Black rubber sealant. What brand is it???

I need some of the black rubber sealant that Redwood uses where the gas line and the ice maker line comes up through the slide into the refridgerator compartment. They use it in other areas also. I need a brand name and where I could purchase some. Thanks.

Are you asking about sealant or insulation casing ???
if the insulation, then I would get something better than that foam insulation that doesn't insulate and has caused many of us to have frozen ice maker line issues ...


Ah, after I woke up and re-read your post,
I think you mean sealant to seal around the opening !

ignore my early morning musing !

You can buy a tube of black silicone sealant at any auto supply store (Advance auto, Auto-zone, etc.) Generally used to seal windshields, etc. but I've used it in the past for torn seals, etc.

Pretty much any Window/Door Silicone sealant purchased just about anywhere will work to seal those holes up into the RW. Don't think that is anything special (not like the roof).

I think you mean th black foam spray used to fill all the gaps underneath, if so you can pick that up at home supply stores or rv supply store, black insulating spray foam.

The line freezing isn't because of the insulation used. The water in that line might not move for hours or even days. I don't know of any insulation material that is 100% efficient. The line would need to be heat traced under the insulation to keep it from freezing. The material is closed cell foam and is widely used on refrigeration lines. I worked 30yrs as an industrial and commercial insulator. I was a member of the Asbestos Workers Union.
