I got the windows in just before the cold weather settled in. Not caulked yet, and the camper is in a pole barn, so no worry about leaks. I'm thinking of getting hold of the flocked window gaskets so I can rebuild the back slider window.

The only caulking required would be to seal up those two small holes at the top. If rebuilding your rear window doesn't work out, remember that a Scamp rear window will fit by widening the opening in the trailer by about 1/2" on each side. Window is about $150, plus shipping.

Yep, Bob, that's the calking that I'm referring to.

Pam; now that you have done your window installation, do you have any advice or suggestions to make it easier for those who have yet to do it. Another idea for sealing those small holes in the window frame is just a small dab of the butyl putty pushed into them. I'd send you some, but can't until I get back home in March.

Mine still leaked until I caulked the seam between the bottom of the window frame and the weather strip. Water collects in this seam and if there is any gap anywhere, it finds its way inside. So, if they leak, check there first.

Tom; didn't you use the 1488 weatherstrip that has the wider gap than original? Could that contribute to leakage. I've found that water will wick in the smallest unexpected places. I had a leak into the right front storage compartment that turned out to be from a stone chip about 3 inches up from the bottom of the body. It was real small, but rain running down the side would get in there and puddle inside. I still have an occasional leak around the front window that I just can't see where it originates.

Yea, good point Bob. But if it leaks, I'd still look at this juncture as it holds water that wants to flow downhill.

Wow, that's amazing how a stone ship can leak so much. Another argument for drainage in the bottom.

Best advise:
1. One of the people installing the window should have strong man hands... I don't know if I could have done it on my own. My hubby did the really hard work of fussing and fighting and easing the gasket around the window from inside, while I worked on tucking and adjusting from the outside.
2. We used really sturdy butter knives as our 'tool of choice' with the assist of the tools that I borrowed from Bob.
3. We kept the gasket warm until we installed it, and then put a heater in the camper so that it would stay warm. If we had needed it, we'd have also set up a small heater outside blowing on the window frame to keep the rubber gasket soft and pliable.
4. Once the windows were in the gasket, I used a brush to apply the super soapy water inside the groove where we were sliding in the lockstrip. Using a brush kept the mess to a minimum. I didn't need to slop it all over, just brush it into the groove.
5. READ all of Bob's instructions, they are PRICELESS! Thanks so much, Bob!
