Slide out ski/water intrusion
Greetings, just wanted to share with you what I found on my NEW (2019) FR Sabre 33IKT. We took our first trip and after getting set up I did an outside inspection. On the underside of the living room slide I noticed the wood scratched and scraped on both sides. When I checked the kitchen slide I saw their was plastic on both sides underneath where the slide rides. Apparently they overlooked putting them on the living room slide at the factory. Spoke to FR and they sent a set right away. Today went to install and the one side was no problem, went very well. One the other side when I removed the trim piece the wood underneath was saturated, it rained two days ago.
If I did not have too install the slide skis I would not have found this. Probably a year or so down the road the slide plywood would have been destroyed and out of warranty! So without the slide ski their wasn't a drip edge and the plywood was exposed. I checked the other slides and saw they weren't sealed very well, ran a bead of silicon.
