Slide Out seal/gasket

I have a 2003 Rockwood 5th wheel, model 8281 SS. I want to replace the seal around the opening for the slide out, but I'm not having any luck in finding a seal of similar design. It's a single piece that attaches to both the inside and outside walls. It has a bulb on each side which forms the seal between the slide and coach wall when the slide is fully extended or retracted. Between the bulbs is a flat section that forms a sweep and seals the opening in the coach wall. It is attached by adhesive or two sided tape and has no track or other type of mounting system. (Picture a "P" and an opposite facing "P" connected at their bottoms by a "U") If I can find it, I'd like to use original design replacement, but I'd go with a suitable aftermarket product if I could find one that would work. Thanks for any suggestions.

That double sided wiper seal is $$$$$$$. I replaced just the top seal on my slide and later found out that I could have replaced just the outside wiper and P seal because the inside was OK. Just have to do an Internet search on RV Slide Seal. You might have to remove the old seal and cut the "U" shape so you still have the inside from the old piece and then screw in the new seal. Not a huge project, just takes some time. I now have to replace just

AP Products makes several seals that will work. Try Dyers RV, RV Parts Nation or several of the larger Internet parts dealers.

Good luck. I'm trying to find the "D" bulb that slides on my wiper seal but can't find the manufacturer that matches the type of slide on bulb. Still searching. But if you are replacing the whole wiper and D bulb at once you shouldn't have a problem.
