Coating under slide

Noticed a scratch/cut in the coating under the bedroom slide. Checking further I found a screw behind the bottom seal, apparently left behind during construction.
Any suggestion on what to use to paint/seal this material?

That's a really good question! It's a shame it even had to happen--but, it is what it is. I imagine there's several different types of sealant that could be used here. I think I would buy some clear silastic (tube) and put a couple of beads right down the center if the tear. I'd then use about 1" wide metal or plastic spatula to spread out/smooth the beads into the material. This should, after it dries, give you a good strong, flexible repair that should last for years.

Thanks for all the help. Found some stuff called Squim (used for belly coat). Worked great.

It is a tape with adhesive on one side, made from the same material as the underside of slide. The RV shop called it Squim.

Looks like that could be darco on the bottom of that slide-out.
Darco tape may work for you.(underbelly tape)
Do you have any links to Squim... I cant find it on line.
Here a link that you may find a good read.
