Inland Rv has it. You have to pull the top string out and it unravels and then it is the fuzzy stuff! I went through this a while back. It works great!

I replaced some of my fuzzy window lever guides on some of my screens and was very disappointed that within a month of replacement, there were already big gaps left in the fuzzy seal where the window guides sit when the windows are closed. I don't think I'll redo any more of mine because the ones I just did have gaps big enough for bugs to get back in already.

That should not have happened.

Contact your dealer or Airstream for possible warranty coverage for those plates.

fuzzy seals for screens

We got ours at Inland Rv and have had them for two years. Couldn't be happier with them. They work great!

I replaced mine myself with a little spray glue. They work great and no gaps!

About those fuzzy seals

I hoped to find out how you get TO the fuzzy seals to replace them. Can anyone give me a heads up ? Looks to me like the inner window casing must come off to get to them. Thought I'd ask before starting.
Thanks-
Mike (the fossil man)

You remove the screens first.

Then you can reach the backside of the screen frame.

Scrape the old fuzzy seal off and replace it with the new material..

I replaced some of mine but within weeks that gaps reappeared where the window slides rest when the windows are shut. Not sure if it's worth replacing any more of them.

Did you get the adhesive on the fuzzy part, If you did this would cause a gap. Do not use a spray on adhesive, but a brush on, and only apply on the perimeter surface

Nope, no adhesive on the fuzzy stuff, only on the frame. I think the stuff just gets a memory after a while and stays where the lift bars are constantly pushing on it.
