I was bored today so I decided to clean the 5ver

I was walking around the camper today looking over things and the white rubber seals around the slides were really dirty and was bothering me so I decided todo a little cleaning. I got one slide done only 2 more to go. Here are some before and after pics. Looks alot better now.

out of curiosity, what did you use to clean them. Mine look like yours did.

Looking good, a little elbow grease gets it done.

What cleaner did you use? I was actually thinking of replacing mine with black seals due to the fact that I haven't been able to get them looking as good as yours.

Thanks, Bruce

Use WD-40. It will clean them slicker then a whistle. Very little elbow grease either. Then wash and rinse them, let dry and apply a coat of silicone.

Looks great I could never figure out why they used white seals, because they are soo much harder to clean than the black.

Sorry for the delayed reply been camping since I posted and havent been on here. I used an all purpose cleaner from Adam's Polishes and ALOT of elbow grease. This stuff has a lot of good uses. I also used the wife's new tooth brush that she just got from the dentist, worked pretty good. Thanks for the WD-40 idea I will try that on my other 2 slides.
