So after a year of searching and looking we finally found the right replacement for our 2001 Fleetwood Terry 26H. A used 2015 Coachmen Apex 269RBSS. Really nice shape, almost like new, I feel good and think I got a good deal. There is an issue where the bottom of the rubber gasket that seals the slide is torn in half and it lets a small amount of water in. It has done minimal damage but needs to be addressed right away. Has anyone ever done the double gasket on one of these and if so is it good,bad or ugly to replace. I am experienced in construction and have a garage full of tools. Im just wondering if this is something better left to those that know. Wadda ya think? Thanks

I have replaced them in both of my slides. There are quite a few types available, and I suppose any number of them could be made to work. I opted to find the exact replacement.
I figured it would go smoother that way.
Shop hard for the best price. Many places are pretty proud of this stuff. I did manage to get a good deal. The actual job was pretty straight forward. I don't think you will have any trouble with it

It would get more response, if you would post a picture. There are several types of seals, and different types of wipers. In my case, the wipers are stapled on, and the D-bulb seal slides into a track on the wiper. My D-bulb seals are very easy to change.
