Slideout Rubber Seal under floor

Anyone know why my "bottom" rubber seal keeps getting sucked in (about 3 feet of it) when retracting the kitchen slide? (Bottom of slide and rubber seal seem to be clean) We normally only operate this slide when we are parked and level.
I noticed this when the slide was out - rubber is kinked in a few places, then when retracting the slide, rubber does not hold in place, but flips towards the inside.

This seal was replaced back in March at the factory - and since my warranty ends Wednesday this week, I was just wanting to ask the group what your thoughts/suggestions might be.

Thanks!!!

Hum. My seals do not appear to be as tight against the bottom off the slideout as yours. I use rubber slide out protection spray on all my rubber seals 2 times a year. It seams to keep them in good condition and working properly.

I was thinking about that "protecting spray", but I have full carpeting in the living room, which is where this is happening. Maybe someone has a picture of how theirs is mounted so I could get an idea of how much lower I can move it down. Thank you!!!

The height of your seals look correct, it looks like the rubber had a reaction to a chemical and swelled but that is a guess on my part

I think Dan is onto something. That seal appears to have lost its rigidity. The only thing that does that is age or chemicals or both.
