Country Coach Allure slide seal replacement.
Hi everyone. We have a new to us 2000 CC Allure #30476. It is in excellent shape although I have noticed a wet spot on the floor at the corner of the slide. The weather striping looks like it needs replaced. Has anyone done this? I had a local guy look at it and he said the box may need to be removed and I don’t want to go that route if not needed. I have the seal from CC and just want to know if there are any special tricks.
Is it the front slide leaking? If so, there is a small trough at the front of the slide. You have to remove the accordion cover that you see when the slide is closed. The little trough is glued to the wall and the glue comes loose, the trough pulls away from the wall and you get the leak.
The way it works is, the water is supposed to run along the bottom sidewall of the slide into the trough and then out via a hose. It is an easy fix if you remove the driver’s seat and that little curtain and then pull the slide in about half way.
One thing to do when it is raining, is to pull the slide in in steps. This gives the rain time to run off instead of staying on the slide. If you have the rear slide,there is a trough across the entire length of the slide and by pulling in the slide all at once, the trough over flows and out onto the carpet.
