Hi all,

Just replaced the draft door on my XL and was needing to know what kind of caulk was used to seal it so I can replace it. Not real knowledgeable in this area so looking for some help.

Thanks!!

The Dude: This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you's. And, uh, lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head. Luckily I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my mind, you know, limber.

Walter Sobchak: Nihilists! *uck me. I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

    you can buy the silicone at walmart or an auto store..it's made by "permatex" and comes in different temp ranges..... gold is best.. the red will hold up just fine..... that's what i have had on gasket for the least 7 years..... thanks! ray
  • If I remember correctly, I think the stock silicone isn't high temp at all, or so that is what I was told a while back when I asked BGE. So I think a clear sealing silicone is all that is needed.

    I agree and that's all I've used in my two retros and both are holding up well for 7 years now.
