This picture isnt the greatest but heres what I am trying to describe. This may be normal, but my previous camper had the same gap all around where the slide meets the body. My new trailer has a small gap up top where you can barely see the rubber seal underneath, and a gap big enough at the bottom you can get your finger behind it. It still seals up as it touches the rubber gasket so I think it might be ok. Any suggestions. My dealer is an hour away so I dont want to go up there if I dont have to

From what I can see, it looks normal to me. Our slide on our Everest looks like that.

If it isn't leaking, probably leave it alone...
If it is a Lippert Slide and you want to adjust it, here is how.
Scroll down to page 9.

That link is for electric operated slide with a stop can.

Got a link for hydraulic operated slide with piston?
My curbside slide closes tighter at top then bottom.........no leaks/fully seals in/out but when in bottom sticks out a bit.

Do you have the same gap in the front? In pic it looks like it's tight against the trim piece.Mine looks the same as yours. Five years and no problems.


Other half is camping with the angels,Riding alone for now.

No leaks at all and it appears that it extends and retracts as it should. Thanks for the replies
