roof on slide, question

Just noticed this today. Never had this type material on slide. Any opinions.... I would think this would cause seal damage and leak eventually.

No, that is not normal. You need to get that looked at before the next rain storm. The cover material over the slide out seemed to have loosen up and it will probably ruin your seal and cause leaks.

Mine is smooth as a baby's bottom.
Rock has/had the same problem as you and has the same concern as well. I know he went in for a fix, but might have been distracted when his rig got hit in the lot.
If he doesn't chime in send him a PM.

Pull the slide in and get up on a chair or ladder to get a good view of it at the end of the slide.

I don't know why I'm seeing this now. It's the worst on the rear bunk slides. The ones I'm having problems with going in and out. Wonder if this is part of the binding problem. The only one that is smooth is the front bedroom slide. UGH!

Material is Dicor Diflex II. Same tpo material that's on the roof. Just a bad install. Pretty much cosmetic but would drive me nuts. Not sure if that'd cause the slide issue, but stranger things have happened.

Same exact issue as mine. All three slide are wrinkled but the dining room was the worst. Dealer pulled the side rail and removed some but not all of the wrinkles. In order to do it right the front Facia needs to be removed and I do not want that done. I have looked very close when full open and the seal does lay on top of the wrinkles but since the inside slopes up water should not get in. I also have slide toppers.

I just keep finding more stuff if u read my post on sealing the bottom I was putting silicone on all the bottom slide bottom seams and found two big wire bundle clamps just hanging ünder the kitchen slide. So far had to redrill four screws in bottom corners of rear cap. The screws they put in on the corner lower trim did not go into the metal and just bent it up.

Rock, I had one of the arms holding wiring under the bunk just hanging there. Had to drill a couple hole to reconnect. It seems that slide wrinkle expands some as it warms up outside. I just don't believe that is good for a seal over time. There's a older Jayco down the street and all is is perfectly smooth. Makes you wonder for sure. 2016 375 BHFS

At least we have two years of warranty. Believe me I will be watching my slide and Rv roof. Looks like I have a backing out screw under the roof TPO

Both of my main slides did the same thing. Not as bad as yours but nonetheless. Checked it this weekend and it's "de-wrinkled" if you will considerably. Not really sure the wrinkling is a "OMG" type of problem but you can always take it in.
