Question Slide rubber weather seal - split

I have a spit in the rubber weather gasket that seals the slide to the coach (when closed). This is the continous seal mounted to the coach on the inslide of the slide opening. Has anyone experienced this condition? Any suggestions for repair? The split is ~ 4-5" long. I taped it with electrical tape to keep it from extending further down the seal.

Anybody have thoughts on how I can fix or get this fixed?

Rick, welcome to We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences.
You can cut off a small section at the bottom. You may find what is called a double bulb with sweep seal. It is a very common gasket used around slide outs and many rv repair shops usually have some in stock. There are different sizes and that is why you want a sample or you can have a shop order it for you.
It can be replaced by putting the slideout out half way and the seal is removed and a new on pushed and pressed back onto the extruded aluminum frame on the main wall.
Can you take a photo of a cross section and post it here?
