Window revamp
Hi there,
I’m also at the same stage with my van and need to re-seal all my windows.
I have an uncle who works for a caravan company and he told me that if you’re rubber seals have perished slightly, give them a wash with hot soapy water to remove any algae type stuff and soften the rubber, then rub them with glycerine. Glycerine is a natural preservative.
It’s also a humectant (attracts and traps moisture) so I wondered if maybe an after coat of something like Lanolin, Carnauba or Japan wax would seal them further and prevent any more growth and perishing.
