NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Texas Innovators today introduced the Slide-out Boot, a virtually maintenance-free cure for leaky RV slideouts.
“Slideouts offer RVers an added measure of comfort and leisure, just the types of things they want in a home away from home,” said Eddie Martinez, CEO of Texas Innovators.
“The problem is that slideouts are prone to leakage. To combat the problem, manufacturers install seals, drip rails, or water troughs to divert and capture rainwater,” he added. “These water-catching devices are usually mounted on the inside of the RV, which makes overflow into the living space a constant reality for many campers.”
Martinez said leaking can cause mold and water damage to occur inside the RV as well as in the unit’s sidewalls.
Once installed at a dealership, the Slide-out Boot makes it impossible for water to enter the coach. It attaches to the railing against the wall, goes under the molding and is stapled to the front of the box. When the slideout is extended, the boot forms a water-tight seal around the room. When the slideout is retracted, the material simply folds out of the way.
The urethane-coated, water-repellent storm shield comes in 12 colors and custom coloring and camouflage is also available. The company offers a special window screening that is also water resistant.
The Slide-out Boot comes with a two-year limited warranty.
