I replaced the seals, butting them against each other, just in time for some moderate rain this weekend. I am happy to report that they seem to have held. I also made a further modification, putting some raised rubber feet on the doors so that my screw-down latches don't bite into and crush the outside of the seals.

Of course, there seems to be another problem which I've documented here just in case anyone has some input.

skylinedrifter, another thing to watch with the door is that over time they start to bend in the middle, thus leaving a gap even with the new seals. That's what happend with ours and propted us to trade it. It might be wise to made some sort of support for the middle of the door near the seal edge when the bed in in use.

Thanks for the heads up.

I noticed that bow a few weeks ago. Thankfully, it is minor enough where the new seals effectively protect it. I am still going to look for a way to put a bigger gutter on for some better protection. My wife's ex husband is a metal fabricator. he and I are going to try and engineer a solution later this summer.
