I thought he said the top seal would fold in toward the inside of the camper. I watched from the top outside as my wife closed it this time and a portion, say about two feet tried to fold in but the rest stayed out pointing to the outside. I straightened the seal out and checked the side ones too. No leaks.
So I guess the question is which way should the seal face? Thanks
Just had slide out leak too while closed. Water came in from bottom left of dinette. TT was parked next to house with a tilt, not severe, that made slide side high. We had a steady rain for several hours when this occurred.
Trailer now at dealer for a fix, but are these slide outs just prone to leaks no matter what? Guess I could understand it better if the slide was out and high sided, but having trouble with leak happening with it in.
Comments would be appreciated and thanks.
