SEAL UNDER MASTER BED SLIDE ON OUR 365SAQBs

Can you guys look and see if the seal is suppose to touch the bottom of the slide on the bottom slide. Mine has about a 1/8th inch gap/space between the slide floor and the gasket. We were camping in a REALLY bad WINDY raining sideways rain storm. It was 40-50 mph gusts and rained like that for 18 hours! I went to pick up my sweat pants down on floor under bed and they felt wet. I could feel the cold air coming in there and when it was pouring out with the wind it must have carried some of the rain with the wind. I can reproduce the draft with the fantastic fan on in the main bath. I guess they will have to move the seal up an eighth of an inch. In the mean time I will put a strip of weather insulation in the space to keep the heat and rain out till I can get it fixed. Thanks for any info.

I don't have ours around right now so can't take a look sorry, but I am going to say that it should be touching. I would talk to your dealer to make sure. Sounds like a great place for Mosquitos to get in as well.

THANKS, KSSPORTSMAN. Wondering if you had same set up as me, ie...365saqb with master bedroom slide and that is the one you were speaking of that had the draft underneath. Thanks.

Mine was a 2013 365saq. Used it last winter at work. The side by the bathroom has a cold draft. Never did investigate why. Traded it for the other due to the kids getting their own camper.

EHORN.......I FOUND the culpret!!! I was wrong about the gasket space, it is normal. There is a 2x4 square angle iron support under king bed that is stationary. It does not move with the slide. It is hollow. To test and see Air BLASTING through this support run the fantastic fan with all the rv closed up!! I think It communicates with some void under the closet and or overhang/hitch area. If you have a 365saqB it would be worth it to see if you are having this issue, you see when it is raining real hard and the wind is like 30/40 mph it is blowing air/water into the rv and carrying moisture with it!! This is noticeable on the left side of bed. I blocked it off with some plastic and memory foam for now and will probably spray some foam in there later. Please anyone else let me know if you have this issue. It is an easy fix and will save you possible water damage later.

these pictures were taken with slide IN. this is the end of the square tubular support, i have shoved some memory foam in the end of it for now. again it runs the whole width of the bed. It runs from the point you see towards the front of rv.

Went to factory today looked at the frame it is a design flaw it draws air from the front nose cone. There is same thing on other side of room but it buts into the dresser.
