door gasket in proper position?

This pic shows where my gasket is on the door currently.Should the bottom piece be attached higher? It doesn't look right.The sill pic is included.The bottom door gasket sits below the rivets when door is closed.

I think it is OK. It looks like the gasket will compress on the flat plate area below those rivets...giving a good seal.

Missed you guys at the fire works last night. The polishing continues....

That gasket was used on 64 and older trailers, not 65's.

The door gasket should completely seal from any exterior water, or even air, prohibiting either one from entering the coach.

Andy,
Awhile back I had Inland send me all the correct gaskets and 3m adhesive to do all windows,access doors,and entry door.
I am not sure exactly where the bottom of the gasket should go.Flush around like the sides or lower where it is in the pic.
On the sill there is a recess that looks like maybe it should go there.Thanks,Steve
PS on the windows I have your instructions on installing the D gasket.Do I also remove the old bulb gasket?
