Hehr window seals - current suppliers? Or anybody have extra for sale?!

I've read the various threads on replacement seals for the square Hehr jalousies (rear, over dinette) - but can't find a current supply of one seal.

--- The black plastic rigid screw cover that goes at the top/sides is no longer supplied by Pelland. Any luck elswhere?

--- The grey header seal has me stumped. Several reference using this:

But my window looks like this (see the grey torn seal at the top of the pane) - and the curve of the referenced seal, would go away from the window - not into it. Unless I'm seeing it wrong?

The seal you want is this one Jalousie Header Seal

I just replaced/installed it on both my Jalousie windows yesterday.

And like you...... I'm now trying to find some replacement screw cover trim.

Know what you mean, I did find the cream coloured screw covers. I purchased what I thought I needed but needed another 5 ft....BUt no longer availible. I did manage to find 10 ft in a roll at other RV shop in the back (dusty) room.

I replaced my black screw cover with a new one from here.

It was cheap and fit perfectly. Sold by the foot. This should be available everywhere

Another source!

Thanks all! I have found an additional source that actually has 3 seals we need for these old jalousies, and these include the rigid black screw cover... I spoke with Maria at All-Rite who confirmed the Hehr 4900 Bottom Vent seal, Hehr 4900 Top Vent seal, and Hehr screw cover --- should all work. Advanced Search Result - RV Parts, RV Parts Manufacturer ,RV Accessories, RV Windows and Custom RV Parts @ All-Rite

One more question tho - is the grey seal around the pane in my window - just the glazing channel (Pelland does still have this: 1/8" Glass Glazing Channel H210-490) that is coming up outside of the Aluminum frame? Or would this seal even show?

Is the Hehr 4900 top vent seal the replacement for the seal at the bottom of each glass frame. I have been looking for the seal (7/16" long - gray in colour) and cannot find anywhere. I went to the link and looked at the profile. It looked similar, but there are no dimensions. It could be two feet long.

I found the picture that I took when I tried to get this window seal previously. Has anyone found this seal. This is on all early Bolers (72 through 75) made in Peace River Alberta

Are yours Hehrs? I looked at my windows last night - they don't have a seal or a place for one, like yours do. I have a 72 Boler American from Wichita, KS - so obviously different plant - tho I'd guess Hehr windows in the same year would be similiar. So I wonder if I don't have Hehrs, or if you don't?

Yes mine are Hehrs. They have a sticker on them. As I said all of my Boler friends here in Vancouver have the same windows, from the same plant in Northern Alberta

Have you tried Pelland Enterprises? They have a lot of parts for Hehr windows.

Both Pelland and Interstate said they no longer carry seals that work specifically in square windows - and I've found old images online from their sites, that aren't in stock any longer. Pelland does have the seal (link earlier in the thread) that fits against the panes as well as channel glazing- but not the outside trims needed. Also, Vintage Trailer Supply does have the upper header seal as others have mentioned, but not the square trim. All-Rite is the only place I've found that says they carry trim for square Hehrs (except the glazing).
