2014 Rockwood Windjammer 3065 slido out adjustments

The slide outs on our 2014 3065 Windjammer don't seem to be seating properly. I have looked on the slide site but they don't seem to have the adjustment listed any more. Also there seems to be a drain hole that you can see daylight through. When towing through rainy weather the carpet becomes wet. Can this hole be sealed up?
Thanks in advance

Hey Don,
Which slide is leaking and from where? And can you post a couple of photos or the "drain hole" that you are talking about? Have you had the WJ since new or just purchased it? I have a 2014 3001w and it is really water tight; was out camping this past April and got 4" of rain in 7 hours with no leaks whatsoever.

I will take some pictures of it tomorrow and post them. Thanks for the reply.
We just got it a month or so ago. We are th first owners. We picked it up from a dealer liquidation so no warranty

Photos and a good description will really help. I know there are forum members with the same exact TT, so they will know what they are looking at.
We have been very lucky as we have been in several HEAVY rainstorms while camped and a couple on the road with no leaks at all (knock on wood). Noisy as H*!! when it rains hard on the bedroom slide out roof, but that is all; we are getting slide awnings on the next rig.

pictures

I did manage to take some pictures today. Now to see if I can get them uploaded
Ok first picture is where you can see a hole through the floor beside the slide that is the pantry Fridge and couch. next picture is the poor alignment of the big slide. and then a further away picture of the entrance door and the problem slide. The last picture is the dinette slide that fits properly.

Thanks
Don

Hey Don,
Congrats on your new Windjammer. Ours is a different floor plan ( 3029W ), but still has the same offset issue you have. That is if you're asking about how the brown plastic tire arches don't meet up nicely. You'd think the big brains, with their fancy college degrees, could have planned for that. Oh wait, that might cost a couple dollars extra So it all makes sense. As long as the rubber seal on the slide is up against the trailer wall nice and tight ( no bends or twists ), you should be okay. As to that hole...Our TT is in the shop and I'd like to give ours a look. But do not recall seeing that. If it's letting water in, that's BAD & I'd seal it.

Oh yea, based on our experience on our 1st trip, I recommend you get better tires than came on your trailer.

X2 on getting better tires. We put Goodyear Marathon Load D's and tire pressure monitors (TPM) on ours after about a year, and reading all the horror stories on the forum". Feel MUCH better.

Your slides look about the same pulled in as mine; they don't pull as tight as you might think, but I have no leaks so far. Do you have a copy of the Owner's Manual from FR? Limited mention of slide seals on page 39, and no suggestions for products to use although when I was in Camping World I saw some products for cleaning and lubricating the seals. I am sure there are LOTS of suggestions on this forum if you search for "cleaning slide seals." Might be good to pick up some product to have on hand.
I would push out the slides all the way out, look for any rubber seal around the opening that seems different, nicked, or doesn't very tightly grasp the slide walls. I would also check all the seals around the outboard end of the slide for the same issues, look at the perimeter of the opening for any protruding fastener or perhaps a bump under the rubber seal that might be keeping the rubber seal from seating when inboard. Then I would pull the slide about 1/2 the way in and check to see if all the perimeter seals flipped under as they should; again look for one that isn't behaving like the rest. Before you pull it the remainder of the way in, I would wipe down all the seals with some cleaner, and then some type of preservative treatment. Don't forget to look under the slide also to see if the seals are in good shape, especially if it is leaking onto the carpet when traveling in rain.
Where exactly in the drain hole you mentioned? Is it shown in one of the photos?

The first photo taken inside the RV in the black area there is a white dot. This is looking down right over the front wheel by the entrance door to the Rv I am wondering why this isn't sealed in some way.

That is weird indeed. If you are driving in heavy rain, then tires could certainly whip up water and it would wick into the carpet surrounding it. I would get some black or clear silicone and a screw that fits snugly in the hole (doesn't have to screw in, just fill most of the hole) and coat it with silicone before poking it into the hole. Make sure of course that it doesn't stick up or down as an obstruction. By doing it this way, you could remove it if needed in the future. If the carpet around this area is getting wet, that is the first place I would address, then look at the seals next. Good luck, but I would wager this is the culprit letting the carpet get wet.
