Vacuum gasket.

I replaced mine in my pre filter box yesterday and boy my back hurts now, lol.
I think the gasket in my waste tank also needs to be replaced, it’s just a pita to strip the old ones off, I just used screwdriver to strip them off, any better suggestion ? I was thinking of using goof off but not sure if it’s save on aluminum or not.

A heat gun is one of those things that us cold weather cleaners always have on-hand. If you don't, they are cheap and also very helpful for removing decals and signage.

What do you think about this ? Seems convenient with the adhesive already there, no mess, my concern is the quality of the rubber as well as the adhesive, but then again, even with regular gasket I got from JD, it only last a good year or so before it starts to fall apart.

That made me laugh...that is just a roll of "camper seal" the auto parts stores sells. For them to call that something special for TM's is laughable. I have used camper seal in the past and it will work, but it will not last very long. IF you want to try it, just go down to the auto parts store and pick up a roll.

I have used a drill with a wire brush to remove the glue from the waste tank lid

That would certainly do it as well pretty quickly.
