Trillium Hehr window drip strip.

I have nice new drip strip from Interstate to install. The old stuff is brittle and breaking off. How have folk removed the old and inserted new? Space seems tight to slide it in past frame and is the 'slot' nipped to hold old strip in? I tried removing the top pane but could not lift it off hinges. If I can only achieve strip swap by taking window apart, please let me down slowly as my windows have already been resealed with new butyl and ply. Thanks!

I don't think the groove the top moulding goes into is crimped, it should just slide out. If you remove the upper window pane it will give you a little more room to work, just have to remove the 2 screws on each side that connect the aluminum side opening mechanist to the window pane.

The new strip is very flexable, so it will actually slide in much easier than taking the old brittle one out.

Thanks Ian,
I had no luck lifting out that top pane after I removed the two screws either side. There is less wiggle room than the lower panes, which I have removed before. I'll try again and wiggle harder. Cheers! Doug

Dave,

You can also check out this site: Interstate RV Metal & Supply

Scroll down to rubber parts.

Also, pretty much everything else you need for rebuilding windows.

Whether Vintage Trailer or Interstate... S&H can be a concern depending on Canadian or USA. Pay attention.. keep bucks in your pockets.

I ordered my drip strip from interstate; you can have it in any colour,as long as it's black. I also ordered the bottom seal. $30 shipping, arrived in 5 days. I have still to try removing the top pane, again, as we are now on holiday in the Trillium. Not many 'drips' in Kelowna yet!

Just as a comparison I ordered through Vintage Trailer Supply the Jalousie J-Seal (24') for the side and bottom of each window and the Jalousie Header & Sill Seal (10') for the top.
Total cost was $41.03 which included $13.35 for shipping. Package was shipped Feb 10 by USPS and arrived on Feb 19.

Doug, how did Interstate ship your seals USPS or Courier?

Trillium Hehr window drip strip.

Doug,, I have that same window except that it is in a scamp. wondering if you have ever found or heard of a rubber seal that folds over those edges to cover the screws. or does one just silicone or butyl the holes before you put in the screws and leave them exposed? Bob

There is a cover for the screws around the window:
Hehr Screw Cover, Molding

But it is mostly decorative. The screws go through the window flange, which should have butyl putty behind it. That is what will keep the water out.

Lots of people don't use, or can't find the cover.

I'd add the caveat that if screws with heads bigger/fatter than the originals are used on the windows, that screwcover molding may not fit. The picture below from the thread starter appears to show a head size big enough to have caused some deformation of the channel the molding snaps onto.

Coming back to this as I tried again to remove the top window unit to change out my old drip strip. I've removed the lower ones easy enough to replace glass but there appears to be lack of wiggle room for the top unit to come out. Maybe I can only do this if I remove the entire window and dismantle select parts of the frame, but I've already re-Butyled 3 out of 4 windows. Any ideas? Has anyone actually removed top window unit?
Oh, Ian G, my stripping was UPS's from the US. Thanks!

It will be much easier if you remove the upper window, Just remove the 4 screws as I mentioned iwhen you initially posted. You should not have to remove the entire window, just the upper window.
