Has anybody tried push on door seals around the doors? The original white door seal does not make contact with my door and is fairly useless, I was going to try some from JC Whitney (if I can't find any here in Canada ) looks like it would make a lot better seal.

It all depends on how well your door fits and how much of a gap you want to fill.
After I rebuilt my door I was able to use a very thin Taco weather seal.
However, for the type you mentioned, I found that type at the parts departments of the big truck shops like James Western Star ,
White, Kenworth or Mack. They sell it in rolls or by the foot. it is used on the sleeper cabs and such.

Another good source is some of the marine suppliers who carry Taco hatch seal by the roll.
I was able to get most of my supplies at one in Prince George when I lived there. He had the best supply I have found anywhere.
Here in the Okanagan where we have many huge lakes and 1000's of boats there is not one shop in Vernon, Kelowna, Pentiction or Salmon Arm who has the stock this guy had.

Boy I could send more business to the guy in Prince George then enough. He was my supplier for many SS fasteners and catches and Silkaflex adhesive.
His name is Bill Lloyd George: Marine Plus, #14,1989 1st. Ave. Prince George, B.C. V2L 2Z3
Ph: 250-562-0801
Fax: 250-614-1742

Oh! And some of the marine suppliers may carry the Trim-loc products or they can order it. See the catalouges in the document Center.
Ha! I just checked and those ones are gone. What gives???? Donna I sent you those a long time ago

Thanks again Con
I want to improve the door seal for the winter just to keep out the snow, come spring I will have a good look at the door.

I ordered the upgraded Door seal from Scamp. It is round rubber with an adhesive on the back. They sent me enough for the whole door and the cost was only $16.00 plus shipping.

I bought closed-cell foam tape in the insulation department at Lowes, sticky backed. It comes in different widths and difference thicknesses. Cheap and effective. If it gets ripped or dirty, it's easy and cheap enough to replace.

How about flap seals? Check out SD-351 or SD-352 on Uni-Grip's website

The flapseals are just what I am looking for, my door is not that bad, in fact I think the trailer body from the door latch down has moved inward, there are 3 layers of the sticky type foam in this area. If I realign the door and use these flapseals it should be okay for now. I emailed Unigrip about contact information.
