window weatherstripping advice

So i ordered some weatherstripping from inland rv that came in today and i started to replace the old one. I had already stripped the old stuff so i went right into installing the new. I put the adhesive on both window and weatherstripping and started at the bottom and noticed that the new stuff overhangs the window. That is where I'm not sure I have to right stuff. What was your experiences with the stuff that Andy suggested?? i have posted some pics to show you what I'm talking about.

this is from the front of the window.




here is a close up



and one from the back to see where i am placing the new one.

Window Seal

Looks like you will need to trim it at the edge of the frame after the adhesive is dry. Or not, If you don't mind the excess. If it looks uniform all the way around you might want to leave it. I think Airstream trims the excess. Maybe Andy can tell you for sure. Ed

ok thanks ed. I'm don't think i should cut it as it is the D gasket and that would be making and opening in the D. It is uniform all the way around so it doesn't bother me. i guess i will leave it. Is there any way for me to contact andy throughout the forums so i can ask him directly?

tlynn....Andy is usually lurking around every day or so and will probably respond here soon...

I'm watching, as I have to 'tackle' this project in the near future as well...

tlynn, I'm sorry for saying to trim your new gasket. From the photos I thought it was a flat gasket not the (D) gasket. I am confused as to why you would need to place the gasket on the edge of the window aluminum edging as opposed to placing it on the trailer window frames where the windows would close on the gasket to compress it and cause it to seal. Sorry for my confusion as on my trailer my glass is not framed and the closing of the glass does compress the "D" gasket to cause it to seal. Ed
