Hi my name is Robert....

IF you are talking about the rubber seal on the outside that makes contact with the room you should not have to remove the slideout, I would run the room out a few inches and if the seal is screwed on I would use a long bit so you can get at the screws if that is an issue. IF you have an awning on the slideroom that may need to be pinned and then put on the roof while you do the repair. If you still need more help please send me some photos of whet you are dealing with and I might have some more direction..... Robert
