    Hello all--The half door on my pup appears to have a big enough gap that it allow dust/dirt to inside---it doesn't appear to have any water problems anywhere in the floor or in the cabinets closest to the door. I am concerned that this could be a future problem, especially if driving in the rain.

    Would I just use some standard weather stripping or foam weatherstripping and glue it around the door?

    Thank you

    Ok--I'll try posting this question again----upon further inspection the seal around the half door appears to have one side of the weatherstripping inserted into a slot in the door. Does anyone know where I can get this specific kind of door weatherstripping for this popup?

    Or have you used just regular foam weatherstripping and glued it on?

    Thank you

    I have a couple larger gaps on the top corners of my half door / step when in the closed position and the top down also. I have wondered if in fact there is a seal of some sort missing also.

    thanks! I look at it closer and compare---I don't remember any screws holding it in--it just seemed to be pushed into a slot in the door

    ok--the seal I'm looking for is a seal that goes around the inside of the door frame, not the one on the top of the short door. It should form a tight seal between the sndies of the door and the body frame so no water or dirt can get inside the door.

    I looked at the seals on the colemanpopupparts.com, but did not see what I was looking for---I'm going to try and call them and hopefully they will be able to help.

    Thank you all

    I purchased this tiny rubber seal just recently if this is what you are after. It is a rubber bulb seal that goes into a channel all around the inside door frame sides and bottom. They just slide in. They are very tiny 1/4 inch. I think I got it from Forest River INC.
