Slide seal puller outers?

I have no clue what they are called but my slides have small white plastic slide seal puller outers on them and I'd like to add more as the seals don't pull out all of the way when the slides are put out. Does anyone know where I can buy these and what they are called? I can't find them anywhere. Thanks!

Also what model of camper do you have?

Baby powder will resolve your issues. Put the baby powder on a rag then powder the seals. Do this twice a year. Keeps them from sticking and you will find they come in and out easier when you mone the slide in and out.

Check out this Cowles t3402c European body molding on amazon. I just did all 3 of my slides and the rubber seals open and close perfect now.

I looked this up. Did you just put this on the sides or all over? And where on the slide did you place it... In the middle? Thanks.

With the slides open i put them about 1/4 of the way away from the rubber seals on both sides from top to bottom and I didn’t put any on the roof part

Awesome, thanks. I'm going to give this a try! Do the moldings feel hard?

They are firm with rounded edges on both sides so they want tear up the seals just clean area with rubbing alcohol and stick them on with the 3m tape thats on the back of the molding
