As stated before by others, we wrap the side straps one time around the support bar on both sides and snap both sides. We then close all windows and the door and turn on both fantastic fans, creating a suction. If you close each bed slowly, the suction from the fans pulls the loose material in. We started this technique 3-4 trips ago. It should be standard during the PDI. Works like a charm!

Hi, We just drove up to Young State Park for the week ( about 250 miles ). Happy to say the pvc top seal covers made the trip just fine with no issues. They stayed right in place the entire trip.

Good deal! We used to be members there when our DD's were alot younger. Was a nice campground back then, we have neighbors with a 2012 19 ft Roo that are there almost every weekend, older couple, but they like the campground.

I'm going to use the pvc covers for traveling as well as during storage, sure can't hurt. We've been fortunate not to have towed in a rainstorm.....yet. Interesting to see what leaks if anything.

I remembered this post and tried it last weekend.......it worked great.

I picked up my 23IKSS about 3 weeks ago. It rained all the way home (4 hour drive) I noticed when we got it home that the front bed was wet so I got to looking at the out side bed end and noticed a hole in the top left track on both the front and back beds. I filled the holes with calk and have not had a leak since. On the back bed end there was a corresponding hold in the bottom track but not on the front bed.

What did you mean by the top left track? Is this on the door itself, or along the camper where the door meets?

It is the frame on the camper that frames the opening for the bed door. When you open the bed door the the frame that is still attached to the camper.
