Depending on what kind of slide system you have, you can adjust the stop so the slide will go all the way out to get a good seal.
If you can post what kind it is or pictures of the mechanism Im sure someone here can help you.

The Lippert video was very helpful for me last year when I was adjusting mine.

Even though my slides are Old Dexter slides the same technology was used to make them. The adjustment methods were the same, just that it looked slightly different.

The only thing is, it was funny to see the star of the video just grab that mock up and move it. Mine takes several people and a crow bar to move it sideways.

.I have the Dexter chassis slide out as well is there any way you could tell me what size the seal is that goes all the way around the slide out that's what I'm trying to find out now hopefully that'll stop the water from coming in completely but it needs to be replaced because there's not much of a seal there now and I just need the size so I can buy it and put it on. Thank you.

Dexter chassis,which has sold partly to Lippert. I have called jayco I've called Dexter I've called leopard Jacob said that their computers were down and didn't have that information for me on the size of the seals so I'm still in a conundrum trying to find out what I should do.

While I am no RV slideout seal expert, I suggest to check out the following link as there are multiple slideout seals available and these people (in the link) claims theirs are the best due to the design. However, you can check out Amazon and search for "rv slide out seal" and find many different lengths and sizes (commonly 15/16"). I don't believe you have to use a particular seal to replace your existing seal.

What I would suggest, measure the gaps and determine how large they are and order a seal that exceeds the gaps in your slide. I would also check for any special requirements for the seal such as perhaps a special channel the seal must fit into. Also, on my RV (which is older but similar to those made today regarding the seals) there is a gutter above the slideout that directs any rain water from the roof and above the slideout to be redirected away from the top of the slideout. That in itself doesn't stop the rain water from coming in from the slideout roof itself however, I try to have the slideout side of the RV (I just have one large slideout) slightly leveled away from the RV itself so any slideout roof rainwater drains away from the seal. While many RV's are made where to be useable inside the slide(s) need to be out, mine isn't that way so I keep the slide closed when I know heavy rains are coming. ~CA
