Mine slides to the rear just as you see it, a 100 mile trip. It seems to me that the silde out when it is pulled in is not tight on the top side, and the slide is all the way in. I posted another thread about the bottom of the slide out interior wall being cracked, I wounder if this is related? I see your pic about the bolt adjustment, I will check mine, thanks.

Rockwood06,

Before you make any adjustments to your slideout, check to see if it looks like the rear of the slide is pulling in harder than the front and if the gap is even top to bottom on both ends.

Since my top seal always moves forward and your always moves to the rear, I am thinking maybe too much pressure on one end of the slide is causing the top seal to move.

There is a stop for outward movement of the slide also, that may be the culprit with the wall cracking issue. Do you have the link to the M-Tec slide drive adjustment procedure? Here is the link http://www.mteccorporation.com/downl...frameslide.pdf

Thanks for the link, my camper is home for winterizing and the slide out is open so that the carpet can be cleaned and all that good stuff before it is closed up. I will check and measure the slide out this week, the weather here is going to be in the 60's which is odd for November. Thanks again.

Here is the reply I got back from Rockwood regarding the upper slide seal moving. Basically they are saying, "Glue it down".

Good Morning John,

My name is Jonathan Gust, I am the Flagstaff Warranty Manager, and I think I can shed some light on you issue. The best way to keep the seal attached is a newer sealent we are using in produstion now called TremPro 645, made by Tremco.

Re-attach the D-seal put a screw at both ends, then put a liberal amount of 645 along the top and over screws..allow a day or two for drying. This product has been doing very well for us, and it should solve the issue you are having.

Please feel free to contact me for anymore questions or advice..

Well it's a year later and my top seal has not moved since I adjusted the in stops on the slide. The top seal is only held by a single screw at each end, no glue of any kind. We have traveled about 4000 miles this season, so I think the problem is solved.

I see that I am not the only one with this problem!! Mine has 2 slide outs, and the front slide out (bedroom) never has any problem. The rear superslide- couch and dining table, has the same problem; the rubber seal on the top of the camper where the slide out seals up to slides backwards when traveling. I have put 2 screws with rather large washers in the seal to hold it in place; but it still manages to come loose and slide back!! Will be very interested in the fix!!! Randy
