Another slideout seal problem

Hi guys, well after repeatedly rplacing skids and runners on my slideouts (under warranty), I've turned my attention to the ruined ball/wiper seal at the bottom of each slide of my 2017 Salem Hemisphere 5th wheel. Seems constant wearing of the round head screws extending from the trim piece have trashed the bottom 3-4 inches of each wiper. Not under warranty. Now I'm looking for the correct replacement wiper for this model. Are they universal? Looked at a few from Steele rubber, inc but guess I dont know what Im looking for. They arent cheap, so sure want to be right when I order them. Thanks in advance.

If you send Steele a picture of your current wiper, they can make sure you order the right one. That’s what I did. They will even take back any unused, uncut pieces.
