Slide Seal Glue and Seal "flipper"

Dumb question but I don't want to get this fix wrong. I have some of my slide seals coming loose. They are all glued on and it looks like contact cement has been used. One seal in on the inside, seals when slide is open, and one is on the outside, seals when the slide is closed. They are on the slide not on the opening. What glue/adhesive is used to attach these seals? I started to use contact cement and decided I would post the question first.

Second question, on most of my slides there is what I will call a finger seal attached to the coach side of the opening that "flips" to point either in or out when the slide is open and closed. There is a strip of very rough sandpaper (non-skid for you old Navy types) on the slide that causes the seal to flip when the slide is moved. I need to replace some of this material, any idea where I can find it. I am guessing it comes in rolls like tape but not sure, I am not even sure what to call it to look for it.

Thanks for the help.

Lew

One of my slide-seals came loose under warranty, and the old Monaco Wildwood (may they RIP) replaced it with car-door weatherstrip glue. Most common in parts stores is the yellow (looks like snot), but you can find black if you're persistent.

Places like Lowes, HomeDepot, etc have regular non-skid tape (in various widths), but it's a lot rougher/sharper than the stuff on our slides. Again, you may have to hunt around a bit to find the right stuff, but you'll need the kind that's not quite as abrasive or it will destroy the slide seals over time.

As I type this, West Marine comes to mind - I think I've seen it there before.

I use the same glue as RustyTools. I get the 3M brand, seems to hold better. The tape on the slide is available from a boat supply store. It is non-skid tape they use on boat decks. Comes in several colors including black.

Ah-ha! I knew I saw it in a marine-store somewhere. Sometimes I can't keep straight which vehicle I'm spending my money on.

If a boat is defined as "A Hole In The Water In Which One Pours Money", that probably means my coach is "That Box That Holds The Money Which Is Used To Pull The Hole Around With".

Yo "Tools" don't get the REALLY rough stuff. By that I mean the stuff that feels like sand paper. The feels like sand paper WILL sand the rubber. I got some white a few years ago and it is still working great.

On Edit. I got mine from West Marine..

Seals on my coach are not glued on, they use a "Speed nut' type thing I won't even attempt to describe.

For glue.. I recommend rubber cement, it is a form of "Contact Cement" which is used in tire repair, you get it at the auto parts store.
