Keystone Wiper Seal Replacement Parts

After five years of service I noticed a few tears in the seals so our Keystone Premier needed a wiper seal replacement on both slide outs. I thought about taking it in for service but I hate to pay for anything I might be able to do myself so I figured I would give it a shot. First I called the dealer where I purchased the trailer and they weren’t sure which seal type I had so they contacted Keystone. Keystone was unsure which seals were used for this model so they asked for some pictures. After sending them in neither the dealer nor Keystone had any idea.

Seals were tearing right at the 90 degree angle.

Not ready to give up I got out the inspection mirror and looked to figure this out myself. The seal had a 90 degree lip on it that was in a channel. I did some research on the internet because this trailer had a cable slide system and found that it is a Norco Accu-slide system. Luckily enough I was able to download the install manual which also included a parts list with pictures.

The seals are a BAL RV R854056 Clip in Wipe Seal. Bingo! I was able to find a couple sites that listed them online so I was able to order a 25′ strip. This was enough to go up the sides of both slideouts with a little to spare.

Keystone Wiper Seal Replacement

When it arrived I decided to give it a shot as we were getting ready to head out for a five day trip with heavy rain forecast on day one. My wife advised me not to start in case something went wrong but I decided to give it a shot. It is actually quite simple once you figure out how it goes together. The small lip of the seal has to raised ribs that lock the seal into the channel and the whole seal just slides into a track. To lock it in place the channel has the lip at the bottom just hammered in to lock it in place so it can’t slide out from the bottom.

The track is bent in at the bottom of the slide out frame. Gently open up with a screwdriver so you can remove the old seal by pulling it down and out of the track.

All you have to do is just find the area that is bent in and use a screwdriver to carefully bend the channel out enough that the seal can slide out, then the whole piece can slide out through the bottom of the channel. You then just slide the new one in being careful to keep the ribs firmly in the track so it stays locked in. Once you have it pulled to the top you can just cut off the excess with a pair of scissors and tap the channel back in with a small hammer to lock it in place. Each seal only takes about 10 minutes to install.

Slide the seal in from the bottom making sure the ribs on the 90 are pushed in so they lock into the groove. You may have to pull on it in sections as it can get a little tight as you install. Might be helpful to spray some armor all onto the grooved area to help it slide up easier.

Make sure to slide it completely to the to so it is tucked under your Horizontal Slide seal.

I hade the same issue with seals on my Passport Elite 23RB, the same seal you have. The outside seals are easy enough to change but the same seal is also on the inside. The front one on the inside near the bed is easy but can anyone tell me how to get to the one by the refrigerator?

I have a 2016 Keystone Premier and found that it has both inner and outer wiper seals. I replaced the outer seals (very easy) and found out that the inner seals were also bad. These are a lot harder to replace than the outers but can be done if you extend the slides out most of the way but not all the way out. For those needing to do this …be patient and good luck.

The inner seals need to be installed from the top down.
