Issue with slide seal and seeking advice

Hello

I previously has a FR Roo 23SS but last year moved into a TT. I still follow this forum and it's a lot more active that the others I watch. So I'm asking my question here...

I have an issue with a kitchen slide seal on my Keystone 30RLi that I fear will grow into a real problem over time. There is already a small hole at the pinch.

The bracket for the gas line is pinching the lower flappy seal when the slide is closed. There isn't room to move the bracket enough to correct the issue. Although I am pretty happy with my dealer I'd just as soon not have them take a wack at fixing this.

I could;

1) Keep on camping and pretend it isn't happening (not in my nature),
2) Move the bracket somehow (least desirable),
3) Trim the seal for clearance and fabricate something that will replace the trimmed section (preferred method, but this could be like picking at rust on an old car).

So, what would you folks do in this situation.

Frank

Cut a notch in the bottoms edge of the seal so it clears the bracket and then make a section of foam to fit around the lines and against the seal.

Thanks Debmeb.

Yes, that looks like the only reasonable thing to do. I need to look closer to see what that seal is really protecting and how to implement the fix.

Thanks again.
