Slide out weatherproofing issue
We have a fairly new 2013 FR Wildwood 27RLS. I had the slide out open over the 4th of July weekend, and decided to look up on top of the slide for any debris. To my horror, about 50% or better of the sealant (a grey mastic) which is still incredibly tacky had come off the slider on the wall side, and was attached to the rubber gasket on the trailer side. This left holes in the sealant, up to a quarter inch that water can pour into the slide out wall.
I am a paint engineer, and it seem criminal that FR uses a tacky mastic type weather seal for this application. It really should be something that cures hard-like RTV silicone.
Anyone else have this experience?
Also, see my other post-this is a warranty issue, and the dealer here in SoCal, McMahons-has recently gone under, and they are the only dealer listed for SoCal on the Forest River website. So where do we go for warranty work?
