2019 View slide out awning

I have a 2019 View 24D, the slide out awning collects rain water. When I close the slide out I get a wall of water. I have taken a ladder and sponge and drained it...when I remember. I am looking for a solution.
Thanks, Ken

Hi, Ken. Mine collects some water, also, but I have noticed that usually most of it will drain off one end or the other when it gets too much water in it. There are a couple of options. Some people put an inflatable under the awning to prevent water collecting there. After seeing how mine works, I'm thinking that just pulling down on the front or back edge to drain it before retracting the slide would help. You could also hang or set a weight on the front or back edge to facilitate draining. Just remember to remove it before retracting the slide. While I find there is usually some water remaining in there after a rain, it's not enough to cause me worry. If I get concerned that there is a lot, I'll run the slide in then back out to clean it off. It seems that the awning is just not angled enough to prevent water from collecting in there.

My water sits right in the middle for the slide out awning which is around 11 feet long. What ever I position under the awning would have to be in the center and hopefully drain to the sides. Some kind of inflatable may be the answer. Thanks

Having a coach with four slides and related toppers caused me to get creative. Using a painters pole, some wood, and an old broom, I made an angled sweeper to push the water off the topper.

Water on topper?

Unless you are closing up for the season, and dont want ANY moisture trapped in the roll up, why bother with lift ups or sweep offs? When you retract the slide the roll up of the topper facilitates the elimination of any pooled water.

I believe this action is what commonly cause floor rot in the corners of slides. Combine water run off from slide toppers with inadequate protection at the bottom corner of the coach/slide, and floor rot is inevitable. JMHO!

We have a 2016 35F with the same problem. We simply lower or raise the front jacks to make the RV unlevel causing the water to run off prior to bringing in the slide.

Water Collecting on Slide Topper

Depending upon the length of the slide topper; use Pool Noodles and make a tripod with the noodles & tape with masking tape. Slide under slide topper to the middle prevent the sag with the water. Don't forget to remove before bringing slide in.
