Trailer: Lil Bigfoot 13 ft 1989
Posts: 4
I am fixing up a Lil Bigfoot 13Ft 1989. All the windows have been removed, cleaned, and replaced with butyl tape and silcone seal at the seal between frame and fiberglass. This worked great, a very good seal.
Unfortunately, there is a leak between the rubber gasket/frame and the plastic polycarbonate sheet on the front window.
There is a sealant used between the plastic and the frame/rubber gasket.
Does anyone know or have a suggestion on what to use?

I have sealed them up at the shop where I work and if you have 3 mil (1/8) polycarbonate windows do not use silicone....
Use a butyl or polyurethane based selant like Dymonic. Run a small bead between the polycarbonate and the frame and them
push in the rubber glazing gasket to hold everything in place.
