You might start by contacting Monaco RV to see if they have any older seals from the acquisition of Monaco Coach. What specifically is the reason that you need to replace the seal? I ask because there may be other options available to you (such as purchasing a third-party product).

when i was full timing the park hired me out as the park handy man.that said most rvs i worked on the seal wasnt bolted to the slide it snapped in a channel now there will be lots of bolts holding the trim on that said i used united (route 66) do a search on them maybe one around you. as a general rule it cost about $5 a foot for the seal. some rvs were easier than some have toppers on them you need to pin the spring.i could do a large slide in 4 to 6 hours only tool needed is a cordless drill and socket
