Yes!
Fortunately they are easily replaced, remove a screw on either end & it slides down off a plastic track, slide new on, put screws back in. But the goo left is a bit more difficult to remove.

Yes they do over time. Reorder on Amazon but measure what you need. I've replaced all of mine 2013 36RE. AP products 018-312-EKD D seal for 1" x15/16 35' roll. 69.94 last time I bought it.best of luck.

In just replaced the top ones on all of my slides. It was a 2013 31SL
I was able to purchase the D seals on Amazon in 35' lengths - which was just right to replace just the tops. Amazon Link
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The tops had silicone across the top that had to be sliced away so the gasket could be removed. I cleaned the area and reapplied clear silicone after the new installation and it looked great.

The sides and bottoms seals were fine but i treated them with Slide seal lubricant -that I also got on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Easy job - Good Luck

I have read in past posts that regular silicone caulk will not hold. Geocel product was recommended.

You are correct!
IMHO there's no where on a RV that I would ever use regular silicone caulk.
Dicor on the roof, Geocell most every where else.

For the roof you should be using the alpha roof products. I have been using the products below for the last 4 years with no issues or leaks.

We have a new 2020 4001LK and just drove down about 10 miles of a dirt road ... now the entire interior of the RV is totally covered with a thick blanket of dust ... what can we do to prevent this in the future? I would have thought the slides were better sealed for travel ...

No. The heaviest dust was on the floor nearest each slide base. There are rubber flaps underneith between the slide and frame but of course not where the slide gear frames are ... suspect this is the entry point. Maybe we can add a cloth or seal strip inside under the carpet for times that dirt/gravel travel is needed.
