Slide-out maintenence

Apparently it’s normal to have water pour into the house when moving the slide in after a heavy rain. Hmmm. I’m not too thrilled with this, especially if the carpet doesn’t dry quickly.

I’ll have to remember to squeegy off the top before moving.

I also see that spiders are comingin from the gaps between rubber and metal on the slide. Not sure I can fix that. Perhaps I need to apply baby oil more often to soften the rubber. I haven’t done this yet, but it may be time. We’ve had some hot days, which seems to effect all the plastics, glues, and rubbers outside.
