RE: Leaking Schwintek slide rail

Never dealt with it but.... my suggestion if it is possible. Remove screws from the rail. How far can you pull the rail out from the slide? Is it enough to get Butyl tape behind it? Place 1 inch pieces of butyl tape behind the rail were the screws will go back in through them. If that is where your leak is it should fix the problem.I would not do this since it may cause the rails to extend further out and cause problems with the fixed gears. Plus you may be limited as the screws get closer to the slide interior position. Maybe OK but I'd get professional advice or help before proceeding. Have you considered that the water may be moving around the lower slide edges on the bottom due to rig tilt or wind? Don't think it's coming from the outside. We took a hose and let water run down the side from about 6 inches above the rail for about 5 minutes or so. Didn't appear to be leaking. Then checked again a few minutes later and you could see a damp spot.

RE: Leaking Schwintek slide rail

Pretty sure it's the rail. We have sprayed water on the side of the slide just around the rail and have seen the water start to show up.

Leaking Schwintek slide rail

Have a schwintek slide that leaks at the lower rail and gets the bottom side of the slide wet. I have caulked all along the rail and the mounting screws but some how water still gets thru to the bottom. Done some web searching but haven't been able to find any definitive fixes. Any ideas? Thanks
