Slide covers   Discussions

Our slide covers are rotting out and have torn.  We asked our mechanic's garage to replace them but he is having issues locating them.  I called Monaco last Thursday and they told me they have a supplier and would update me when the supplier responds with the availability.  I have not received any information this week.  Has anyone replaced their slide covers?  If so, where did you find the replacements?

Our slide awning is getting to the point of replacement and a while back I called Carefree awning and they said there is a serial number on the roller at the rear of the awning that they can match the awning. Are you not a member of the IRV Vesta forum ? It is quite helpful as well. I have not seen you on any threads. Glad to get to know you.

I just had to replace the entire slide cover mechanism, and the same company (Carefree?--the names on it) still makes the same unit.  so they'll have covers that fit.

Hey Smokey, i had the rot problem on the front edge that is exposed. you have another foot or so still on reel when slide is out, so what i did was pulled it off and brought to upholstery shop and cut the rot off, about 8 inches and re-stitched the rod seam and reinstalled.
