Slide out Gaskets

I need to get specs or better yet pics of the slideout gaskets on a Travel Supreme 5th wheel. Mine is a 2001 KSTSO. Slides are being pulled allow for carpet replacement so this would be the time to inspect and replace the gaskests if needed. I'm currently 600 miles from the trailer. I understand there are a number of gasket profiles.

I can provide my e-mail if that makes it easier.
Thanks

Check with your local RV Shop. They should have catalogues that will show several different kinds of seals. You should be able to match your current seal to one in their catalogues. they cna thne order it for ouy if they don't have it in stock.

I would but the trailer is in Calgary and I'm in Victoria. That is why I'm asking others for the profile.

Another owner asked the same question at the Escapees forums. Perhaps some of that information is helpful. Have you tried the Travel Supreme(Jayco) website?

Don't know about specs but are your gaskets bad ?
Advised by someone on this forum that "baby Powder" helped preserve gaskets. Have been using for over a year and still evident - ie; doesn't seem to wash off in rain. Appears to keep gaskets supple, flexible.

Gasket seals

There is a liquid product you can wipe on with a rag, stops them from sticking to the trailer.
Don't know if they are dead yet.

The issue isn't so much as sticky seals but more that the clps which hold the seal on the trailer rust and come apart causing the seal to fall off. The front one fell off 5 yrs ago. The previous owner used to spend Winters at Ft Walton Beach, salty environment. I did find some of the rusty clips on the floor when I was removing the facia on the front of the sliedout. It would be a lot easier to do it when slides are out for carpet replacement rather than fight with it later.
Uni Grip at the top of this page has an extensive site on seals...only thing is, which one??
