Rubber window seal gasket

Noticed yesterday on our new 321rsts that the rubber seal on the outside of the window on the door side slide was hanging by both ends.....
It's the window next to the theater seats so it's the slide up style rather than the frameless. I pressed it back into place but got to wondering if it should have been caulked or siliconed in place. Looks like the slide rubber may be the culprit in pulling the casket off.
Any ideas you care to share?
Thanks.

Your slide out needs adjusted. It is probably set to close to the wall and when you bring your slide in or out the widow seal is being pulled out. At least that was the problem I had.

I'm hauling mine to the dealer tomorrow morning for just that problem. I'm told it takes about an hour and considerable "manpower" to adjust the slide. We'll see. But I also was getting a window seal pulled out by the slide seal.

Easy to adjust / fix, but yes, you gotta have manpower to move the slide box.

Got my slide adjusted this week - the dealer also glued the window seal in with some silicone. I mentioned this in another tread - but all of the bolts holding the ends of the slide rams to the outside wall of the slide were only finger tight.
Dealer wound up doing a complete alignment of the slide and then tightened everything.

Dealer was fantastic about this and did the work quickly while I waited.
LOVE my dealer - Anchor RV near Atlanta.

Adjusting the slide is on my list for tomorrow. Window gasket pulled out a few weeks ago and thought it was just loose. After reading on here I checked and the slide is very close on the back and the gasket doesn't even touch on the front.

Did some research and it looks like 4 bolts and a bit of grunt work so going to try it myself instead of another warranty trip to the dealer.

Just take something to mark the existing location of the 4 bolts. Draw around them with a sharpie or paint pen. This way you know for sure how much you've moved the box, and this ensures the rails are still even. You know you need 1/2", or whatever, then there's the starting point to see that much movement at the bolts. It'll get you close.

It's easiest to move with the slide partially extended, or retracted. There's a sweet spot where it's easier to move kind of balanced on the Teflon wear strip.

BigJohn gives good advise - my tech's marked the location first - then loosened the bolts, then used a big plumbers hammer to tap the brackets the amount they wanted.

Of course - today I go to the storage lot to show my new RV to a friend and the slide won't run out. The motor just spins. I'm sure it's something simple but since its underwarranty and the dealer is closeby - it's going back out on Monday.
