slide out wiper seal replacement

I have a 2002 Alumascape 31CKS travel trailer and need to know the procedure to replace the slide out wiper seals. Hopefully I will not have to remove the slide out to do it. Thanks

slide out wiper seal replacement

Depends on the design some just clip on and the clips rot and the seals starts to fall off others slide out of a track then the flap is screw in behind the seal but the slide does not need to come out I have a 02 38ft hornet that I had seasonal I had to replace mine they just clipped on took around an hour to take old ones off clean and install new ones

The seals on my trailer are held on by a spring clip in the rubber. The problem is there is not enough working room to get the new seal pushed back on. Also the corners are stuck together with rubber cement. There is a molding riveted around the opening that may let the entire seal come out at one time. I will call Holiday Rambler to see if they have any information.

Just to follow up with my original post, and after talking with a tech support person that helps customers with older Holiday Ramblers, I decided to remove the inside trim boards and metal edging around the slide out to access the slide out seal from the inside. I think in the future, I will be looking for a newer Airstream with NO slide out. I feel sorry for the guys that have to work on RV's at the RV dealers. My experience is that they are a pain to work on.
