Bending Windows and Bubbles...

Hi everyone. I swear I searched for answers before I posted this! Two things:

On my '75 Tradewind I have a window below my vista window that has a pretty large gap between the frame and the trailer. It looks like the window is bent on one area of the frame and I'm wondering how to 'bend' it back without breaking the window. The gap is too big to simply put bigger weather stripping in.

That same window and it's twin on the other side have 'bubbles' in them. I know this is a common problem on Airstreams of this era because I've seen others that have it too. No easy fix on this I'm guessing. Is separating the panes, cleaning (scraping more like it), and rebuilding them the only way?

Thanks in advance for the info!
