Door weather seal replacement

Anybody replace the weather seal on the top of the door? Mine is tore at the other side and I need to replace it. Haven't ventured out yet to look for it so was just wondering if anyone could save me some time and guide to me to a place If I can't find it, I will have to call FR. It slides into a channel.

Door weather seal replacement

Check out the link below. This explains the process and the weather stripping size to use. You can find the weather stripping on Trimlok.com or places such as The Home Depot or Lowe's.

I really like the design of many aspects of our Flagstaff 228 and our 206 before it, but I must say that the weatherstrip on top of the door is really poorly designed! With our 206, we were able to open the door with the roof in the locked-in-place position, but the weatherstrip was so rigid that it tore quickly. Rather than replace it with the same type piece, I went to Lowes and bought some tubular weatherstriping and screwed that on in its place. It worked like a charm. We never had leakage or a tear after that. With our 228, the roof, when stowed, is too low for the door to clear the roof to open; so I simply raise it far enough to avoid the tearing. You'd think they could improve on that!!
