Newmar slide seal replacement

Has anyone replaced the slide seal on their Newmar? (We have 2011 Ventana) The seal is the type with 2 bulbs, a wiper and a spring steel section that clips over the edge of the trim piece around the slide opening. Got the old one out and a replacement from Newmar, but getting it clipped on seems about impossible. Any suggestions appreciated. Is some type of lubricant a good idea? If so what? thanks -- wayne

Newmar part number is: 85582, Vendor Part # - ED50468-T

when we had slide seal replaced at the newmar international rally in Syracuse this year the techs opened slide about 10 - 12 inches and used muscle to push spring onto fiberglass edge of slide opening. I did not notice any lubricant. When they get to the top corners they push gasket on best they can then cut back side of gasket to get the 90 degree corner tight. They then apply black silicone on the cut they made on the corner.

Had one replaced by mobile tech after I couldn’t do it. He put slide out a few inches and used a flat wooden stick to push clips in. He did leave a few blemishes the slide so be careful to have plenty of padding to avoid that.

Would you know if this is the same slide seal on my 2016 Ventana?
Did you get it from Newmar or from Uni-Grip?
Price?

I don't know if it is the same. I got it from Newmar, price per foot so measure what you would need and call Newmar parts.

I did it myself and the key was stripping back an inch or so of rubber so the steel clip was exposed and then pressing the steel clip on first and then working around. Used a pry bar and wood strip to protect and change the angle a little.

Tedious but got it done

Don't peel back the rubber folds that lie within the steel clips. First, start with an area that gives you enough room to get it started. Spray WD 40 down the center of the new seal and use a plastic prybar to push the seal onto the metal where it belongs. Try to keep it lined up where you are going to push the seal up with the pry bar. Keep working your way until you reach the end. If you run into problems on the top of the slide where there is very little room to push the seal up, get a heavy cloth and a piece of wood that would fit un the gap and pry up a bit to give you room to work, using a plastic wedge to hold the wood up. You might need to do a couple feet at a time to accomplish it. The strength of the seal is dependent on both rubber folds as well as the spring material to be together and pushed on the metal border. It will take you quite some time to complete it, believe me.

Since it's the same part, I ordered it from Uni. They list a 30 foot and a 150 foot piece but they also sell by the foot at $5.50? each. Of course it's my super slide seal that has failed so I ordered 40 feet.
BTW, my seal failed because the crap Carefree awning cover failed due to poor quality thread. I don't understand why Carefree can't get this right - there are some that have had theirs fail within 3 years.
I am replacing the awning cover fabric with one from Stone Vos that has a 10 year warranty.

If you're doing it yourself I highly recommend purchasing these on Amazon:

Lisle 69620 Wedge Assortment Set, 5 Piece, $27.29 and on Prime.
