The sidewall behind the front cap and the seam under the bedroom slide moves upward about 1/2" when I hook to my tow vehicle. I cannot keep the caulk seal between the sidewall and L-molding at the bottom of the sidewall. The doorside sidewall moves upward but not as far. Does anyone else have this problem? If, so please let me know what you did to stop the movement.

OK I am not sure if this is any help but how much flex is in the pin box. Take a look at this post from the cruiser pages some time ago. I think that is to much movement and could be a frame problem

We had the same problem on our Kingston. Randy at the factory has seen this before and fixed it by adding a wiper seal and piece of trim. It looks good. I will post a picture next week once I get to the fifthwheel.

Did this procedure stop the sidwall from moving or does it just cover the gap when the sidewall moves? If they attached the strip with screws does it move with the sidwall? If it is not moving with the sidewall and the sidewall is still moving what is preventing the screws from breaking, pulling out or cracking the fiberglass sidewall?

It does not stop the wall from moving, It just stops the water from getting in the gap. I have not had a problem with the screws, but I may not have had as much movement as you have.

Thank you for your help. I have a few more questions. When did you have this done? Has the gap increased? I had no gap and now I have a 1/2" gap. I have had someone else tell me that they had this done to their camper and they still get water in the gap when they pull in the rain. Did they seal the molding by the cap? What stops the rubber strip from flipping up when pulling?

34ck the seal sounds like a band aid to get you past the warranty and passing on the problem. If you are getting a gap when you are taking weight off the legs and on to the pin box sounds like a frame issue. Take pictures and take lots of measurements to support your issue.

good luck

Thank you, I agree with you. Band-Aid!! If the sidewall does not stop moving it is not fixed.

Like I said I do not think that the gap I had was as big. When Randy at the factory repaired it, he said this is something that happens with the Kingston and Seville (same frame). I have not had any water coming in and the seal does not look like it moves at all.
