Slidout Rubbers ???

Resurrecting this thread. I saw a Heartland TT at the campground and there they were. This is what is used to flip the seals. Now, I have searched the Internet, Lowes, Ace to no luck. I am posting the pictures hoping someone has found such an item.
A small strip1/2" to 3/4" wide with a small 1/8" lip about 6 inches long. More eyes looking might net something. Photos were taken with permission.
I think 3 or 4 strips will be necessary in the absence of a window.

I found this quote.

"All, I contacted Heartland for the slide out seal flippers. The part number is 31107, and is $1.377 a linear foot, + shipping and handling ($9.10 in my case).

It comes with an adhesive strip on the back and cuts easily with kitchen scissors. I applied 1 ft long strips on each side of our 4 slides, about 2" down and 4" back from the outer wall of the slide. Will see if they help, immediately it looks like they will."

We have the problem every time the slide goes in and out on the drivers side of our 3171. Just found some auto trim that should work from our local PepBoys.
