Are the gaskets replaceable? Nothiced door leaks ontop right


They recommend to wash them with a mild soap to help soften them up, and clean the gunk off. But yes, I'm sure they are replaceable if needed.

Have you tried to adjust the top latch on the door.. I did this on mine and it corrected the issue.. I also would give the gasket a good cleaning as well..

i do have a question... what is the diamond plate on the side of the box for?

Yeah, it keeps the rain off of the gasket, and it also keeps the direct heat off of the paint above the firebox. It gets really hot in there.
