Air Conditioner Gaskets - $$$

I am getting ready to reseal our roof air conditioners on our 2004 Mountain Aire. Newmar wants $116 for each gasket! Other than the "leg", are they any different than other gaskets of the same size? Can one just use a standard gasket and cut a leg from another standard gasket?



Yes, I am frugal...

I recommend Dometic gaskets. Buy 1 extra and cut it to fabricate the dogleg. The reason is that the Dometic gasket set is a firmer material.

Thanks! That is what I was hoping to hear. What sort of adhesive did you use to glue the dogleg to the border of the gasket? Is that necessary?

I used 3m spray adhesive. I use it for lots of stuff. Available at Lowes or HD or Amazon.

The square gasket comes with peel-n-stick ... you can attach the square and dogleg to the bottom of the A/C unit then set it down on the rooftop. You'll only need the 3M for the ends of the dogleg if you cut it from a piece of the spare because it will have the peel-n-stick on the long side.
