sorry to ask this question, as I am pretty shure that I read an answer to it somewhere here, but I am at the Airfield at the moment to work on our Airstream and the Airfield CEO allowed me to use his internet connection so I want to keep it shorttime...
I am in replacing all gaskets (the black 2 lip stuff) and discoverd that the gasket between the glass and the alu-frame is shortend in some areas (see pic) can anybody out there tell me what to do? I think replacing is not a very good solution as it looks not too easy too take the windoe apart... Anything else??
Thanks for your help folks!!
Bjoern in the middle of nowhere...

I don't think you need to do anything. However, I haven't seen this on any of my windows on my early 70's Airstreams, so I dont' know what kind of leak might exist now that the gasket flange has been pulled away. If you feel you need to prevent any further bad effects from the shortening, I'd cut the gasket, allowing you to push the edge back in. Then I'd fill the gap with something like Vulkem.
