Dan, if you're asking me, the answer is No... but my 2015 295RSX (picked up in July of 2014) is going to a local dealership Tuesday to have 3 slide toppers installed at no cost to me.

To all... please don't poke the F. R. hornet nest until I get my unit home after this installation! Thanks.

I had my 2016 295rsx built with slide toppers from the factory. Been thru at least two very hard rains and no leaks. I paid $700 for the set of three and looks like it was a wise add-on. Pure luck for me, I was just thinking it would cut summer heat (it did).

Where is your slide leaking at? Can you pin point the area with a picture? I'm sure one of our smart FFM would be able to help dealers are useless. I was told by my x-dealer that FR only requires them to send 1 teck to class to make the dealer certified.

Leaky Slide out Brand new Wildcat 275ckx

I normally post pics off my phone using Tapatalk, but uploads have failed all day. The left (looking from inside) end of the bedroom wardrobe slide leaks onto the vinyl flooring on the bathroom floor. Fortunately, it does not leak on carpet. I can put a cup in a certain place near the shower and catch every drip but I don't really want water on the inside of the slide walls.

I wouldn't have guessed my dealership had ANY certification process. I think some techs at my shop were laying brick last week and some were working in a nursing facility.

I'm still waiting for the seal kit that FR left off the bedroom slide.

My last pic post attempt just worked so I'll try a pic answer to your question.

Mr. Dan

Looking at your picture, this is exactly where ours leaked last night. I have already use two thick extra large bath towels, and the water seems to keep seeping in. It's not even raining anymore, but the leak continues. Have you found a solution yet ?

Is there a drain tube and or catch cup under there at all.. I do not have your TT but our slide has a drain tube that lays in a small catch tray (like a little tub if you will, 3x6 or so ). Water drains into this then out the trailer bellow, could the tube be out of place?
