Part number for D seal above main slide on 3950?

I see that the D seals have turned to mush and / or completely disintegrated above the LR and BR slides.

Is there a part number or spec for replacement? It appears to be standard 1x1" D seal but my local dealer says there are 4 or 5 different types.

Here's the page on seals for my Voltage 3200:
Trekwood RV Parts - Voltage / 2013 / Rubber / Seal

Put in your own year & model, and you should find what you need.

I cut a piece off the end. This is what it looks like:



It's a plastic backing with a rubber boot. A few inches from this piece, the topside of the rubber is just plain GONE! Sun damage I guess.

On my last trailer I had to replace some D seals. Turns out Lazydays-Tucson had them in stock. Check with your RV parts dealer.

Found a 35' roll at my local RV dealer. Going to put it on today.

I going to make a point of regularly putting weatherstrip treatment on these pieces in the future. Of all the weatherstrip, they're most exposed to the sun.

Installed the new top seal on the LR & BR slides. Discovered that 3 or the 4 screws holding the top of the vertical seals had pulled through the plastic backing. Certainly creating a possible water leak.

The two top screws on the front of the LR slide h bracket are missing. Don't know if they've pulled out or if the heads have just popped off.

Both are a common problem, seems Dutchmen can't find workers that understand how to set the correct torque value on the pneumatic drivers.

If 5 is a good setting, 10 must be twice as good.

I found a broken screw head on the ground when we were at Bristol. I looked all over the living room slide, but didn't find where it came from.

Did you look under the slide? Lots of screws there.
