Seams Between Ensolite Pieces

I removed 2 of pieces of T Moulding when I pulled out the back window of my Trillium 1300 (1976). Now the window is properly framed and sealed, but I have 2 bare seams. What should I use to reseal these. (See pic). I also hate the T Moulding that is all around the camper bc previous owner painted just the moulding a weird pink/tan and it looks crappy. Open to suggestions for removing the paint over those mouldings or do I just suck it up, clean, prime and paint? Thanks. Mel

Melissa, The T-molding that you took off should still snap back in. There should be a female groove for the bulb at the bottom of the T in the T-molding.

The existing molding can also be removed and if boiled will soften up. This is a good trick for removing the ripples that always form. If the paint on the T-molding is not flexible, it should peel off. If the previous owner used the correct paint, then it may be necessary to repaint them.

Video How To Caulk and Paint Ensolite Seams

Unlike David T, I am all for removing the T-molding, filling with acrylic caulk, and painting all of the Ensolite interior. We did that with our 1978 Trillium 4500, and MUCH prefer that to trying to maintain the T-molding.

Here is the video I did to explain how I did it:



Of course, if you want to maintain the trailer in as original shape as possible, replacing or repainting just the T-molding is always an option. Just not one I would go with.
