2018 Geo Pro 19FBS - This weekend I noticed a small gap beginning to form in the corner of my slide out's seal. Despite the pics this gap is on the top corner of the slide out. I was told by the dealership this is NOT a warrantied repair and is considered a maintenance issue. Is there a recommended process for this repair and/or recommended adhesive/sealant I should be using? Sorry, can't seem to properly orient the pics, but I think you get the idea. TIA

The first thought I had was how the hell.....? My second thought was push it back from the inside , but really you can't do that. So my final thought would be to try a self leveling sealer to try and put in there, but damn it would have to be pretty thick to not run all over. Maybe a couple small layers of roofing caulk? Force it in a little bit with a very small hole in the nozzle, let it dry. make a slightly bigger hole in the nozzle and repeat...then keep repeating until you get a flush finish with edge....Again, I am just guessing here....It's probably what I would do....

The pictures are messed up. What you're seeing is a flat surface on TOP of the slide. I can't seem to rotate the pictures and they've somehow uploaded sideways. I've talked to Forest River and so far they're saying Eternabond tape is likely the best route. Thanks!
