ZipDee Sleeve Leak

The aluminum tube that the ZipDee awning roles up in, stretches flat when the awning is in use. There are several seam like hinged areas that allow this to occur.
There are a couple of leaks along those folding seams. Allows water to drip down the side of the trailer in a rain. I have to be careful about what is leaning up against the AS in those under awning regions.
Is there any way to seal those?

I would suspect the awning rail rather than the case.

It's the case. I can see where the water runs. I sealed the rail just to be sure.
Doesn't seem to be any way to repair this.

I'm sure it can be "repaired", but I'm not sure if it is worth the effort. But you are in Floridea and I am in the desert. Maybe someone knows a better way but you could try squeezing the case hinges together and/or disassembling the case and adding silicone inside hinge and reassembling. This is just a semi-educated guess on my part off the top of my head. Maybe someone else may have a better idea.
