Driver side window trim loose

Has anyone had a problem with the glass trim on the driver and passenger side windows in the cab area coming loose? It had adhesive as there is signs of it with dirt and debris there. Now the rounded corners are loose. Was wondering what type of adhesive you used to reattach it? We have a 2016 Windsport.

It was loose on the lower back side of the window. Not sure if that gap would make much noise when driving. The overlap glass trim was just put on with double stick tape. Not sure if we had noise from this or not. Our coach has had a lot of noise as we drive and we found that we have a large gap on the driver's side beside the seat where the outer shell and the interior meet. You could see the ground outside through the gap. Put caulk in the gap so will see if it is quieter next time we drive it.

I am aware of plastic trim on these windows but no glass trim. If you are talking about the black plastic trim piece it has a channel inside of which fits a rubber channel. Take the rubber channel an fit it on the glass. Then take the plastic channel and fit it over the rubber channel which is now on the the glass.

Using a rubber mallet and a bloc of wood tap the plastic channel piece into place until tight. This is a friction fit. Don't use much force and tap up and down the length of the plastic trim.

It is the dark glass that is glued to the outside edge of the window around sides. We put a clear adhesive to secure the edge down.

I guess I don't understand you. I don't think there is any glass glued to anything other than the windshield and it's mastic on my Thor. There is plastic trim though associated with the glass side windows.
