1971 Tradewind Replacement Window Doesn't Fit?
We ordered a replacement window for our 1971 Tradewind pretty much as soon as we bought her back in February. After she sat with a polisher we hired for 5 months (long story), we've finally got her at home, and our first order of business was to replace the broken window with the replacement one we bought from Inland RV.
Problem is, it doesn't seem to fit correctly. It's the right size and fits into the groove at the top of the window, but it looks like it's too curved on one side and so it closes asymmetrically and leaves a big gap (to the outside) on one side. We tried reinstalling the old frame to make sure we were doing it right, and the old frame fits like a glove (just doesn't have any glass in it).
Has anyone else experienced this? Any tips or tricks (or is there some weird law that says the curve will settle in correctly after a while?)? Or is it just a badly fit replacement product?
I'm attaching photos here--can't seem to get them rotated the right way, but I think you can still get the gist.
Thanks for any help!
