Our 2006 MH has been in storage for about 3 years.
it is in an unheated shed, in the pacific northwest.
mild and kinda wetweather.
Anyway should we get the slideout seals lubricated?
anything else non engine related that should be done.
supposedly there are no mice etc in the shed.
other seldom used vehicles are there too.
thanks

I lubricate my seals regularly. I would also do maintenance on the RV roof.

The main thing to worry about is the rubber of the seals adhering to the metal/fiberglass of the slide out room. Like a car door seal that has been sitting for years. When you open, the seal tears. THEN see about lubing and treating the seals. Doug
