Double wiper slideout Seal replacement

Wonder if anyone could help me? 2016 Redwood 39MB. I apparently have a double wiper seal in my living room kitchen slideout and the wiper has separated from the track at the top . Thought I could just remove the track along with the single wiper and replace it but there appears to be another wiper/seal behind it (double seal) . Not too sure how to access the inside seal to remove and replace? I have heard remedies of having to remove trim on the inside to access it or removing the slideout to replace it. Do you know what I need to do to access this interior seal and/or how it is attached? Hate to order the new seal if I don't know how to replace it. It seems that this is the appropriate seal from Amazon AP Products 018-2030-168 Double EK D Base, 2" x 3-3/16" x 14'. https://shorturl.at/hkXjP. Wonder also if they make this in shorter lengths but I dont see it. Also dont see a youtube on how to do it so that is why I am asking you guys.
Any help with as much specificity as you can muster would be appreciated.


Thank. you !

Slide Seal Replacement.

Your coach has a Channel Type slide out Wiper. First you can get new ones on Amazon. AP Products 018-2082-168. As far as installing them it's not that difficult. Take the bulb seal off the outside to access the screws if they used them. Then carefully peel the seal away from side of the unit. To remove the wiper, you must retract the slides around a foot and then use a short step ladder to remove the inside screws from the seal and peel that down so it can be removed as a unit from the outside. Be sure to Clean as much sealant off the outside wall before applying the new sealant and screws. Once you get the old seal out the install is just the reverse. You may want to do the side seals at the same time because the factory never does a great job of the corner miters.
