Weatherstrip for Emergency Window

I need to replace the weatherstrip for the emergency exit awning window on my 2014 21'. Does anyone have a source for a good replacement? Suggestions for installation would be welcome too. Thanks ahead.

Suggestion yes, good source for a decent replacement no.

I had to redo the lower portions of mine as they get totaled by the window frame, not a very precise fit.

I had some 1/2" x 1" neoprene stick on foam weather stripping with. I cut out the bad areas (both lower corners, cleaned off the residual glue, cut the weather stripping to sort of a laying down V with the small edge pointing towards the out side. The window closes up against it and gives me a better seal then I had before.

At the same time I used a small file and shaved don the aluminum around the glass in the corners so it would close correctly. Also drill drainage holes.

I'd take pictures but it's covered for another couple weeks.

I had to redo the egress window weather stripping on our old 17B a few years ago and called ETI to ask about it. They recommended a fairly specific type of stripping, which if I remember was 3/8 closed cell foam. Maybe shoot an email to their parts and service department to double check.
