Thumbs up

I was just digging through some old window threads and found this one ... Welcome to the Globetrotter club! I have a '65, and it's been the perfect size trailer for our needs.

But back to windows ... I would have to second the previous poster's idea -- elbow grease, acetone (or something similar) and a plastic scraper should do the trick. Not much fun, but you'll like the results in the end.

Geez! And I thought I was the first person to discover that silicone is soluable in acetone.

I spen't about 8 hours last weekend digging the stuff out of the gasket grooves in the bathroom. Next I'll clean up the frame, order new gaskets, get a new sheet of glass cut to replace the (*(%)_&^foggy plastic, and put it back together again. I may wait just awhile to be sure that we see no more rain until August
