Slide seal on my 2015 27RLWS

I've taken my trailer out twice now and both times the top seal on the couch slide has slid forward when closed. It was in place while we were camping. I noticed it when we were parking the trailer at the storage lot. Has anyone else had this problem?Click image for larger version

Yes, but on a side seal, not the top. The seal arrangement is the same with the bulb seal fitting on a T rail. Just put a small screw at one end or the other to secure the bulb seal to the T rail below. As a side note, if the bulb seal is free to move with the slide closed, the slide needs adjusting as it's not contacting enough.

Thanks Dave! I'll try screwing it down as glue didn't seem to work. I'll look into the slide seating properly too.

VLP or RV Goop are good adhesives. Have screws in mine. Don't over tighten the screw to where it penetrates the rubber too much. Don't want water getting behind that screw.
