Rained like crazy last night and this morning. As predicted, the water drips down below the trim and into the slide it goes. A classic AS "eyebrow" water table would have been a smart move on top of these slides to protect them whilst sitting, though blasting through a storm on the highway will still suck water up into the top of the slide. Oh, by the way, the compartments were dry as a bone this morning!

That would be nice to have dry compartments.... The PO put down plastic grating mats in mine to keep things from sitting in the water. I am having new ones made next winter out of alum nex year by the same guy that made my fuel tank.

Yup, that's the only way to really fix the problem, my "repair" is a band-aid, at best, and something I'll have to keep a eye on.
