The best way to fix them is to replace them. I haven't heard of anyone using a 'tape' to fix them, but something like Eternabond or Flex Seal may work as a temporary patch, but it wouldn't be permanent.

Any idea of what it cost to replace them, is this something only a dealer can do. This trailer is only a couple years old and not used very much before I got it. Wonder if it is a common problem on Wildcat Trailers.

Check here to see if you can find the seal. Likely $100 or so depending on how much you need to replace.

Thanks for info

Wow thanks, looks like it would work, I just need to see if I can get the old one out. It appears to have a metal strip holding it in place and not sure how the metal strip is held in place. Good info

Lot of square drive screws (Robertson head or something like that) and sometimes rivets.

Slide Seal Repair WCT312RLI

It looks like itís the inside seal, is there also a outside seal? If there is I would tape it. Are you getting water intrusion from it? I do not like those slides with the wire, your hardest part to replace it will be that wire that has to come out to replace the seal or really the wipe. You have to get the right one, you might need to order it from a dealer
