Side window gasket part number

Unread postby gojoe on Thu Apr 27, 2017 2:08 pm

Has anyone had success using the Trimlok brand gasket for side window installation and if so what part number worked best?

I did a thread somewhere but basically...it "worked" but it did not radius well even though it was supposed to according to spec.
I would look into getting some from maybe Airstream or Skamper ?
It did work, just not neat on corners.
Honestly if I do it again, I would just can the windows and put newer screw type windows in. The windows on these Travcos were very troublesome. They leak like sieves.

Good to know. Screw in frames would be sweet but imagine would have to change the wood frame on coach wall to steel or aluminum for adequate screwing hold. Maybe not. I tried a sample bit of the one piece trimlok k1536. Seems a bit loose once the key is pushed in. Was that your experience? Did you use an epdm caulking along the grooves of the rubber before setting the moulding? I can see this job being really messy. Bring on the acetone!
