Has anyone else had problems with slide covers? Apparently my covers have no drop, (angled), and collect rain water, causing them to stretch and flap in wind. We had them tightened, but problem with water collecting persists. I believe design was bad, causing owners to be required to replace slide covers after less then one year, and of course out of pockets because Redwood will not cover replacement. Any suggestions or comments? Thank you.

Slides are taller on these new trailers, impacting pitch. Try somof those blow up wedges that go in there maybe?

Our RL slide covers on the the street side sag too! We had covers on our MH and never had problems. I think that the pitch is not great enough to remove the water. I think with our high slide outs you shouldn't! Use a cover. My mistake too! Live and learn!

We had slide covers on our Montana Big Sky and had the water problem where we had to put something between slide roof and cover to keep the water from pooling. Haven't had them on the two units after that.
