Window Plastic Screw Covers
 
Replacing all screws with stainless on our 25 year old 1550. Some of the plastic covers are broken. Is their a source for these?

Thank you

Can you be more specific about these plastic covers?

Norm,

You are not alone! Almost all Sunline's I see with square windows have this problem. My 2251 had lost almost all of the trim and had to be replaced. I turned to the guys at All-Rite. They have your trim. If you can salvage a piece off, a cross section should look like this:

It's called the Rigid Screw Cover, available in 8' Sections of Black, Brown, Polar White, or Colonial. Since yours is a '82, I'd personally recommend the Polar White, since your exterior is more white than the '83's dark tan. I also think the Colonial would look good, depending on how dark it is compared to your coach.

Last time I checked, All-Rite couldn't help me with the trim for around the entry door and compartment doors. On their website, it looks like they now carry the right piece, but I'd check with them first if you need some. It looks like it could be the Phillips Screw Cover.

Remember, these parts are based on what I found for my '94, so the parts may differ for a unit 12 years older.

Good Luck!

P.S. The correct model number for your Sunline is not T-1550. The model number 1550 didn't come into effect until 1983, when Sunline went to all numeric model numbers. Prior to that (including 1982), the model number was 15 1/2 SB (15.5 SB as I call it), with SB meaning either Super Bath or Super Bed. The meaning changed between years and models, so I don't know which one it was.

Window Plastic Screw Cover Description
 
On the T-1550 all the windows are held in with screws.

The screws are covered by a u-shaped white plastic extrusion about 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 inch deep.

It is a very thin plastic material that after 25 years is very fragile. In addition it collects water, hastening rust, and other living and non living material.

I would like to replace the broken pieces if possible. Looking for possible source.

I too would like to replace my brittle and cracking window screw covers. I have a 95 T- 2251 and the covers measure 5/8" wide. The only thing I could find on the web was A Hehr product and they are 11/16" wide.

Does anyone know if these will fit?? Or where I can find the 5/8??

Thanks

I got 16 feet of that stuff from Flagg RV | RV Dealer Massachusetts, Rhode Island l West Boylston And Uxbridge, MA RV Sales |. They're my local shop- I ordered it on Wed and it was there on Friday. It cost me a total of $12.00. It even matched in color! I had to pull the windows out and replace the tape, and then I replaced all the screws with stainless steel. Since my screw covers were wrecked, I asked the guy who works the parts counter when I went in to buy the butyl tape.

Hi, thanks for the response. Yesterday I was getting ready to order the covers online and then decided to call an RV dealer about 30min from me. (Campers Inn in Merrimack NH. They actually have the stuff in stock and plenty of it. I bought 64ft for about $32. Should be enough to do all the windows. Pretty easy to remove old covers and install new ones. I decided to buy them locally because the shipping costs were ridiculous, they have to ship the 8ft lengths in tubes.
