Filon siding splice?

I have a 40' Teton and I am replacing the siding due to age and lack of care.
Is there a "splice " that can be used to put the siding on in sections and cut like above the door? Instead of using a 40' piece ? Thanks, Jon

You can, and cover with trim. Better way to do it; put the splice on top of studs and use adhesive to hold them down, and then have someone fill in the gaps and gelcoat over the seams. You will NEVER see them if they are good.

Any fiberglass repair men/women can do a repair that blends perfectly. Also it will strengthen the area by being seamed together.

Thanks to you both, I didn't know that that was a acceptable way to repair it.
I have a auto and marine shop and this is easy for us. And it makes it way easier than hanging 40'
