slideout seals

Recommended Posts

The company waxing my 2012 Blackwood tells me the seals on the slides next to the walls (four slides) are rotting out.

 

Q. do the seals come in a roll or do I have to get them fitted to my model?

 

How much trouble is it to replace the seals?

 

Thanks..

Replacing slide seals is not all that difficult. The "D" seals are the easiest. There are two parts, the wiper, and the "D" seal. The seals come in a roll. You buy them by the foot, and cut them to length. I replaced about 3/4 of my slide seals in about 6-7 hours.

 

Besides Amazon, another source is AP Products.

It was suggested above that you replace your seals with white ones. Our RV came with all white seals and they were a pain to keep clean as the dirt showed and they eventually had what looked like mold on them which would not come off. We replaced all of them after 7 years with all black seals. Greg

Interesting about these seals I had to replace my black ones at 5 yrs and a friend had a new TT less than a year old and his black ones went to mush, It kinda sounds like we got some inferior rubber. I remember as a youngster that I had bicycle tubes that got all sticky and just literally fell apart !

RV Dealer sent out a rep to take pics of the seals. He said they had rotten away. I'm supposed to hear from the dealer next week and bring the rig in to have new seals put on. Warrranty covers the cost.

 

Warranty also cover the resistor wires in the frig. Supposed to get new one next week.

 

Warranty also covering the toilet.

 

We're getting there...whew!

Did they have a reason for the seals going bad so soon ?
