Default 1996 Roadtreck Rear Door Leak

I have a 1996 Roadtreck 190, it is the Dodge with single rear door (no spare) that is leaking at the top of the door. I suspect and have in hand a new door seal but am unable to find any direction on how to install. Anyone have any experience with this? The leak is more than a drip, it is steady drips all the way across the top, lots of water. I can see where the door seal is loose in the middle which is what makes me think this is the problem.

Thanks in advance for any pointers on this!

Google "auto and marine rubber weatherseal",
you will find many options.

.

This door leak happens to many RVs of different makes.

You might not need to replace the seal,
but to add one at the door's edge.

You need to divert the water from the door before it gets into the opening.

FWIW, years ago, I met a Trekker from Canada, and he had the same type problem. He said he tried the gasket and it failed, so he had a piece of PVC Pipe that he had cut lengthwise and affixed it. It really wasn't noticeable, only to another Trekker, and he said he had it up for a few years and it did keep water out. Ron

I had my local auto shop install it. No problem for them.

Thanks! This advice was right on, I tried the Auto and Marine seal you mentioned and for $8 I had a fix instead of the $130 for a new door seal which I returned to the dealer.
