slide out seal damage avoidance

1. Along the side seal, there are a series of raised black bolts that the seal has to 'navigate' each time the slide goes in or out. Seems obvious that after time these bolt heads will damage the seal. Am looking into replacing all those bolts with flush heads (like should have been done at the factory).

2. The seal along the bottom is torn on both ends because the seal (again) has to navigate its way around the foam caulking glob at both ends. Since I have to replace the bottom seal, I intend to make clearance so that the seal doesn't get 'caught' and tear (also like should have been done at the factory).

Suggest anyone to take a look at what the seals have to 'deal with' going in and out, and remedy same.
