Black window seal

I noticed on my Vegas 24.1 that the back bedroom windows and the living room windows the black seal is dropping on each upper corner. It appears the glue did not hold. I currently do not have any signs of water.

Bedsides attempting to glue back into place does anyone have any other thoughts?

Cut and then add another piece?

looking for ideas since I don't think regluing is going to work. The black weather stripping is too tight?

Problem is not limited to your model. - our 2015 Challenger has been doing the same thing. Interested in any solution. It looks like foam was pulled to tight/stretched to get it around the corners.

Hi Andy,

My weatherstripping on the passenger side screen is also loose. I was wondering what kind of glue you used for your repair.

Thanks

Count me in

Same thing happened on passenger window in the corner of my 2014 Hurricane. I'm guessing the rubber was stretched too tight and then heat, concentrated from the glass shrunk it.

I believe the seals on the Thor Hurricane are Vinyl per the Manual. Trying to find out if they are rubber or vinyl. The manual says to treat with Silicone spray.
Would love clarification. Thx!

This happened on my first motorhome back in the 80s. I used a wooden spoon and pushed them back into place. No glue was used. Now a days, I treat all rubber seals and such regularly with a silicone spray from Wal Mart.

After reading these posts and pondering and just purchased 303 Aerospace Protectant for Rubber, Vinyl and UV Protection. It's the perfect 303 product. Thanks everyone for your help
