2109S slide not flush to outside of TT

Just bought a 2014 2109S Rockwood TT. I questioned why the slide was not flush with the exterior wall. I was told they aren't meant to be because of the rubber seal. I also looked at another 2109 and it was the same way. Doesn't seem to be any air leakage, but I have never seen a slide that was not flush. What do ya think?? Thanking in advance.

Welcome to the forum!

All you need is a compressed seal around the entire perimeter of the slide...they're never flush with the sidewall.

I have a 2012 2109S and never had a problem with any leakage. I do maintain the seals with the silicone spray to keep them supple and check the top of the slide for debris before closing.

Totally normal. No problems on mine at all so far.
