2014 Itasca Sunstar 27N Slide Out Bulb Seals

My slide wipers are okay after 10 years, but the bulb portion is splitting. It was a two-part system in 2014.

All of the Steele Rubber products seem to be wrong for WBO, as in reversed at the base attachment from male to female.

Can one of you experts on the parts diagrams software figure out the part number for the bulb?

Or has anybody found a work-around product?

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Dan

PS I would replace it all, but it's almost $600 for all new wipers and bulb assembly...

Some guessing needed, so be alert to bad info if it looks wrong!
Maybe take a look at this drawing to see if it matches what you have or if we need to look at a different part.
I think I see a wiper with a male edge which would fit into a female item attached to the RV! That might match what you have?
A picture to spot each part and then match it up with the part description and item number on the list? This is looking down at corner at left of front slide with the same 74&75 listed across top and down each side.

There is a part 76 which I was never able to get a good look at but it appears to be behind the other parts but along the bottom instead of sides?

Do you have a specific slide and are they different on different slides? This is front left slide (behind driver?) and the left edge as looking from outside.
It looks like the small rear left slide has a different setup with the wipers at the outer edge rather than inner.
How many or which might be needed as they appear to be different?

Can you help home in on the parts you need. I'm betting they are pricey little bit of rubber!

First, Thank you Morich. You are always spot on with the answers!

Correct, I need the yellow bulb in your pic. The slide seal system on my rig are all the same, all slides, and top, bottom, and sides. They are two parts, a bulb strip and a combined track and wiper piece, which the bulb strip slides into.

Everything Steele Rubber has, and everything else I have found on the web is reversed - female on the bulb and male on the motorhome track.

Strange - I wonder where WGO got these?

I am calling the yellow part male, and the blue part female.

The purple parts, I don't know what they are.

The blue part, track, has the wiper seal attached to it. I can get by with no new blue parts.

But I am looking for 35 feet of the yellow part.]

Thanks again

Digging on search for those part numbers but not certain which I was chasing, I found a note that it is recommended part to stock! So maybe dealers carry it?

But then I also found a page of possible interest here:
https://www.desertcart.us/products/1...-slideout-seal

Check the right part number and such before trusting but the interesting part might be that it is a Swintech part and this gives a manufacturer name and the number they use as an alternate idea to chase?
Maybe it comes in like 1000 foot rolls and they cut to length?

Just picked up that I was chasing the other part of the system but I then chased the 184913 part and found a post that might add some light?

It is the yellow bulb. The post you found was exactly right.

Available at Lichstein for $1.89 a foot - not bad, I guess!
THANKS again.

Sometimes, I'm okay with just getting forward movement on an issue.
Enjoy when we can?

Side Note:

If the track/wiper portion is coming loose from the rig, commonly available double stick tape will not work!

Maybe the super stuff available at body shops, but not the hardware store kind...

Contact cement, properly dried before attaching, does work very well.
