Do you have cold air coming in under the extended slide?

If you did, what have you done to fix this? I have a 2005 Rockwood Roo (Model 232). Under the couch slide, there are two black rubber flaps on either side of the motor that pushes the slide out. However, between the metal bars of the motor there is about a 4" gap where cold air is just rushing in.

I'd love to know what you've done to fix this before I reinvent the wheel. My current thought is to enclose the motor driven area in reflectix like a giant box of it so the draft goes away in 40 degree weather!

I figure the gaps under my sofa slide are fresh air intakes for my Big Buddy Heater.

Seriously, I haven't come up with a solution to the problem. If the wind ain't blowing, I usually don't even think about it while camping.
