Slide gasket replacement

I have 2005 Georgetown XL 359 TS. The wardrobe slide vertical gasket is torn and needs replacing. Is that a DIY job or do I need a professional?

Someone suggested the slide might need to be removed. Any thoughts on that?

Can you post a photo of the tear? There are several styles of seal, and some are multi-component. Many have a bulb that can be replaced separate from the wiper as well. So a picture might help give you guidance.

If you Google RV slide seals you will find many manufacturers.



Here is a link to Camping World who also sells different seals.

Also here is one RV seal catalogs I found.

Good luck

If the seal is just ripped and no chunks missing you can save yourself some bucks and aggravation by super gluing it back together.
