A.C.E 30.2 door window fell out!

Hey guys, i hope everyone is enjoying camping season. So I open the door to enter the rig and the privacy glass from inside the door falls out. Luckily for the screen door still being attached, it never completely detaches. It seems the adhesive has given out and wont stick back on after some pressure. Not sure what happened there but any ideas on what to use to reinstall the glass the RIGHT way?

I have never had to replace or repair my old ACE door glass but there are lots of Utube videos showing how some folks do it. The one attached looks like narrow butyl tape to hold glass and frame (also provides water proofing). When you open the window frame you should be able to see what was used (if Thor used anything) to hold the glass. I would assume they used butyl tape to at least weather proof the outside window frame though.

Thank you for the response and video. I did see that the glass was held with a type of two sided adhesive rubber strip, which i want to say gave way due to age but i got the RV two years ago. So I'll chock it up to it being a quality issue.

Very common issue you would have thought factory would have corrected ALL READY??
..I did secure mine in place with temporary tape. Then sealed with bead of black 100% silicone. Let cure 24 hrs. And pulled tape off. Will hold better than Thor factory setup.

They use some sort of butyl rubber foam tape; to glue those windows into place. Ours came loose on our Outlaw, and once we found the right tape: it was an easy-peasey fix!
