Bulb-type weatherstripping

Does anyone have a link to a supplier of this weather stripping that goes along the sides and top of the slide-outs? Any tips for the DIY guy on replacing this stuff?

I have never had to do this-----------yet. (knock on wood
There seems to be quite a few different types of bulb seals. I suppose you will have to know what you need to order. Here is a couple links to start with.

Products | Uni-Grip Inc.

Browns RV Superstore, Seals & Weatherstripping

I remember reading about somebody who ordered and replaced theirs. Maybe they will see this and chime in.

I am going to replace mine (hopefully this summer) so I will be watching this thread. I will go to black wiper and bulb seal just so it won't look so dirty all the time (I have white now). It will be pricey - somewhere around $4-500.00 since I have 3 slides. I think it is pretty easy to replace the outside seals - wiper screws on and the bulb seal slides onto the wiper.
Max - shop around once you get your sizes because the prices seem to be up and down depending on the website you go to.

Check with your local Rv service center. The one close to my house has a selection and sells it by the foot.

Thanks everyone for the excellent information here. I will do some checking. My local repair place had the black - but only like 6 feet of it. I thought I should stick to white so I kept looking. Meantime, since I just got back from a 2600 mile trip with heavy rain on the return to Texas, I am happy to report that we only suffered a minor leak due to the bad seal. Box fan dried it out overnight. I went to LOWES and found some heavy thick rubber white window seal (17 foot rolls for about $ 10.00 each. I applied a double layer of this to the track (self adhesive backing) and closed the slides up to get them to set. This actually made a pretty good temporary fix. Now I have some time to shop and get the right stuff without worry. Thanks everyone for the replies. I will repost when I get the job done right. It is tough being back in the real world after 2 weeks through the SW. My Cruiser was perfect otherwise.

I just had a couple wipers replaced. On our Rushmore, we have the stick on wiper with a screw in each end. The bulb then slides into a track on the wiper. Various sizes available on Amazon and EBay.

I replaced the "D Bulb" on the top of my 2007 Cruiser 30SK bedroom slide...It was pretty easy...Remove a screw on either side of the D Bulb and slide it out of the track, then slide the new in and replace the screws...At that time I just called CR customer service and ordered the D Bulb...I understand that service from CR is NOT available any more...I have used these people in the past they might be of help to you...Used RVs, Motorhomes for Sale, and Consigned sales - PPL Motor Homes

I had the white wipers on my 2007 Cruiser also, what a pain in the A$$ to keep clean...
