03 Windsor Slide Gasket Replacement?

Hi Everyone, looking to possibly buy a new to me 2003 Windsor 40PST and would like to know approximately how much it costs to replace a slide gasket and bay compartment gasket?
I've attached a photo of the slide gasket that looks really chewed up, not sure of the story on it at this time but planning to find out.

Thanks in advance,

Slide seals certainly can be a DIY job. When I replaced my 99 Windsor slide gasket I found a replacement at uni-grip.com. You will need to match up your gasket from the profiles in the catalog. The seal is reasonably easy to be replaced as it can be inserted from the outside but you will need to remove the slide topper to get to the top. Once replaced you will need to keep up on the slide lube (I use the Thetford product). I also used some some 1" strips of non-skid on the three sides of the slideout to assist "flipping" of the seal. You can add that after if it does not flip correctly.
It is difficult to tell from the pic but you want to make sure the slide is centered in the opening or else the new seal will get damaged as well. Also the slide locks, if equipped, can damage the seal if the lock is not working properly.

We were quoted about $1500 to replace ours. It will depend on the length of the slide of course. The seal material was $25 ft. alone. While Im sure it can be a DYI project, it's not something I want to mess with. Our seal is attached with a metal band which is part of the seal and held on as its pinched onto the frame. It was originally installed before the slide was which makes it a lot easier. Now it has to be worked around the opening and pried into place. I would call around to get some estimates. If that one is bad, the rest can't be far behind.

I replaced ours this year on two slides. Got the seals from uni-grip 3.50 a foot. 60 ft with shipping came to $231.00. Its a do it yourself job but its not the easiest job. pushing that seal with the little metal clips gets hard, some one on here said to spray with windex and they slip on better. That's what I did and it works.

Correct flat rate is .15 per ft to replace those seals plus a hour if you have S/O covers that must be moved. Seal runs about 7.50 to 10 a ft at most dealers however expect shipping as well if they doe not stock the seal. So a 15ft room is going to use roughly 30 ft of seal which can run from 150 to 300 plus shipping. and 4.5 hrs labor plus a hour for S/O cover So you could be 660 in labor plus most shops charge for shop materials we get 10% which would be another 66 bucks so there you go. Right around a grand and if you shop around you can do it yourself for a couple hundred bucks and my hands will not be sore for 2 days after doing it for you LOL.
