Jaeger-UniTek Intro­duces New AquaDi­vert­er™ for Use in Patent­ed Flip ‘N Seal® Seal­ing System

Accord­ing to Kyle Upp, Jaeger-UniTek RV Mar­ket Man­ag­er, “many OEM cus­tomers have con­vert­ed to Jaeger’s patent­ed, inte­grat­ed, one-com­po­nent, slide-out seal­ing sys­tem that improves instal­la­tion assem­bly oper­a­tions, reduces SKUs and required floor stor­age space, and ulti­mate­ly, elim­i­nates slide-out room leaks. Our sys­tem has been adopt­ed at such a rapid rate over the past two years dur­ing the pan­dem­ic that our cus­tomers began to ask us to invent a nov­el “cor­ner cup” which effec­tive­ly directs water from our seal to the exte­ri­or of the vehi­cle. It was a nat­ur­al exten­sion for our engi­neer­ing team to invent the AquaDi­vert­er™ which is designed to per­fect­ly mate geo­met­ri­cal­ly to our slide-out seal for a seam­less transition”.

Jason Cack­ley, Jaeger-UniTek Lead Appli­ca­tion Engi­neer, added “our expe­ri­ence in eval­u­at­ing, test­ing and spec­i­fy­ing proven engi­neered ther­mo­plas­tic poly­mers for auto­mo­tive seal­ing appli­ca­tions sig­nif­i­cant­ly con­tributes to our team’s abil­i­ty to cre­ate new RV seal­ing tech­nolo­gies for water man­age­ment appli­ca­tions. This exper­tise, com­bined with our RV Flip ‘N Seal® prod­uct line, played a sig­nif­i­cant role with invent­ing the AquaDi­vert­er™. Some nov­el design exam­ples include the use of stiff­en­ing ribs for increased flex­ur­al mod­u­lus to with­stand demand­ing loads and impacts, while cre­at­ing a “water-less” cup by incor­po­rat­ing a sloped bot­tom sur­face and “water troughs” for effi­cient water man­age­ment. Of course, our cus­tomers real­ly appre­ci­ate that we cre­at­ed an angled lip to mate seam­less­ly to Jaeger’s unique bot­tom pan geome­tries for sole source respon­si­bil­i­ty for their RV slide-out room sealing.”
