depends on the level of deterioration whether they are salvageable.

Not pointing a finger at you, but you can tell who has high use of their RVs and who are 'grab & go' weekenders. Typically folks who use their RVs a lot, do the needed maintenance; weekenders don't. Cleaning and UV protection is critical; especially the rubber and plastic parts. There are plenty of high-quality products on the market. If you don't make the time to use them, you will be opening your wallet further doing repairs.

I have no suggestion since they are spent.

I'd replace. Not a fun job, but not terribly difficult.

If they are not doing the job, its time to replace. The water leakage will do more harm than the time spent replacing. Check out Steele Rubber for replacement. https://www.steelerubber.com/
