Rear window gasket

I have a 2018 Thor Freedom Elite 26HE. My rear emergency window outside gasket has come out where the seam is. I can't get it to reinstall like its from the factory. Is there a trick to it? I can see how it goes, but I can't get it to squeeze into place. In the pic, it is the bottom center. My pic is rotated 90 degrees. Any help or advice would be great. I don't have access to a repair shop for another month or so. Thanks, Brian

Happened to me. Heated it with hair dryer and forced it back into place. Two years and holding.

were you able to get It to seat tight against the window by doing this?

Yes. You will probably break a few fingernails, but it will go back. Give it a try. The warmer out the better as the rubber will be more pliable. The hair dryer should warm the rubber but not so much that you burn your fingers pushing it back in.
