Wiper seal repair

I need to have one of the wipers seals replaced on one of my slides. Is this a difficult repair or is it something I can do myself. I have looked at it and it appears that it should be pretty easy but I just don't want to tear into it and find a surprise and then have to wait for days to get it into the shop and risk leaks

I did a wiper seal replacement on the side of my slide on my previous trailer. The seal on my Coachman was an "H" shaped wiper seal that went over the wall edge. The exterior had a "D" bulb seal that slid onto a groove. The interior wiper "H" seal had an adhesive strip and was stapled to the interior wall.
Can you post a pic of the area that needs repaired. Did you find the exact replacement seal yet?

Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand all the problems... LOL

Very hard to tell from the pic you posted on how it is installed. The hardest part will be getting to it from the inside.
This does not look like the seal I replaced so I cannot give you detailed instructions.

Maybe this link will help you decide what you have.
It is a seller of different RV parts and this is the pages for slideout seals.
