Rock guard "seals"
We have a 2014 20' FC. This morning I was looking out the curved side front bedroom windows and saw a lot of leaves and such. So, I got busy and opened the rock guards, cleaned them out and proceeded to lock things back up.
Then I started looking at how the curved window rock guards on the sides fit up against the trailer. Basically, they don't. There is a large enough gap to get my hand through at the top on the left, and all of my fingers through on the right. The sides don't seal either, but interestingly, the bottom seals just fine. So that means that when stuff falls down from the trees, it can get behind the rock guards just fine, but can't get out. There was a gap in the bottom seal to let the water out, but it was still a bit moldy down there from the trapped leaves, which isn't good.
This makes me wonder what the seals are even for, since the whole rock guard panels weren't close to fitting snug up against the trailer. And I'm wondering if I shouldn't just pull them (the seals) off altogether or try to add enough rubber to actually seal them, or maybe pull some of the rubber seal off the bottom to let things escape. I guess the bottom rubber seals might prevent rocks and dirt from flying up from the TV tires, but I kind of doubt it.
Sealing would require quite a lot of rubber, and I doubt my ability to get it to stay in place anyway.
I guess I could also just ignore it. What say you?
