Sorry, I have no idea how it seals, all our seals have been replaced, but by the guys in the shop - by front to you mean cab side windows?

The windows are by and large the same across the Argosy/Excella/Classic ranges so maybe worth searching all those forum.

Slider Window Seal Wrinkle

Finished the front slider, passenger side, and used 3M weatherstripping adhesive for the main channel material. Next question for anyone who has done one is:

How can I work the wrinkles out of the outer seal curve? It's like this on the top as well.

An exacto knife applied to the peak of each wrinkle.

Good suggestion and should make it lay down. The exacto knife thing occured to me. Any reason to think it would tear the seal when the window is slid back and forth? Thought maybe it could be worked out either by light stretching or something like that. Heat ????

All ideas welcomed.......Surely someone has dealt with this before.

Thanks

Warm gently with hair dryer or a real heat gun? Sneak up on it gradually so nothing melts.

I had the same issue. I left it. I assume the weep holes are for the excess...

I think the window design on the MH is lacking in many ways.

Well that's certainly the truth even if it doesn't solve my problem !!!! But...Something about this ole tub that tends to make me overlook that.

Thanks....

Smile Possible parts for your Argosy?

Are you still working on your Argosy? I don't see any posts since last August, but maybe that's just the slider windows info.

We have a 79/80 Airstream motorhome 28' that is painted and has the steel caps front & rear. I believe it was built as an Argosy, sold as an Airstream in the year Airstream converted them from Argosy to Airstream. It's a rear bath, originally mid-twin beds, we think.

Anyway, it has some severe damage to the skin on the back left corner from a tree falling on it. The slider windows in the front are not damaged, other than their age. We haven't decided what to do with it. I hate to just scrap the whole thing. My husband had it running last summer and moved it on our property. There may be other parts you could use.

We can send pictures if you are interested at all and discuss the possibilities. We are located 40 miles west of Albany, NY, just off the NYS Thruway.

Hi, there is a separate thread on the rebuild (http://www.airforums.com/forums/f310...ad-125552.html).

I did buy a 28ft as a donor, and stripped the windows and other parts from it.
