    Roof rubber treatment

    Hi! Ant. Just a thought. You recommend coating the window rubbers in Vaseline for the winter. I imagine on a Hylo coating the rubber seal under the lifting roof with Vaseline is a no no due to the Vaseline getting on the canvas infill. i s there anything we could or should coat that rubber with? Thanks. Graham and Carole

    Hi Graham and Carole.
    You could use Vaseline on the rubbers, when I suggest using Vaseline on Rubbers I don't mean plaster them in it, all it needs is a smear that almost disappears into the rubber while you're putting it on. If you put too much on you might get some black marks on the roof, to avoid this I sometimes heat up some vaseline until it's a thin liquid then apply it thinly.

          This morning I noticed a black streak going down from one end of the side window. Am wondering what exactly caused it (obviously something to do with the rubber seal / sealant?) and how best to remove it and to stop it happening again. ....I haven't treated the rubber seals with vaseline or anything yet.

            Hi Sue.
            The streaks are more likely to be from general road dirt washing off the roof. Any TFR ( Traffic film remover) will shift it while you're washing the van. To help reduce the streaking in future polish the roof.
            Thanks

              Thanks, Ant. I had better start doing the Karate kid actions then...keep putting it off! But the streak did seem to start from the window...
