Chaparral storage compartment seal

Can anyone with a Chaparral 360IBL or similar post up a pic of the main basement storage door seals? Mine had no seal whatsoever... the compartment doors rattle a lot and after a real hard rain a few weeks back I had water standing in the plastic portion of the storage bay... thinking someone forgot to install my seals?

For the time being I installed some foam rubber weatherstripping, but would like a better rubber seal if in fact something is supposed to be there.

Call your dealer or call the 800 number for the factory. I believe the guys name is Pete.Should be able to fix you up. Mine on my 370FL leaks too and it has the seal on it.

To dark for me to take a picture here, I will post one in the AM if that is ok.

If so any angle you need for sure?

There might be a pic or two in my photo album, feel free to take a look.

What's the white valve in the middle with the "Bypass" label? Mine doesn't have that.

I.ll chime in too on the levelers. They are just great. Rock soldid feeling and no movement. Besides I like the look on neighbors faces watching it level out while I go about finishing the outside hook ups
