Replace RV Compartment Door Seals

Over time, the seals of your compartment doors may become cracked or torn. Keystone's Bart Taylor walks you through step-by-step to remove and replace your seals so they are as good as new.

Replacing Compartment Door Seal

Tools Required:

  • Proper length of new Seal for the door
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive remover
  • Isopropyl alcohol (or adhesive promoter)
  • Rubber gloves
  • Flashlight

Directions:

  1.          Start by removing the old seal.
  2.          Clean up the surface using adhesive remover and then prep the surface with alcohol
  3.          Starting at the bottom begin to install the new seal.  Work it around the corners until you arrive back at the bottom.  Note: It’s important to install with the seam at the bottom of the door.  If you install with the seam at the top, water has a better chance of making it thru and doing damage to your RV.  Having the seal at the bottom leaves the water nowhere else to go but out and away.
  4.          Now close the door and with a flash light make sure the door is sealed all around, if not you need to make adjustments as needed.
