Slide out top seal replacement

Does anyone have any documentation/advice concerning replacement of the black rubber slide out seals? I have a 2010 23’ Flagstaff and I noticed when cleaning & protecting them this spring the top seal is beginning to deteriorate. I do all of my own repairs on the RV and would like to hear from anyone who has tackled this project.

I am in the same shape. I have a 2012 Forest River Surveyor. Only the top seal of the slide out is deteriorated. I guess the sun did its damage. Will want to replace all of the seals when I tackle this job. Any help for us will be appreciated.

I was told that these type of slides make the repairs a lot easier because the slide out walls do not have to be removed for repair. The interior slide out wall trim will need to be removed this will allow the slide wall to exceed past the outer wall so you can access the seals and service the area effected. If I would have known this I would have done the job myself as well. You also have to remove some of the slide seal to make sure you purchase the proper one to replace. Once the slide seal is removed you can simply move the slide back into the trailer and put a cover or tarp over the work area until all your parts arrive. Good luck with your project I'm sure it will go well just take your time
