Slide interior seal/padding replacement -> where to buy?

We're looking to replace the interior seal/padding of our slides (= the rubber padding that's between the inside slide wall and the wall of the RV). I'm not talking about the exterior seals here. It's the stuff that is stuck permanently on the inside of the slide wall -> when the slide pulls in you can see it on the interior edge and it provides padding between the slide & wall when the slide is out. Make sense?

I think it's just some kind of simple weather stripping, but I haven't been able to find one that holds up. Last time I tried this repair I bought wide foam tape from Home Depot, but it's already broken up and not doing any good.

Any ideas here?

Carpet strips, huh....hadn't thought of that. I'll keep this in mind in case I can't find an easy-to-buy seal to use.

My original was a foam rubber and needed replaced after only 4 years. I chose one that matched the profile of the original but not the foam type. I'll see how well they hold up.
I got mine from uni-grip. Tape seal # SD-203-T .250 thick x .375 wide,
I believe terry if referring to the wiper/spacer and not the seal.

Ok. I see the one you bought. One of those D-shaped jobs. I'll probably go for a similar one in a slightly larger size. Thanks!

I have been looking for information about foam that is on under the slideout, attached to the Coach. Looks to be 1" wide by .150 thiick, white in color. I assume its called Wiper Foam. Where do I buy it and how is the best way to replace it.
I have a 07' Dolphin LX.
