1975 Service manual - Windows

Hi there.

I am trying to find information on how to remove, reseal and reinstall my Dad's 1975 Tradewind Airstream. Does your service manual have this kind of detailled information?
Thank you!
Ghislain

Hello Ghislain. Welcome to AIR Forums!

I've moved your question to its own thread. That other thread was 7 years old and your inquiry might have gotten lost.

The most common job on resealing windows is replacing the gaskets. Is that what you are asking about? Please describe your particular needs on this subject.

Common parts sources for gasket material (in reverse alphabetical order while standing on my head -- I keep rotating this order... ) are Vintage Trailer Supply, Out of Doors Mart and Inland RV.

The service manual will detail just about everything you could want to do with your trailer.

If you are just replacing the gaskets on the windows that open, I doubt you need the service manual for that. To remove a window you disconnect the opening arms (one screw on each arm), open them 90 degrees and they will fall out of the hinge (be careful). You then remove the gasket, clean the surface and glue a new gasket in place. Getting them back into the hinge can be tricky.

Hi Richard and Bob!

Thank you for your help!

Bob, thank you for creating this tread. I am new to this and you are right, a new thread makes sense.

I will try to take a picture of the windows I am talking about Thre are not the ones that open. Those, I think I could handle. They are the ones that are doubled panes and are fixed (without any removing parts I can see.). They are starting to show signs of mildew as well.

I'll get back with a picture later this aft.

Thank you again.
Ghislain

Windows - Service Manual

These five pages are all that are in the manual. Not very helpful for things like gaskets.

Ghislain? Zep? Are we being asked about the double paned wing windows on trailer front?

Hi Bob and Zep.

Thanks for the pages, I will take a closer look once I print them.

I am trying to upload pictures in this tread but I am not certain I will be successful.

Yes, Bob, hose are the ones I am talking about.

Hi Bob.

I guess I was wrong. I am sorry. By the pictures, you can now better see which windows I am talking about.

Let me know if you find anything about how to repair them.

In your photo, the bottom window is single pane--you might fix it witha small bead of vulkem, but you may need a new gasket.

The upper window is a real problem. If you have the version that retains the inner pane using a "C" clip, then you can take the clip out and remove the inner pane without removing anything else. If the frame is solid around the inner and outer panes, then you have to unrivet the whole frame, take it out, unrivet the frame itself and take it apart. The problem is, finding a strip of butyl that is the right thickness to put between the panes.

The mess inside the window is solar film. You can scrape it out without damaging the outer pane, which is glass. Sometimes the inner panes are plastic.

I have a 75 TW also. My vista view windows are just as Zep described. They have the inner removable ring with the inner surface being Plexiglas. The inner film in mine is just as ugly. I need to take mine apart as well, but mine do not leak.

The other window might just need a new gasket.

Thank you Zep.

You confirm my worst case scenario. I have to unrivet. I'll try to find a professional around here that coulddo the work.

If anyone in Québec, preferably around Montreal knows how to deal wth this, please, let me know.

At this moment, I envy you Richard.

Thank you all for the good help.
