It does protect it, but should still be lubed periodically.

The RV service center that did mine actually dismounts the slide toppers first and does them that way. Time & labor intensive, though- 1 to 1 1/2 hour for each.

I just bring my slides out six inches and then wipe down the seals on the outside .. Then bring them in until I can reach them on the inside I can do all 3 slides from a ladder in about a hour..

I've used a sock taped to a long pole to reach the seals. Just soak the sock with one's favorite product.

Finally parked it indoors! Still waiting on the power company, but the pool is close enough to plug the RV into an outlet there.

That's not a very nice way to talk about the boss, even if he's getting you to do all that for him.

I'm guessing I'm missing some other acronymical meaning

I do have slide toppers on the TT and this does get under there.

Photo of tool: I used a 6' piece of 1/2"od aluminum tube. You can see how it's attached. The flexible paddle is 2" x 3" x 1/8" and can get under the seal, flip over to do the top and the "p". Flip over to do the wipe off in the same manner. It's covered with a 5" x 9" gauze pad and secured with a tie wrap. Works awesome!. EMT might work for the pole, PVC, meh... you need the thing to be ridgid to push-pull back and forth and control it under the seal

Those Grand Designs are a little Pricey just have not heard how well they are made, but haven't heard good or bad, only know one person with one and they have it in a seasonal site.

They are around the price range of a Columbus but not near as nice.
His feels cheap and is kinda plain inside.
The vent fans are those little 4" after thought fans.
