So I called Hehr Window in Elkhart In. Their web page is Parkin Accessories. When you call them you get a real live person. If you ever need to replace an RV window they make most of the windows installed in the industry. The young man I talked to said the window is supposed to be installed with a foam gasket. He also said most of the windows that leak were not installed correctly, the gasket slipped out of place or the installer blew off using the gasket and relied on RTV to "seal" the window. I ordered the foam gasket material from them cost was $20. I suppose I could have gotten something at Maynards or Home Deposit for less money but the young guy on the phone was very helpful and I figure what the hay I might as well use what the RV is suppled with when it is built. 1 more trip for the rig this fall then I will get the two G-sons over here to help with the R&R of the window gasket.
Sorry. Just now saw your post. Yes we have pulled a window. Itís a 2 person job to do it right. With someone holding the outside window, remove the screws holding the inner trim. Remove the trim. Kind be very difficult if any of the screws were cross threaded as ours were. Then go outside and drop the window. Clean it up good. The ďDĒ seal is the real seal. I used a little pro cell gel to hold the d seal against the coach. Then carefully place the window back in the hole making sure not to move or fold the seal. One person holds the window while the other goes inside and reinstalls the trim piece. Tightly snug the screws. But donít bear down too tight. I still glopped the top and sides once completed.
Now, all that being done still didnít fix the leaks. Several of the cab marker light seals were hard and allowing water to follow the wiring down to the where the dash meets the wall. Also the magnetic satellite antenna was not sealed at all. Once everything else was sealed Iím now a year out with no further water intrusion.
