Being a brand new unit, isn't that something the dealer should take care of? Or, are you just OCD enough that you want to do it yourself. Our 2 yr old Quantum had to be resealed, EVERYWHERE.

Hi,
I just purchased a new 2018 Axis 25.2 in March. The silicone job looks the same on my motor home. Must be a manufacturing issue. Your third picture, is that your windshield? If so, mine has the same gap. Dealer is replacing the complete windshield gasket to fix it, it's on order.

Yes in fact its the bottom middle of the windshield . My wife brought it to the garage it came back with a touchup of black silicone . Its getting to a point im running up a gas bill just for all the minor / major repairs . Ouf!!
