Yup.. follow the instructions... use the 3M gasket stuff!! you can also use 'blue painters tape' to hold in position as you close the door while it 'sets' overnight..

The gasket is the large D gasket from Vintage Trailer supply. Self adhering and I used 3M gasket glue as well.

Them and Inland RV are great for parts, gaskets, etc...

I was pretty aggressive once I started looking. Went through several a day- emails, calls, lots of questions- spent about a month actively looking- spent about 4 months researching what to look for and what I really wanted.

The "Aluminum Falcon" looks great, love the hardwood. Taking the wallpaper off takes 20 years off it.
