This photo is intended to show how the d-seal is pop-riveted to the aluminum angle iron and the attachment of the angle iron to the motorhome. It pretty much attaches in the same manner as the original wiper seal. Had to pierce the seal in order to place a washer on the end of each pop rivet to keep the seal in place. The d-seal also has it's own adhesive strip. Some of the seal has pulled away from the pop rivets and my fix is to use super glue to reattach it in order to keep from having to remove the entire seal to repair. If I ever remove it to replace the seal I'm going to super glue or use contact cement on the entire length to get better adhesion.
This photo shows how the seal is attached to the motorhome at the ends. Had to remove the angled wood blocks but they were just screwed on anyway so it wasn't a big deal. I used a 2" x 2" piece of angle iron at the ends in order to keep the d-seal in the same position relative to the slide.
A view of the entire seal on the bottom of the slide. The d-seal is actually compressed against the bottom of the slide so it makes much better contact with the slide. Seal is much better.. no drafts and no access for critters.
The splice of the two eight foot sections using 1" x 1" angle iron.
I have a patent pending on this design. (lol)
