Weatherstriping

I need to replace all the weatherstripping on the new (to me) 1972 Terry trailer. What little bit that's still there is brittle and falling out of the tract. Any idea where would be the best place to get weatherstripping and the best type to get? And where is the fresh water tank inlet? lol I can't seem to find it...

Nevermind, found the inlet.

For older trailer parts, try Vintage Trailer Supply. They should have something that will work for your weather stripping.

As for the fresh water tank inlet, it may be behind a rectangular door on the street side. Or are you asking about the hose connection for city water?

I found where the city water goes, is this the inlet for the fresh water tank?

Take samples of the old weatherstripping to local body supply shop and match it up. Weatherstripping shapes/sizes tend to be pretty standard.

Thank you. Now I just have to try to get it off. It doesn't want to turn.

The tank water fill looks like it has a Schrader air valve in the cap. If that is a Schrader valve, you did not have a pumped water system to begin with...it may still be a pressurized tank system.

Do you know if you have an electric water pump?

I know nothing about this trailer. Everything I asked the guy selling it was met with a "I don't know." He had it connected to a hose which would bypass the need of a water pump, right? He was living in it and just using the electricity from his mom's house. He had rigged up an elecrtric water heater, but he said nothing about a pump.

My memory is not that great, but I used to have a 70's model Terry 20 footer. It had a water tank at the very front of the camper under the bed. Seems it had an electric pump under there too.
