So my 295rsx bedroom slide still leaks

, can anybody tell me when the slide is extended is there some kind of inner seal besides that little gray foam weather stripping that should be tight against the frame to keep water out?. There's an outer seal around the slide that when the slide is closed it keeps the weather out, what about on the inside????When it is fully opened nothing seals around the frame besides that flexible seal arounds the outside.

Do you have a slide cover? Here are pics of the inside of my bedroom slide. We have been in very heavy rain and never had any water get inside. We have a 2015 295RSX and love it.
Sorry you are having issues with yours.

Thanks so much for the pics,is there anyway possible to see what the inside seal looks like,in other words when the slide is open all the way what is contacting the frame of the slide?There is a .5 gray foam type seal that one would think would butt up against the frame, it's almost like the slide should be further out..

Should be covered under warranty. Hope they get it right.
Glad to help you out. Let me know if I can do anything else.

PS: We'll be out you way in late Sept. Hoping for decent weather as we want to drive up Pikes Peak.

Enjoy, Pikes Peak is a great ride up. Use lower gears on the way back down to save the brakes. Also would recommend staying at Colorado Springs for a day or two to somewhat get used to the altitude, many flat landers keel over from heart/altitude sickness. Stay hydrated, have good sunglasses and sun screen. It's amazing how fast you can burn. Wear layered water proof clothing,you can hit anything from beautiful sunshine to snow. Also go earlier in the day, less chance of afternoon thunderstorms..Driving up is cool but you can also take the tram up from Manitou Springs. If you want to see a great view of Denver try going up mount Evans. The ride up can be very exciting or maybe the ride down,sheer cliffs with no guard rails. there's a little pucker factor there especially for the passenger side.

I'd like to be able help you solve the leak in your 295RSX but, alas, I'm in the same boat. I've pulled mine to my dealership 3x to have this fixed... and it stopped leaking for a while. It started leaking again in June. It's on the list for repair at the Goshen rally.

got a 2015 295rsx. Same issue bedroom closet slide leaks. So in that pic is that actually an additional white seal on the inside? Mine doesn't have it either. Only a 1'8" wide piece of foam weather stripping.
