    Add Slide Out Covers?

    Hey all - recently went camping, therefore it rained everyday. Got to thinking that Slide Out covers would be a nice addition. I have a 2018 29BH Fifth wheel. Has anyone added covers to the slide out? Did the OEM add a reenforment strip behind the wall panel to attach the fabric? Being an light frame I know its a laminated wall....fiberglass, stroyfoam and a thin wood venneer on the inside. Hoping they added something to attach these to. Anyone know?

    Add Slide Out Covers?

    Love hate relationship.
    Great when youíre under the trees and keeping debris off the slides, love them.
    If youíre parked in the open and itís windy all day and night, hate them.
    Still wouldnít be without them though

    Had them installed before we took possession in early 2009. Well worth it unless you always camp in a treeless cow pasture. They also keep rain from pooling on top of a slide and finding its way inside if the seal isnít perfectly deployed.

    Never heard of anything about backing boards in the sidewall for slide toppers.

    Re: Add Slide Out Covers?

    I installed a cover on my Sundance 262 tt and like you said there are basically 3 layers in the wall. When i installed the

    rail that holds the cover I used a heavy duty caulking behind the rail then installed all of the screws. Before installing each

    screw I drilled a 1/8 starter hole just through the outside layer. This helped to prevent cracking of this outer coating.

    When I installed the roller to the slide out one of the screws punctured the electric wire that services the 12volt lights in

    the slide out. Trailer manufacturer error. there are a lot of youtube videos that show how to install the cover. Good Luck
