    Hi Everyone. New to this forum and refreshing on owning a travel trailer. We recently bought a 2007 Arctic Fox travel trailer. I've noticed that the slide out seal is very dry, and will not always fold into the direction of travel of the slide out? I tried spraying the seal with silicone spray but to no avail. Do I need to replace the seal or are there different avenues to pursue?
    Thank you in advance!

    welcome to the forum mishasta.I bought a roll of the imitation chrome and angled it from top inner side of slide to bottom outer of slide. It just sticks on and it will roll the seal right out as the slide goes out. Also helps carry water away from seal. If you need I can take a picture. Had it there now for 8 yr or so and works like a charm. Hope this helps.
