Help with Bigfoot rear window install

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me whether there is a top and bottom on the rear window of a 1981 Bigfoot? We took it out to reseal it and now I'm unsure which way up it goes. There is a "tempered safety glass" logo on the window, which seems like it should be the right way up (all the other ones are)... But then the joint in the frame would be at the top, which doesn't seem right as it's a definite weak spot for leaks.
Please help!Click image for larger version

Also, this is the only window which doesn't have a 'drain' cut into the bottom...

It might help to look at the inside flange and window and study the screw holes to get the window and flange properly oriented.

Thanks! I'm positive that the inside flange had the joint at the bottom, so I'll go with that. Which puts the logo upside down, but I'm more comfortable with the seam on the bottom.

There should be some evidence of where the screws threaded into the window frame and the holes in the flange should match up with the window.

Thanks. The flange does match up to the window, but there is no evidence in/on the trailer at all. I could install them either way up just as easily.

My 17ft Bigfoot is a 1983 and rear window has frame joint on bottom.

I just resealed it with 3m 4200 and was very careful marking orientation when removing so I didn't mess up installing as the 4200 is a fairly strong adhesive.
