Gasket for small crank window in Boler door

I have a 1979 boler 13 footer. I'm trying to remove and reseal the small crank window in the door. Does anyone know how to remove the rubber gasket going around the bottom and two sides of the window frame? Do you know where I can get a new gasket? Does anyone know what the window is called? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I tried using the google search of the site but can't get it to work.

If yours is like mine the gasket folds over the over the frame and rivets go through the frame and the gasket to secure it.

Here's some pics of what I have. Don't know if yours is the same style of crank out jalousie

But I got my replacement gasket material from vintagetrailergaskets.com. Really helpful and good to deal with.

Hope this helps.

Did you do anything special to install it? I assume you have to make holes for the rivets to pass through but I am looking for any other steps.

The only thing I did other than punch through for the rivet holes (I just used an awl) was to cut the seal in a V at the corners and then once I had the seal all fitted in place around the frame used some RTV sealant on the back side where the V joined. Probably didn't need to do that but better safe than sorry I thought.

All in all pretty straight forward.

Glad I could help! Also just fyi when I did mine I needed to fix up the crank assembly and got the parts from vintagetrailersupply.com They had all the other bits I needed.
