We have 3 slides, the seals on top sometimes does not come out .I sawother brands with the same problems. Some tech on a different brand of trailer told him/her to use a rubber or chrome body side molding you can get at any auto parts store.. It's about 1/2 wide, it comes in rolls about 20', this sounds like a good idea and I would like to use the rubber molding. I e-mailed Randy at CrossRoads and ask him if theadhesive back would have any effect on the rubber roof(Dicor). Randy suggested I call Dicor which I have and Dicor says I need to call the Auto trim company and ask them.

My question is has anyone used the rubber trim molding,if so, didyou find out if the adhesive would have an chemical effect on the Dicor rubber?

I noticed mine don't always come out as well. I have washed the rig this way and there was no affect on leaking into the rig. Truthfully, I am not convinced it matters which way they are as long as they are tight against the slide. Maybe a driving rain with wind.....

You are probably correct, but sometimes the little leaves & seeds from the trees land on our slide and they come on inside by laying on top of the slide. I presume that with the seals extended out they may do a better job of sweeping.

That is one of the big reason to have the awning over the slides
