Hard to find parts

Hello everyone... I'm not sure where to post this question but I'm looking for a hard to find part and I was wondering if any of you have seen this and know where I can buy it.

It's a Shower Door Waterstop or seal. It goes on a glass shower door.

Any help would be great!!!

I would look at a good hardware store. I don't believe these things are unique to RVs.

Your profile or signature does not tell what type or brand of unit you have. It could help a lot.

I agree on the hardware store. Go to a BIG one. They get a catalog from several companies that lists parts for all types of doors, windows, storm doors, bath doors, etc. if no luck there check at a large glass company that installs shower doors. THAT may even be your best first bet.

Good Luck!

Is it the bottom sweep or the side seal? If you cant find the exact sweep they do make "universal" ones you can use. Just google shower door sweeps and youll find a bunch, just pick the one you think will work best. Looks like a "T" type.

Try a place that specializes in making shower doors, or a glass shop. I had a shower door made for our house at a shower door store. They have all kinds of that stuff.

Make a call to If they can't locate this seal, try RV salvage and surplus stores.

I went looking for a similar seal for the bottom sweep of our shower door a while back. There are dozens of different sweeps, and they all have different seals, but none matched profile of the one on our door.

The best solution is to replace the entire sweep. As Yellowreef says, there are universal designs, and it will be easier to find one of these that will work instead of finding a seal with the exact profile of the original. On most showers, the bottom sweep doesn't really form a watertight seal, it just deflects water back into the shower so it doesn't drip out onto the floor, so the fit isn't critical.

Our shower door sweep was fastened onto the bottom of the door with foam tape with double-sided adhesive. 3M makes foam tape recommended for outdoor use. I think Walmart stocks it.

If you rig happens to be either a Winnie or Itasca, carries them and in fact the one they send are twice as long as needed so you get the old two for one. I paid about $4 for the last one I ordered.

Thank you guy's so much for all the advice! I will look into it and post back when I find the part. I have found a lot of parts viewing your post from a lot of helpful people. I made the move to an RV about one year ago and now live in it full time. It's the little hard to find parts that keep me busy. Thanks again!
