AC Shroud Replacement

I just received a replacement shroud for the AC unit on our 2000 19' Bambi from Icon. The shroud appears to be made of a better material, but the rear screw holes are 1/4" forward of where they should be and the shroud did not come with the foam tape that routes air flow around the condenser.

Does anyone know where I can purchase replacement foam tape? I checked the local ACE Hardware and they do not carry it.

Thanks for your help, Bob.

Loews or a local commercial HVAC supply.

I've purchased stick-on foam weatherstripping tape at Homey D.

the weatherstripping to use is 1 1/4"x 1 1/4" also used for room Airconditioners. Anything smaller may not seal properly

Thank you for the responses. I think I'll use the room AC 1 1/4" foam with some double stick tape.

I got an interesting response from ICON when I asked them about the foam:

The foam tape in not a necessary to have, however if you would like it for you replacement shroud, some customers have used the original foam from the original shroud or found something similar at the local hardware store.


It's hard to believe that the AC unit would be as efficient if you skipped using the foam. Proper air flow around the condenser is pretty important.

Thanks again, Bob.
