Question Replacing Roadtrek Air Conditioner

I plan on replacing our air conditioner on our 2000 R/T Versatile 200. One of the shops I talked to said they will need to replace the rooftop gasket.....but they are not currently available.

Has anyone else replaced their air conditioner? And needed a replacement gasket? Where did you obtain it from??

We will in a very rural area of repair options here are somewhat limited. We enjoy the country life but sometimes it is a hassle.

Thanks

Endowing the A/C compartment cover seal with the title "rooftop gasket" is over the top. It's just weather stripping. And it isn't all that important. If the seal leaks the water ends up in the A/C bay which has a raised lip on the front. If the van is not parked excessively nose down it should drain out the back.

The really critical seals are integral to the fasteners that hold down the cover. For some benighted reason Roadtrek made the holes in the body for those fasteners open to the interior. If they leak, water ends up on the bed.

Now that the old fasteners on your van have been messed with, you should check that the screws are tight and replace any that will not tighten.

The fasteners go by several names: Well nuts, insulating rivet nuts, rubber or neoprene machine screw anchors.
