Thanks for the suggestion..

If you have a CW near you; they usually have it in stock or you can order it.
Looks much nicer with the new stuff installed!
Yes I am trying to make the outside look perfect...not going to happen with a 12 year old unit...but I am trying..Got a 100 ft rool for $42...not bad at 42 cents a foot..

I am working to make this 12 year old MH as nice as possible...being OCD with neatness is a difficult thing when owning a used RV

With the trim strip warm it will expand in length, the longer the strip, the more expansion. If you warm it or do it in the warm sun leave it a little long until it cools down before you make the final cut (overnight is good). I ran into a problem replacing it on a boat rub rail many moons ago.

Yes the MH is in very good condition...I had it professionally cleaned after I bought it but they could not get that seal clean...I got the dealer to drop the price over $9000 below NADA price and he winterized it and installed a electric brake controller so I spent a few hundred and had it cleaned and polished...figure I need to change the seal...have a few scratches on the painted lower section but i have a friend who owns a body shop who will make all repairs at cost..

Post #18 has some very good advice.
The screws at the end of the run are to keep the vinyl from shrinking too much.

If it were me I would leave about 6" on each end and cut it to needed length when it's cold. You will be surprised how much that stuff will shrink. particularly having it warmed up with hot water to install then the cold PA air cooling it down.

Well, buying drinks for everyone sounds like a good idea.

If you're taking it to a body shop anyway, ask them about painting that mldg.
