Is that the d bulb seal or the wiper flat seal

The d bulb died from the sun. Rot on 1 slide 1' track new replacement bulbs is a lower and smaller profile

You talk to anyone @ tiara rv bout this? Issue they sell a lot of this stuff

I tried to match oem also had the same problem

Bout a 1/8 or 1/4" taller oem

Let me know

from amazon 50' 109 bucks but i installed it

I did get a roll of - AP 018-312-EKD Ek Seal D-Seal Black - (think is was 35' roll) on Ebay for around $92 shipped, and that seemed to work better than the original size, my original seemed to really get smashed, and right where the bulb attaches to the base, it began to tear - front and rear for each slide.
So far I have replace both top seals for the living and kitchen slides, and seems to be holding up.
Good luck!!

I think they had a run of defective seals. Ours turned to gum and tore the first year. I heard of similar problems on other units in the era.
