Smile Slideout Weatherstripping issue

I spent time searching and haven't been able to find help with my issue. On both sides of my slide out, the weather stripping is torn. One side is worse than the other. Is this something I can replace, seems to have torn pretty easily. Pics attached, I appreciate any advice.

look on youtube. Probably find a particular video on replacing your type of weatherstripping (different types and brands)

Your type of Slide system "Cable" is more prone to Damage from the Cables running through the Seals! Regardless the type of Slide system owners need to Lubricate/Apply "Aerospace 303 Protectant" on your rubber seals,it is also a UV protectant! I have found the best way to apply is a Cloth glove saturated with 303 and reach in from the outside and coat Both/All seals,if you have Slide Toppers you will need LONG Arms for the Top seals or be Creative! Lubing your seals will allow them to Not stick and move more freely But will not Eliminate your Cable Cutting issue! Youroo!!
