1979 Trillium 4500 Rear Escape Window seals

Hello and Happy Canada Day!!

Our family is new to the Trillium camper thing. We bought one last fall and have been working on it since off and on. We camped last weekend and it was great.

Our back escape window leaks a bit and I started to dig through the mountain of silicone that has been applied over the last 36 years....I found out that, besides the latches on the bottom of the window, only silicone was holding it to the camper. The screws on the hinges were missing altogether....

More importantly, my window seems to have an additional lip which I have taken a picture of that requires an additional seal to prevent leaks over and above the drip lip seal that is mounted above the window.

Does anyone have insight into this? I want to grind the additional lip off to allow the drip lip seal to be more effective.

Let me know what you think and if you have any pictures of that same thing but in good condition, please post.

thanks in advance.
