Camper Slide Seals

Had a warm day today ( 63 degrees )and decided to run the slides out and give a good check over for leaks inside and out after all the snow and ice--don't have a cover for it yet

Anyway,upon outer inspection I saw the bottom of the bedroom slide seal hanging out.(approx. 10 - 12" )
It's a 5er Montana Mountaineer.

It looks like it pulled off the install rivots,but I have no tooling to remove slide and repair-that may take some big stuff-and accurate too

Any body ever had something like this replaced?

I wonder what it may cost?

Thanks for any input!

Any pics? You shouldn't have to take the whole slide out, just repair the strip. On mine, it's a track that the seal slides into and is held on by screws. Worst case scenario, fill the original holes with sealent and then drill new ones to reattach the seal back to the slide.

I'll try to post a couple tomorrow,it's on the bedroom slide,so it's smooth fiberglass underneath-I can't even push it back in where it's coming out.
It's the seal while slide is out
It's really tight,but I'll post some pics

OK, gotcha. It's about 4-6 inches wide and attaches to the body of the camper itself? If so, you should be able to hit the RV dealer in your area and get some type of adhesive that they sell to put it back together. The stuff they sell is a lot stronger than what you can pick up at Home Depot or Wal-Mart.

i had a similar problem with mine.. the seal around that goes around the slide, the top had came off. the "clamps" if thats what you call them corroded. i just cleaned the inside of the gasket out and resealed it. closed the slide back on it and it has held ever since. the seal while it is open was still good. my local rv place sells new seals for pretty cheap.

OK, you have exactly the same setup, it looks like, that I have. There is a trim piece that cover all the screws on mine and attaches to the seal. You should be able to either drill new holes or as HOUTX01X said, use some good adhesive to attach them back. I would seriously look at trying to use both ideas since that is a high stress area.

i dont.. i wasnt really expecting it to be damaged. i normally check everything after every trip. i just happened to look up through the slide from inside and noticed it. that along with my a/c bolts a little loose. if you use the adhesive make sure you get all the junkout of it.. i had a lot due to the corroding of the fasteners.

I've ripped apart and re-did just about everything but a camper...but this just sceers me a little

I don't want to mess it up--I've never had something like this apart before.

If I could see a break down,I'd feel better and go for it

I just want this camper to last a long time..it's still like brand new- except sun faded decals on one side
