Anybody know where I can buy this molding?

I would like to replace the molding on the outside around all the doors and windows on our 5er. I just don't know if I can buy the replacement for it or where? Here's a few pics of what I'm talking about. I sure hope that I can get some. Thanks for any info.

My local hardware store stocks that stuff. I'm sure that the big home improvment stores do to. Just take a sample in with you

Yep! It's commonly found in RV supply stores. Measure the width of your track grooves, or take a piece of trim with you, so you buy the correct size the first time, I think there are 2 widths sold.
BTW, to remove those black spots, add a few ounces bleach to your wash water every time you wash the RV.

I got mine at Camping World. They have it in Black, Brown, Baige and White. They carry it in many sizes, and it is not expensive..

Thanks for the replies, any idea what to call it? I can't pull it up in any searches on Camping world website.

Its usually called screw cover insert, or screw cover moulding.

Some of it is more rubberlike and other is more stiff, and to fit curves like that be sure to get the soft stuff.

Any RV shop will have it in stock, there's a bunch on E-bay, and even some big box stores carry it in common widths (but they will likely only have the stiff vinyl kind).

I see has black, brown, red and white in normal vinyl and several styles of the flexible stuff for radiused compartments.

I found a great product to gets the mildew stains off was a spray called Bleach White it is a white sidewall cleaner (not many of those still around). Used to carry it at Walmart, K-Mart and most auto parts stores. The other product is boat hull cleaner at any marine store, wipe on wipe off works great.

That's "Bleche' White", a french-sounding name. Good rubber cleaner.

Lot of different types of the molding, some easy to get some not. I had to have mine purchased directly from the rv manufacture through an autherized dealer at $1.18 per foot. Hope you don't have a newmar product.
