Gasket is not used between the glass and metal frame of the fixed windows.

A "D" shaped gasket, #45370 is used on the back side of the opening window and the entrance door, as well as the access doors.

If your in the gasket replacing mode, check the sewer vent pipe gaskets. They have a life span of 5 years or so.

On the topic of Gasket replacement and leak control. I have two top mounted Vista View Windows that both have really bad leaks. I am assuming that I can take out the mounting screws, the glass will fall back- into the trailer, and then I can clean and prep the frame for new Butyl tape before replacing the glass and securing with the screws. Is this right? has anyone done this one before?

You don't need to do that.

Clean the glass to metal junction, so that it's chemically clean.

Apply a nice neat bead of Vulkem sealer to the glass/metal junction.

That sealing job will out last you.
