We have a 1989 hi lo and need to replace the rubber seal that runs between the upper and lower wall.. when the camper is lowered . all the road dirt, mud blows up into the camper. Any suggestions?

Default Replacing seal between upper and lower half

Look for back posts on this repair. Some have come up with alternate less expensive seal material. This fifteen page document explains how to break the Halves of the HiLo apart using a floor jack and 2x4s. I got my seal from J&R in Ohio. For my 25ft Classic it was $400.00 plus shipping. JR is a repair place in Ohio. These folks worked at the original HILo manufacturing facility. www.cable replacement in my 1998 HiLo 24TD 3-3-2010. The material you are looking for is 3/4 hollow p bulb seal with 1" stem. Hopefully some one with more computer expertise can send you some links.FYI I used pipe insulation when I was set up in the campground to fill in the gaps on the outside. We have since replaced our seal and it 94% keeps out the dirt. Then I cut up a towel and made home made draft stopers on the inside. I filled them with beans. One I made is so heavy i can hardly pick it up. DH does this for me. Replacing the seals can be a do it yourself job if you are handy.

Default stopping drafts

Some have used pool noodles. DH cut the foam pipe wrap at 45degrees. Then he labeled where all the pieces went.

Welcome to the forum. The procedure for replacement involves much of the same steps as in the cable replacement, as you have to separate the two halves.

Parts are available through JR Repair and Midget Trailers. Links below. Good luck!
