'74 Boler weather strip installation question

Good Saturday all,

This may sound like a silly question to most but to me I can only do what I think makes sense... Without your help. I bought from Scamp the new door opening strip and it went on and looks great. However I purchased the new black door weather strip as well and and don't know which way it's intended to be applied. A,B or C ? Truth be told it didn't have any on it when I bought the trailer, and, I have never seen another Boler or Scamp before in my life. So I hate to just do what I thinks is correct. I would like to do it properly the first time and then rather than get laughed at in Winnipeg I would like to say_____ helped me with this.

It's Easter weekend so I may not get to this again till next week so until then have a Blessed Easter!

The flap or "wing" faces towards the outside of the opening, it forms a secondary seal.
I would also recommend you install the seal around the door frame not on the door, the reason being when installed around the door frame the water that runs around the door hits the weatherstrip which is secured to the door frame with the two sided tape and cannot get into the trailer. If it is installed around the door when the water enters the same area any minor gap between the seal and the door frame the water will run in. Ask me how I know this .... experience
