Most late 50s and early 60s vintage trailers used Hehr Series 1600 1626 Jalousie windows. The plastic backing of this pile weatherstrip is identical to the width and thickness of the original aluminum-backing. Please see notes below for help in replacing the pile weatherstripping in your windows.

Based on the condition of the interior surface of the aluminum channel, the weatherstripping may either easily slide into the aluminum channel or, in some cases, be met with resistence due to corrision on the internal channel surface. If you meet resistence while sliding the weatherstripping into the channel, we recommend the following procedure:

1. Two people are required.

2. To remove the old weatherstripping, using a pair of needle nose pliers, one person should grab the bottom of the strip with the pliers and lightly pull down while the second person uses a small screw driver to simultaneously push down against the pile. The strip should gradually slide down a little each time you push and pull.

3. The new weatherstripping can be inserted once again by two people. We first add a small amount of Dawn liquid dish soap to help the plastic backing slide in the grove. The first person should begin pushing the weatherstripping into the slot. After several inches have been inserted, you may not be able to push the backing into the strip. At this point, the second person should begin to use the small screw driver to push "up" against the weatherstripping while the first person continues to push the weatherstripping into the slot. One person should also move the glass holders back and forth while inserting the strip.

4. Initially, until the weatherstripping pile wears-in, there may be some resistance while closing the window, with the crank, due to the pile rubbing against the aluminum window frames. To minimize this resistance, we recommed that you polish the edge of the aluminum window frames where they contact the pile. Over time, as the window is used, this resistance will subside. By the way, new trailers purchased in the 1950s and 1960s with these windows had the same issue of wear-in with the weathrstripping pile.
