Looking for a source for good quality replacement white window locking gaskets for my 2005 Outback Sydney.



Mine are sun baked and have shrunk over the years. This has caused some to pull out at the corners or leave large gaps at the ends.

I can't remember where I got the outside window trim and am in my office with no RV records but I called Keystone and a very helpful customer service rep told me the name of the window maker and they sold me window trim identical to the stuff that was doing exactly what your camper's trim is doing. I have a 2002. It is a bit of a pain to install but can be done if you are patient.

Welcome to the forum:wlcm:

Most common windows is Kinro. There different profiles, so you might want to take a pic of the cross section. Itís available on line, I think itís called window trim. With soapy water and a plastic knife itís fairly easy to install b

Fairly easy is a relative I guess. I found it a PIA. It was hard to keep it locked into the corners. I will hunt around and see if I can find where I bought the stuff later this afternoon when I get out of my shop.

Thanks, chuckster57! For the welcome and the info.

After looking at the profile of the window trim (otherwise known as glass glazing bead) it looks like it is Kinro Window Trim Part # #RV08524-02 White.

Kinro's website says it is the same as their Window Trim Part #RV08523-02 White. But, this part profile looks to have a slightly thicker "leg" that touches the glass.

And Kinro's web page lists this contact as a source:

This is for my 2005 Keystone Outback Sydney Edition RL30.

When you are putting it on try using a hair dryer to soften it up a little to make it go around the corners a little easier and be sure to leave it a little long so when you put the ends together you have to force the extra in which gives a tight seam and accounts for future shrinkage.

I installed the stuff and didn't use a hair drier and the corners were difficult to keep in place. Perhaps the hair drier will help. Send along a follow up.

Anytime I've replaced a neoprene or butyl, rubber gasket I've soaked the gasket in hot water for a few minutes. It gets the entire gasket heated uniformly and makes it more pliable. A factory representative of restaurant equipment advised me to have the HVAC techs do this.
