Wiper seals ripping on slideouts

We have a 2020 Cruiser Aire fifth that continuously rips the slide out seals. We have them replaced a couple times now and really believe it is an issue with the slide outs themselves. The slide outs seem to bulge out in the middle portion and you can take your hand on push the sides in in that area but there is still a space at the top and bottom sections.

We have extended warranty coverage on the slide outs themselves, but not on the seals.

Has anyone else experienced this type of issue and if so, how was it handled with your dealer.

Thanks in advance

we have a 2021 cruiser air cr28rd and the inside wiper seals on our LR slide tear out while the outside ones occasionally come untucked up near the top. I am curious to know if you found a solution for this.

When you put your slides either out, or in, do you check them about half way thru the move to see if they are in the right position at that point in the move?
If they go out, or in and are partially turned when they get to the end of the slide movement, it can raise heck with them.

Factory recommended using Pledge on the wipers. Helps them slip easily. May help.

we probably dont check them much during activation but when we are at home and have them partially out for maintenance is when we can see them in action. we dont leave the slides partially out for any long period of time. we'll try the pledge.

Wiper seals ripping on slideouts

Thanks for the replies. We have not found a solution yet, but tomorrow we take our unit for an assessment at a dealer. I do check the slides at a halfway point and usually have to manually flip the wiper seals into position as well as tuck them back into the grove, particularly at the top.

Had on slide wiper that kept coming off on my 2020 Grand Design Reflection, and while not the same brand, I doubt the wipers are much different. I finally bought some industrial heavy duty double stick tape and used that to replace the wiper. Left it in the open position to hold it together for maximum pressure to ensure good join of glue and the side. So far it has held up.

my plan is to add a small amount of silicone to the slot they fit in. then reinsert and let dry before moving the slide. in a few more weeks I will dewinterize and that will be a part of this years make ready.

It is all about the maintenance and care of the seal and the surface it runs on.
I use slide seal conditioner to keep them clean and soft. Always keep the side of the slides clean.
Mine always fold over as designed.
