    I checked mine after seeing this post earlier and no wear at all. I went through the entire rig, all 4 slides, right after I took delivery with slide lube.

    Found more damage today when I was lubing my slide seals.
    Upper corners of each slide outside frame have screws that poke through and cause slight tears as seen here.Click image for larger version.

    Also noticed damage to seals on top of each slide, caused by protruding screw heads.

    Put a dollop of sealant on each screw to see if that will help, hoping the sealant will dry before we leave tomorrow

    Had exact same problem on my 303, turned in to dealer for warranty repair, they fixed it. Has not happened again. This was on curb side slide correct? Mine was.

    Yes. I sent Jerry an email yesterday, he rogered up and will be sending me the strips.
    We couldn't be happier with GD service, haven't called/emailed that many times, but they've got right on it every time.

    Did they provide some info in regards to the installation of the new slide seals? It's a swipe on top that should flip over against the slide floor when extending/retracting. It looks like the original was installed too high and the swipe damaged when extending/retracting the slide.
