No problem. In fact our 177 came with the track already installed. I did a right up in the mod forum I think..

ok here are the pictures,  Upon further inspection I found that the bottom seal is pinching out the bottom and I can wiggle my finger between the seal and the fascia at the top right corner which was the original cause for my concern.  That cant be good.  My understanding from speaking with someone at Forest River is that you shouldn't be able to do this.  NONE of this was an issue a few weeks ago nor was this noticed when we bought it last month.

You may just need an adjustment to the slide mechanism. Don't know if that's a DIY deal or not or how you would do it.
Have you sent those pictures to your dealer or to Forest River and asked them what to do? If you're not far from your dealer, I'd take it there.

Truthfully.. If the seal is making contact all the way around, which it seems to be, I wouldn't get to worked up about it.
