Frameless windows

I recently had to repair a second frameless window on our 2017 Venetian A40. The metal plate attached to the interior of the glass came off. Fortunately, both occasions were discovered while the coach was parked. I am aware that some similar issues were reported when RV's were in motion. The cause for my issues were discovered while I was doing regular maintenance inspection. The problem has been that the adhesive material used to attach the extension plate had dried out. The repair is fairly easy. Remove the plate, clean it. I have used double sided mounting tape to reattach the plate. The tape can be found at most hardware stores for under $6.00. So far so good.

Had one fail on our 2018 Aria while travelling. Taped it shut with gaffers tape (inside and out) to keep it shut until we got where we were going.

Gaffers tape is good to keep on hand. It's similar to duct tape but less likely to leave residue behind when removing.

The Steps to Installing a Frameless RV Window: First, remove the RV window. Look at your RV window and check the location of the screws that secure it to the RV wall. Ensure you use the correct screwdriver to loosen and remove the fasteners from their slots. The window seal should also come off when removing the old RV window, you might have to scrape the rubber seal from the perimeter. Verify the fit of the frameless window into the hole before installing it. Ensure the exterior window flange does not overlap while providing an exceptional seal to the RVís sidewall. Prepare the frameless window, then install it. Ensure the trimís correct alignment before fastening the corner screws.*

I had the same issue on 3 windows of my 2017 A40. I tried the tape but it did not work here in the heat of Las Vegas. I ended up using an epoxy that has worked as far. Our came loose while driving and had to use super glue for a short term fix. I always carry some now. My wife did not like holding the window closed for about 40 miles till I could his the next hardware store. Make sure you mark where the arm gets reattached. I have repaired 3 windows and 1 of them I'm off about an 1/8 of an inch but its enough to catch a little. Need to fix that when I have time.

Finish the frameless RV window installation by putting back the different treatments. I suggest looking at these materials and replacing them with new ones, particularly if they detract from your newly installed windowís aesthetics.
