Default Frozen Doors

Well folks, I am living the dream. The wife and daughter get the garage and my truck sits outside (Michigan). I have had a rough go with the doors sticking to the rubber seals and will not open.

I had tried some silicone on the seals last year and it helped a little but not consistently and didn't last long.

Anyone have any luck with a certain product?

Thanks!

When I lived in NY, I rubbed a thin coat of Vaseline on the weather stripping. Worked pretty well until I washed the car. With as inexpensive as that stuff is, its not a big deal to reapply it every week or so.

Wouldnt a dry graphite lubricant work better? Might want to give that a try.. Just an idea.
