Lippert Solera Slider Slide-Topper Installation - 2018 Jayco Pinnacle Fifth Wheel- Video

Lippert Solera Slider Slide-Topper Installation - 2018 Jayco Pinnacle Fifth Wheel

Today on our 2018 Jayco Pinnacle fifth wheel, we will be taking a look at and installing the Solera Sliders slide-toppers. For our Jayco Pinnacle we're gonna need three different sized toppers to complete all of our slide outs. For our bedroom compartment in the front we'll be using an 11 and a half foot topper, for our driver's side living room compartment we'll be using a 14 foot topper, and for our passenger side slide out compartment we're gonna be using a 12 and a half foot topper. The awning fabric can extend up to 50 inches following your slide out. This will cover the top of your slide out and protect it from bugs, dirt, debris, and anything else that can gum up your seals up there that may cause some leaks or any of the components that affect it moving inward and outward.It automatically extends and retracts when you push out and pull in your slider. As far as your installation, you'll need to verify if your vehicle already has a slide-topper rail above it's slide out. more

Solera Slider Slide-Topper Installation - 2002 Itasca Suncruiser Motorhome

Today on our 2002 F53 Chassis Motor Home, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Solera 12.5' Slider or Slide-Topper in Black with Black Hardware, part number LCV000177334, as well as the Solera 7.5' Slider or Slide-Topper in Black with Black Hardware, part number LCV000165062.Here's what our Lippert Solera Slide-Out Awning is going to look like once we have it fully installed. Now, these are going to be specifically made for the slide-outs on our RV or our camper, and it's going to come in a wide variety of sizes. Here we have a 12.5' one for our living room, and then here on the other side we have a 7.5' one for the bedroom. The whole purpose of the slide-out awning is because whenever we have our pop-out out we want to make sure that no debris, any tree limbs, leaves, acorns, or anything else is going to get stuck in between and get caught in the track and possibly damage any of the hydraulic components or any gears inside. This is going to keep all that debris on top of it making sure it doesn't get inside that track, and it's also going to have a slight overhang, making sure it doesn't come in from the side either.Now, this awning is going to be in black with all black hardware so it's going to match nicely with everything, and the brackets and all the hardware is included. Now, one nice thing about the brackets is that it is going to be a universal bracket, and it is going to match most competitor brands' bolt pattern. more

Lippert Solera Slider Slide-Topper Installation - 2019 Keystone Springdale Travel Trailer

Today in our 2019 Keystone Springdale Travel Trailer, we're gonna be installing Solera Slide Topper. We'll be installing the 12 foot slider on our travel trailer here, but depending on your Springdale Travel Trailer's options, you may need a different length. So, you'll measure the length of your slide out and pick the appropriate size that will match. They're available in either black or white depending on your preference.Now, if you're working on a different trailer, you can use this video as a guide 'cause it's going to install the exact same way. This slide topper extends the entire length of your slide out, hanging off a little bit on each end to prevent any dirt, debris, and moisture from collecting up on top. That dirt, debris, and moisture that collects on top can cause damaging effects on your seals, which may in turn cause leaks inside your trailer. more

What happens is when you create that mold, this part of the slide out is going to slide in. more
