used 3025's. The unit was built with the wrong size sweep seals under my slide outs . They where actually 1 inch shorter than what should have been installed. Because I had not moved it before there is no way I would have known the issue. So I purchased the new sweep seal 140.00 and replaced it. In contact with Forest River and asked if they would reimburse my parts cost but because warranty is over I don't think I will have much luck. Again thanks for all the help

I had the same issue with my Cherokee. The slide seal was directly above the tire, what was happening was the tire was throwing water up in between the seal. I made a shield that hides the seal from the tire, this keeps the water off the seal and out of the trailer. this was 10 years ago!
