Sealing all Windows

Am in the process of removing all the old sealant on top of the windows and door in my trailer and next up is the front pano window. Is there an easy way to get to the top of the front pano with the lift up rock guard to get in there and scrape away old sealant and reaplly new. Thinking either remove the rock guard as the hinge appears to be screwed on (and I expect resealing those screws wouldn't be a bad thing to also seal), or perhaps be able to unhook the support arms and lift it all the way up?

Any insights would be appreciated. Have done a number of searches and unable to find a solution.

Also in this thread it was mentioned by Gene to check the 4 awing support arm brackets where they attach to the trailer and make sure they are sealed. Hadnt considered that and curious if you need to remove the brackets or just seal around them?

I don't have any leaks that I know of, but am of the belief that if I can reseal everything now, it should (fingers crossed) be tighter than it was.

I removed each bracket separately so the arm would stay in place and sealed under them and then around them when they were replaced. Since they were on a seam, any sealing should be watched carefully afterward because the odds are the slants will eventually need reapplying. A after doing this, no leaks in that area.

The Airstream is sold; a 2016 Nash 24M replaced it.
