Srayed the bedroom slide seals with 303 yesterday. Let it sit open most of the day and when I retracted it last evening it glided in like it was on ice. No rubbing noises at all.

I used the stream nozzle on the 303 stood on the ground started from the top and wiped the excess off as it reached the bottom. Sprayed the seal under the room also. It really did a job.

The living room slide gets done today. Safe Miles

Did you do this from outside?

Is there a seal on the top of the slide? If so, how do you plan on doing it.

yup , just stood on the ground outside. No didn't do the top, but I would bet you could wet a rag with 303 and put the slide part way out and do that from the inside even if you had to stand on a step stool. Good Luck

Yes, the rubber seals around the slide out. If you have never heard a rubbing/noisy sound when you have put your slides in or out. Congratulations.

There have been many posts about this noise and baby powder is suposed to be another fix. I just found that 303 did a job for me, with no noise when the slide went in or out.. Good Miles

I'm not familiar with 303. It may make the slide work easier but you should be sure it doesn't contain any petroleum products that can attract and hold dirt.

At GNR earlier this year the Winnebago rep warned against using anything other than a silicone product on slide gaskets, especially on coaches with full paint. It seems the dirt collected on some lubricants can scratch the clearcoat.

Do a search on this forum or on the internet for 303. It is highly recommended for rubber, tires and many other uses. It is a first rate product and won't harm the rubber on your coach. Check it out.

Hikerdogs,
303 has no petroleum products. Great stuff!

Best,

As posted in another thread, I had a vertical slide seal problem on the bedroom wall. Winnebago rep said, "Use corn starch!"

303 is good also as far as I'm concerned.

Couldn't agree more, I've been using it on our rig since I bought it. Very good stuff on the slide out seals.

Been using it on all things rubber on the exterior of the coach since new. Works like a charm, no problem.

I hate to sound like I work for 303, but if you haven't used it, you should. Yes it's a little pricey, but it's the only product I've ever seen recommended by name in manuals by so many manufacturers of everything from hot tubs to boats to rv's and even Dicor. It provides nearly 100% UV protection and makes everythink look new - even glass and automotive finishes which is why I like it so much better than Armor All. GET SOME! I've seen it for sale in RV dealers, some dept stores, etc. I think the cheapest way to get it is by EBay at about 50 bucks a gallon.
