Customer Question
I have a R-pod...

I have a R-pod (20'). Along the roof edge(s) are two Channels with a flexible plastic strip which fits into small grooves in the channel. These strips are crumbling on both sides. Can I order replacement (plastic) strips...what is the part name/number?

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your RV?

2015 R-Pod 182G

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '15 RV?

182G

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

When the fist cracks appeared I fixed them with epoxy...now them are crumbling along the entire strip and patching sports is no longer an option
