Rubber seals and bunk ends

So Im brand new to hybrid ownership. What should I use for maintenance on the seals and fold outs? Also how often? Experience trumps research so I would really appreciate you guys that have lived it letting me know what works best.

pictures worth a thousand words...

if bunks leak rain water when closed try to tighten the handles

Mold Armor ( brite green bottle) from Home Depot to clean the black mold that will grow on the bunk ends, inside or outside, especially in hot, humid or damp weather.

UV spray after cleaning bunk end with Awesome (Dollar store cleaner) also use this on the black rubber gaskets to keep them in good shape 2X or 3X a year... I try to wipe after every two weeks camping

303 Fabric Guard to spray 2X a year on the CLOTH side curtains in the bunk ends to keep water repellent

I spray the seals with silicon lubricant once a year, keeps them from sticking to the RV.

Aerospace 303 is better.

The rubber sticks to the bunk ends usually from tree sap that sticks to the seals and/or the bunk ends. That is why it is important to wipe the sealing surface on the bunk ends and seals with Awesome or some other cleaner before closing up. The 303 UV protectant will help with the rubber deteriorating from sunlight.
