I used the link below. They want a premium for shipping FYI. Next time I order I will be ordering for all my seals so I only have to pay shipping once

Getting it off should be easy. I assume it is similar to my 2012. There are screws at each end holding the seal. Remove them, then you just peel the strip off. It is held on by its adhesive.

I took a piece of the seal to my local dealer and had him order the replacement. The logic being, if it was wrong, it was his problem. Plus he was cheaper than Trekwood.

The outside side wiper seals are of a design that slips over a metal extrusion, so you need to put a flat screwdriver to the inside to help it off the metal. I think the top seal is the same design. For my side seals, after I removed a screw at the top and bottom...I could grab the wiper flap and pull toward the side of the slideout to remove. One required the screw driver to get it started.

The wiper seals just push on to the metal flange and are secured by a screw at the ends. The bulb seals slide into the mating part of the slide flange, and the screws holding the corner plastic pieces need to be removed to allow the seals to slide out and new ones to be slid in. The seals are ordered by the foot, and come as a continuous piece. I am pretty sure they will be the same as mine on a 2012. This is the order for the seals I ordered 2 1/2 years ago from Trekwood and what I paid for them:



Product Quantity Total


Seal - Wiper - Off-Set TPE - Clip-On - 1225'/Bx [Keystone 186422]

36ft $123.12


Seal - Bulb - Extruded Slide In - Black & Gray - Thick Wall - 1000'/Bx [Keystone 313327]

36ft $55.40

Subtotal: $178.52 Shipping & Handling: $36.91
