Sealing the wheel wells
I am not sure if this applies to HWH slides but on Valid's when the slide comes in a rod about 1-2 inches in diameter moves downward into the bays it may be from the floor I'm not sure. But the number 3 slide pin descends into the wheel well ,inside the tag axle.. there is a cover that covers the one in the wheel well. This keeps the pin clean and also keeps exhaust and road grime from getting in when the pin is down. The cover is made of plastic and is foamed in the wheel well which seals it. When my tire blew it destroyed the cover. The challenge was getting the foam to stick since I was spraying  the foam upward, the foam kept wanting to drip  down before it set. So I took those blue disposable shop towels and used those to help hold it up,till it set. The towel is irretrievably mixed in with the foam because it is soo sticky but I figured the paper towel wear off..
