Smile Pop up cover weather stripping replacement..

Is there a special tool needed for replacing the weather stripping back in to the channel on my pop up? The weather stripping I'm talking about is the one that seals the top when lowered down onto the main box of the pop up camper. Any and all tips will greatly be accepted. Thank you

Not sure of your specific design, but most weather stripping has a wedge type edge that pops into a receiving groove.
If yours is partially out, you should be able to see if this is the case.
Usually you bend the edge at an angle, and push it in.
Might also try Googling it. I found a couple post about the subject.
Sounds like it could have a track or could be glued depending on design.

Best regards,
Doug

The track is like a WIDE T. I know its not real easy to insert the weather stripping, but I have a way I will try this weekend. (a small rounded blunt object and a little vasoline should do the trick) I think!! I will keep you posted. I found nothing on intalling it, but if I do, I will post it!

Thank you
Les

Les,

I wouldn't use Vaseline because of the oil content may react with the plastic/rubber weather stripping. Liquid dish pan soap (Dawn, etc.) seems to work great in installing/removing rubber seals and gaskets ..., plus cleans up easy.

Just a thought.

Bob

I had one area on my POPUP roof that kept coming out so I just used RTV and glued that sucker in place. Been there a long time now... Mine wasn't a weather seal area but one of those bumper strips that keeps you from knocking your head when walking around the trailer.

Thanks for heads up Bob. I will use your idea, hopefully the weather stripping goes in as easy as it came out. Well, the genius before loaded the groove up with glue, and glued into place. I have spent time to clean it out, I will spend time to do it right.

Thanks again Bob

If the new weather stripping tends to move around in the track after installation, install a small screw at one end of the T-track thru the seal to hold it in place.
