Steering Boot - source?

Recommended Posts

While replacing my flooring, I finally found the source of that draft of hot and cold air ever time a big rig passes me...

Apparently, the previous owner had cut the steering boot away at some point. Or maybe it got hung up and torn away...  in any event, there are now just ragged rubber edges where it used to be...

I’m having trouble finding a replacement  I feel like this is something a truck shop should have. REV has the original part listed on their site but does not stock it.

If anyone has a good idea where to source this boot it would be greatly appreciated  

The installed boot should look like this (not my coach):

And new exact OEM replacement for a 2006 Dip from REV looks like this (if they had them in stock 🤦🏻‍♂️)...

On Amazon do a search for “replacement universal boots for steering boots”, you might find something that will work or be modified to work.

Here is an example of one.     If you can't find anything better something like this may be adaptable.

Be sure the split is facing towards the front of the coach. Put some insulation inside of it.
