Bunk end weather strip needs replaced

I have a 2006 Coyote by KZ. The weather strip for the front bunk end is cracked and letting water in when closed. Does anyone have any experience with replacing this? Is a DIY project or would I be better off taking it to a dealer?

All the seals are a little different for each trailer. Some are just glued in, while others are in a grove. As a new unit back in 13' I would sometimes get leaks if we drove in the rain. On my they added a thin gasket to the bunk door too.

I would call KZ because they are still in business and ask if they have any 06' seals in stock. Or point you in the direction of who might have supplied gasket material back then.

At 10 years old I'm sure there are others in the same boat. Myself I'll spray silicon at least twice a year to all my seals. My slide and doors I spray maybe 5 times a year.

Thanks. I just bought this unit last fall or I would have been treating the seals regularly.
The local dealer said it would be less than a hundred dollars for them to change it. I think I will go that route. The old seal appears to be glued

I think that would be a smart move. How are the back bunk door seals? If the back ones are iffy, I think I would have them do that also.

The real test is towing in a driving rain.

Yep. I scheduled to have both seals replaced. The back isn't as bad as the front but will be soon.

We bought this camper from somebody my wife works with. I have been surprised at how poor their attention to maintenance details has been. Looks like they did not understand what it takes to keep it in top condition. The just camped in it. End of the story!

It's called pride of ownership. It's all the little things that add up to keeping it in descent shape. I'm always wiping around all the door openings, roof vents covers. I even wax my AC and frig vents. With our trip to Alaska I just under coated my wheelwells, and exposed frame on the front of the RV trailer.
