1984 Sovereign Window Leaking

I was wondering if anyone has heard of a product called "Ten-X". My 1984 Service Manual refers to this product when sealing leaking windows. I have one of my front "curved windows" that shows it has been leaking for some time. I just purchased the trailer and wanted to make sure the window was sealed. The previous owners made a mess out of caulking the interior of the window but there are no signs of them repairing the external area where the leak may originate. I need to find a product that will seal both the interior and exterior of the window. Since Airstream referred to this product in the service manual, I thought I would start looking for it. If there are other products out there, please let me know. Thanks!!!!!

Tenex sealer is a thing of the past.

It's basic problem was that it would harden, turn black and then curl up and peel off.

The material used today is called Par-bond. It is used for small seams.

The correct kind of vulkem, is used for large seams.

Thanks, I dont know what caused this window to leak but, it looks like it needs a good seal all the way around it inside and out. ARe there any tricks to applying this stuff?
