Rubber moulding around windows

Post by KYAvion » Sun Aug 20, 2017 5:44 pm

So I'm driving down the road and see something flapping around-- it's the rubber moulding that goes around the bathroom window! I can easily push the moulding back in place, but do people use some kind of adhesive to help keep it in place?

Is that the screw cover? Or the glazing around the window panes?

Either way, they should stay in place by themselves. Maybe, like mine, it is time to consider replacing. Mine isn't coming loose.... it has shrunk and has gaps that I don't like seeing.

It's the rubber moulding that goes over the screws, so I guess it's the screw cover. The moulding seems pliable and doesn't seem dry at all, so I'm not sure why it would have popped out. I've noticed on some windows the corners come out (maybe expansion/contraction with temp changes), and I can just push them back into place.

The glazing that goes around the windows is available from Interstate RV Metal & Supply. We have a 1975 28' LaGrand and used part # 009-344. It fit the side and rear windows perfectly but the front curved glass was a problem as the sealing mastic has allowed the glass to "shift" a bit after 42 years. We have lived in SW Florida for the last seven years and the heat caused the mastic to get a bit soft. We will be taking the coach up to Cayo Repair in Michigan in November and Chuck Cayo is going to re-set the glass with an automotive type sealant. He told me that is what trailers that are exposed to high heat and humidity such as in Florida need to keep the glass stable. I ordered enough new glazing so he can complete the job.
