Rich,


Thanks for the reply but I already have that part ordered. I am looking for the entry door weather stripping. In post #2 above the PN # 2226314 was mentioned but the BB dealer I call in Manitoba could not identify that PN.

I got the hinge material from a BB dealer in Manitoba and the replacement screws. I used 3M 4200 for sealant. I found that you have to pull the hinge material threw the extrusions instead of pushing them. I used a set of needle nosed pliers to pull.

I had the hinge material in the door then tried to pull the coach extrusion on but that did not work for some reason so I removed the hinge material from the door, pulled it into the coach side, then the door side. I have no idea why it wouldn't work the other way.

I did this all by myself in the heat and used a black and decker carpenters vise that worked great. I also used it to prop the door up on ran a few screws part way and crawled in and screwed it on. Now I have to do all the rest of them.

I’ve been putting this job off for a while. Did you lube the rubber up or just pulled it dry ?

Any luck with the entry door weather stripping?

Kiki,
I've replace virtually ALL my rubber hinges and have done these on other peoples coaches as well. I found that a little dish washing liquid soap made the job a lot easier.

Also, I found out the hard way that if you pull the rubber thru, it WILL shrink back again over time and you'll have a gap at either, or both ends. It may look OK for a while, but it WILL shrink. You should push the rubber thru. A little pulling to help is OK. But mainly push it in. This is where a little dish washing soap helps. Also, cut your rubber pieces about an inch or so too long. After the rubber is in, use a block of wood and a mallet and tap the ends inward. Then trim it as needed. This will help relieve any stretching that may have occurred.You'll be much better off in the long run if you do this. I had to replace some of mine because I pulled it thru rather than pushing.

Thanks Don,

You have alot more experience than I do on this so I will follow your lead and give your methods a shot on my next one. Tried a bit of silicone lube but found it went in better dry. I will try the dish soap and see how it goes. I see Gene uses e6000 (which I have never heard of in Canada) what have you been using for sealant ?

Gene Is the E6000 an adhesive or a sealant ??

Thanks for the input fellas.

Dale

Kiki, GoJo works well for a lubricant. There are 2 small screws in the end of each rubber hinge. Easy job after you do the first one. A helper always helps.
