slide and water on rug

Got the slide topper installed.
Hoping for more goodies while at Good Sam Rally this weekend.
Maybe a fantastic fan for the bedroom

Hey, we had the same problem. Never had a slide before. Are the slide toppers expensive to buy? Is it something you can do yourself, or is it best left to the dealers? I think I want one...

Cheers,
JMR

it cost us appx 600.00 with installation in Canada where everthing is overpriced.
I beleive the topper was a little over 400
it doesn't look very difficult to install at all if you are handy but all I know to do is clean teeth

We haven't had a water problem. However, I have a short step ladder and sweep off the top of the slide before pulling it in. I can easily see where debris could get under the gasket and tear it up when retracting. Our slide does not extend very far and we often leave it in for overnight stops.

Thanks Boubou. I am also in Canada, so I know all about pricing! I think the "no shipping" to Canada is even worse. Anyway, it will be something I will get before fall. I don't want to be sweeping and towelling roofs. Just got out of a tent trailer, so I'm done with that. Ain't nobody got time for that!! Cheers!

I installed my slide topper by myself. It's a Carefree from pplmotorhomes. Had the same problem with a wet roof. It still gets a little dusty and sometimes leaves get in there but the main purpose for me was water shielding and hot sun shading.

slide and water on rug

we spent 3 nights in Syracuse at the Good Sam Rally.
Thursday was extremely wet (standing in water) and when I retracted the slide in on Sunday, there was still water on top. I watched the water come down when the slide came in but never thought to pay attention to the sides. Turns out, there was enough water up there, some still found it's way into the camper. Not nearly as much as before the slide topper but still a bit. The water only gets in with the slide in, coming in from the top.
Lesson learned, slide topper helps but I still need to be vigillant.

Boubou,
I wonder if the water was laying in a pool on top of the awning? Some folks put a chunk of foam or some such stuff, under the slide awning to prevent pooling. Of course you need to pull the foam out before you retract the slide. Just a thought.......
