Never, ever, use any type of silicone sealer on the exterior.

Use Vulkem, Sikoflex, or Parbond.

Hi Pete,
Thanks for the update. Ouch to the windows being siliconed shut! Lucky mine hasn't been 'upgraded' like yours.
Thanks, Derek

A PO siliconed the windows, seams, fans, and everything else that might leak...still had leaks, and I never did get all the silicone off...just hope the new owner didn't credit me with the left-overs...mike

6' Vertical Lip seal #34713 = $11.70
6' Fin seal #34681 = $15.90
This makes me wonder what it would take to replace each and every window, which I know ALL of mine need!
Discovered this morning, after the HARD rains we had in Central Florida yesterday, that I had water 'standing' next to the lamp on the rear shelf window. Guess I need to figure out how to seal that area. Window is 'kinda' protected from the winds, so know that there wasn't any possible way for winds to blow in the water. Any thoughts suggestions?
Thanks, Derek

Thanks Steve, will look at both front and back marker lights after work, and after Home Depot run. Want some of the 'D' channel molding you put on your exterior drawers. Found wet areas along top of front side windows this afternoon. Gotta get all of the water stuff taken care of, before I start ripping up carpet and finding rotted sub-flooring. Thanks, Derek

window fixes

Can someone post a step by step process/pictures to fix the side windows? Or if there is a thread, can someone post it here?

Thanks!
Sonia

Ok, I finally found it. Chaplain Kent posted this over 6 years ago, before he sold his Airstream motorhome and went to an Airstream TT. Before you start, call Andy at Inland RV. He'll make sure you have plenty of material to do the job. Then post here the outcome.
Thanks, Derek
