Allegro Bus, bay weatherstripping source.

Hi there, we have a ‘99 Allegro bus, and our bays are getting pretty soaked when it rains hard. Does anyone have a good source for the bulb type weatherstripping Tiffin uses on these bay doors?

Here's some door seal that I ordered for a couple of my basement doors. It's not cheap but not nearly as pricey as that at about $1.60 per foot. They have it in different lengths.

Thanks LT Dan, that may be the ticket!

You probably have to sign in. Just try store.tiffinmotorhomes.com and then do a search for door gasket in exterior parr’s.

I have noticed their links don't do well. But for our '06 they have yet to fail to have what we need when it's something like the cargo bay seals.

Good Morning LT Dan. I have a 2019 Red 340. I've driven it in rain twice now. Both were pretty good downpours. My pass through compartment, mainly on passenger side is getting pretty wet. It is carpeted, so I've had to empty it out and let it dry out. Kind of annoying. I'm assuming (and hoping) it is only the compartment door seal on one or maybe both passenger compartment doors for this bay. I could tighten the lock hold a bit to draw it in a mm or 2, but I suspect since the leak is likely coming from the hinge side (forward), tightening the lock side down won't really matter much. I am assuming you changed your seals out due to water coming in also? Is the product you provided a link for a more bulky to allow for more sealing material to give enough pressure to seal the compartment door adequately when compared to the OEM seal? I took delivery of my coach in August, so I don't believe my issue is due to wear. I suspect replacing the seal with an OEM seal wouldn't solve my problem. Thanks for your help.

Is the leaking compartment by chance directly behind a wheel? If so, the problem could be a slight gap in the corner along the hinge side that was not sealed completely. They undercoat them with foam but may have missed a spot. Otherwise the seal I linked to stands a little higher and is firmer than the stock seal so it seals a little tighter.

It's not directly behind a wheel, but after reading your reply, I strongly suspect the foam sealant could be the issue. I will roll under there this morning and have a look. If I see a gap, curious what to use to fill it. I suppose I will first check for a gap before worrying about it.
