RevCon window parts list - Flatnose models

A fellow RevCon renovator asked about the parts and sources I used to re-seal the sliding coach and driver/passenger windows in Flatnose Frank so I thought I'd provide them here. Mine is a 1972, but I assume all Flatnoses to 1977 are the same (but...assumptions).

As far as a DIY, this part of the project was a pretty time-consuming challenge, but very rewarding. Be careful, I broke one of my windows in the process and could not get an exact replacement for the glass. I remain an amateur glazier.

Fuzzy channel (all around windows, what they slide in) - Note that this channel is a tiny bit too big. It works, but some windows are tight. (I assume they will loosen up with time)

Pile weather stripping (vertical seal for center sections) - Vintage Trailer Supply

Glazing channel (seals glass) - Crlaurence.com / usalum.com PN. GC722C
https://www.amazon.com/Glazing-Vinyl.../dp/B000KZRAYE

These are NOT OEM parts (those don't exist. AFAIK), but based on my research and experience with 8 windows, they work.

Some pictures of the process are in the middle of this page of pictures in my renovation album.

So I have located another option that I will go with for the fuzzy channel. AS152896 - CRL 96" Flexible Flocked Rubber Glass Run Channel for Universal for Buses and RV Windows This one has the right dimensions of 7/16" x 7/16". Hoping that will solve the too tight you spoke of. Also found the glazing vinyl in black ( I also am going with black frames) GC722BLC - CRL Black Glazing Vinyl 9/32" Channel Depth 1/4" to 19/64" Metal Opening - 100' Roll The Fuzzy pile weatherstrip is available also through CR Laurence FS7716C - CRL .160" Pile Height; .187" Backing Width Finned Weatherstrip - 100' Roll

The items that I am striking out on is the filler strip that accompanies the fuzzy channel and glazing vinyl to seal the extrusion from water and dirt. It is like a flat topped seal that fits into the 5/16" and 7/16" track. did you just reuse yours or did you find a source for that?

Nice finds on the black seals. Yes, I didn't find those seals center section seals, so I cleaned and re-used the originals.
