Need to replace wiper seal

I have a wiper seal that needs replacing on my "16" 38RL.. It is on the curb side, rear of the slide.
The dealer is covering the seal, and up to 1 hour labor, all I have to do is call him with some measurements.
Does anyone know what I need to measure? Is it the width of the wiper portion? I really don't want to get him bad info..

You would need to measure from the top of the slide opening to the bottom of the slide opening. Give a few extra inches as insurance. They shipped mine in 9 foot sections. Hope that helps

Wiper Seals

The Kitchen and Dinning slideout require AP 018-2030-168 Double EK D Base, 2" x 3-3/16" over the top and down the sides. This is shipped straight so has to be shipped by truck. RV supplies wanted a fortune to ship this, I found it on Amazon and with Prime it is free shipping. It comes in 14' lengths for $172. This seal is shaped like a U with the D seal bracket on both sides so you are replacing the inside and outside wiper at the same time. It spans thru the wall to attach on the inside and outside walls. The D seal, the same size D seal works on all sides inside and out for all slides and that is AP Products 018-312-EKD Black 1" x 15/16" D-Seal. This comes in 35' at Amazon for $88.79. The sealant you use to put on the outside edge of the D seal is GEOCEL 2300 CLEAR Construction Tripolymer Sealant 10.3 oz. Cartridge. This is one of the few sealants that will stick to the rubber gasket and side of the RV. The best price I found on this was from Conspec Materials Inc in Tampa Fla at $6.99 a tube (www.conspecmaterials.com), you will need almost 1 tube per slide for the outside D gaskets.

Thanks for the info... I measured mine and they are 2-3/8", not 3-3/16".. that is the measurement of ONLY the WIPER portion... is that were they get those numbers ?

The 3 3/8" is the total width including the wiper and the channel the D seal goes on. The actual wiper width is 2 1/4", you said yours is 2 3/8", This is the size I got from Tiara RV but ordered thru Amazon because Tiara wanted over $400 for shipping. Claimed they had to ship it by truck because it had to be shipped straight. Amazon shipped it by UPS in a tube that kept it straight. Here is some pictures of the seal.
