Boxer Sliding Door

Post by rgermain on Mon Jul 03, 2017 7:44 pm

I have been having problems opening the sliding side door on our Warwick Boxer based.

I would put it down to the hot weather we have had of late. There is a black rubber line on the metal door, from the seal around the opening, which makes opening almost impossible from the outside.

Has anyone had this and if so is there a simple solution?

PS thanks for all the work in getting the site back to normal.

Rub talc or French chalk all around the rubber seal. Worked a treat on the rubber seals of my caravan windows when they had a tendency to stick in the heat.

Thetford maintenance spray is good with sticky rubber type sealing strips (this is the spray that Thetford recommend for toilet cassette maintenance).

Thank you for all the advice. I am going to give them a try tomorrow.

Must have had a senior moment, as I recall using silicone spray on my Mothers conservatory windows all those years ago and it worked a treat.

I have used silicone spray on various bits of the van and it definitely makes a difference, just didn't think about the seals.

Use this stuff on all the rubber, makes it softer as it does not dry out.

No more sticky doors at the moment, used Silicone spray on the rubbers, thank you.
