The fuzzy seals are replaceable. You can get them from Inland RV ( yeah, I said it!....) but ask them to give you some decent instructions. They come all sewn up tight and after you install them there is a string you pull off to make them fluff up and seal good.

The fuzzy seal is installed the same way as the original installation.

Remove the old, put the new one on in the same place, the same way.

Pull the sting to release the fibers.

Nevermind, I used 3M Weather Strip Adhesive

It worked very well.
