2009 Monarch slide seals

The side seals on the single large slide out on my 2009 Monarch 33SFS are splitting and need replaced. Any advice on the specific seal and tips or removal and installation would be appreciated.

I did mine a few years back on a 2009 Monaco Monarch 33SFS.
Not an easy job but with the help of a couple of friends got the job done.
Not much room to get your hands between the slide and the frame.
We took turns and made a few tools to help pry the seal to the lip.

I got 40 feet of seal from Uni-Grip. ED-50473

Thank you so much for the info. The seal looks exactly like the one we have. A couple of questions if you don't mind.
1. Did you pull the fabric on the slide topper or did you remove it? Ours looks quite heavy but does need new fabric. I am not sure that the wife and I can handle the entire unit standing on ladders.
2. Are the new seals bonded or glued in. It looks like they just slip on. I think the existing seals have some adhesive holding them in place.

Thanks much!

I took the roller with fabric out of the end caps and laid on the roof.
There is a hole in the roller assembly that you put an Allen key in to stop if furling.
The metal clinch in mine had rusted and came off the edge in places, no adhesive was used before or after.

At the time we were in our winter RV park in Apache Junction.
There was never a shortage of "expect help" looking for something to work on.

Took about 4 hours, took turns on the ladders. not much space between slide, frame and roof, pretty hard on fingers and hands.

Made some tools from the kitchen to help lever the seal onto the edge to help save fingers.
