    Question for you hybrid owners -

    Do any of you lubricate the rubber seals on the bunks? If so, what do you use?

    Good question. I am not a hybrid owner but I would think a light coat of vaseline would be sufficient.

    That's what i do with my cars and I believe the seal is the same. On my cars it helps keep water off the rubber and in the winter when it freezes at night I don't have frozen door syndrome....

    I use spray silicone on rubber seals. My TT and several of my vehicles are 20+ years old. Their window and door gaskets are still soft and pliable.

    I put a little marine grease on a rag and wipe the seals, etc. down. I have been doing this for years even on the truck door seals. I also use on re-pack of wheel bearings. I have Never had a problem.
