1993 Excella 34 ft window seals

Hi all just picked up my 1993 excella 34 ft, and noticed some minor dripping from the push out style windows. The foam seals look like pumice stones and are completely dried out. This seal is on the window frame, and when it's closed, the foam is compressed against the trailer . I am looking for the proper replacement seals for these windows. I would appreciate ANY suggestions. Thinking rubber seals would offe a better sealing surface, but figured I'd ask the experts. Thanks every one!!

Andy at Inland RV recommended the "D" shaped rubber seals used in the later models for my '86 Sovereign. Ordered enough for the whole trailer and knocked it out in two afternoons.

3M adhesive remover (from the auto paint supply) was a big help getting the old gasket adhesive off. Wire brush in my DeWalt got the rest.

Yup.. Andy is the right place... also get the black 3M adhesive and follow the instructions.. Welcome aboard!

Oh.. till you can get the seals, use some 'painters tape' to seal up the windows.

Just wanted to provide a quick update. I changed all the window seals, and was still getting a very minor drip in two of the windows. Turns out that the culprit was degraded caulking above the windows. I scraped all the old stuff out and re caulked it with some nice silver caulking. Havent had any issues and I have been in some very wet weather!
