Torn Gasket



I have a leak on the driver's side slide. This leak manifests itself when the slide is in and there is a substantial rain event. When the slide isn out and it rains, no leak. A visual inspection revealed this tear in the upper front corner.

What is the best way to patch (& pray)?

Tnx!

It may be time to buy a new slide gasket; you want to keep water out of the RV for sure.

Bob, you need to start by cleaning all of that dirt out of there. With all the dirt that thing is a funnel. Go to an automotive store and show them the picture. I think it is 3M that makes a gasket repair goop and it comes in a tube.

Yes. I think the auto parts store called it "monkey snot"

That product is an adhesive, it is not a filler. It is not for exposed applications. I would use a black silicone, or windshield urethane. The ws urethane has unbelievable strength and adhesion. I don't know if it is available in sizes smaller than a standard caulking tube size.

Leak

Clean it up and try goop 6800 series. Check the seam that was stapled at the factory. I had to redo mine
