Prepping for the Spring trip to the Smokies, my wife noticed that there was a small gap between the door window frame and the top edge of the glass on the Little Joe
. With the door open, holding the glass with the flat of my hands the glass can be moved around. This is a standard RV door.
The glass is held in place by the inner and outer frame which are screwed together. It appears the glass was sealed to the outside frame by some sort of adhesive. The glass rests on 2 plastic tabs which are part of the outer frame. Evidently the original adhesive dried out, letting the glass float. In travel, bumps and shocks have broken the bottom support tabs. I can replace these with aluminum tabs JBed to the frame. Or, I may cut a piece of wood to fit between the glass and the frame for a more solid fit.
Question: Will 100% clear silicone adhesive be sufficient to hold and seal the glass?
I would think silicone would be non-hardening, allowing the window to float somewhat with expansion, while maintaining a water tight seal.
Thanks for your help.
