Need help finding replacement seals for windows for 77S13.
It looks as if we can salvage 3 of the 4 windows. They are old aluminum frames. They prop out with slotted props. The front and back windows have a center prop out, the side two prop at the side. There is no window over the stove.
The front window seems to be a bit bent, so I doubt we can salvage that one. The current window sizes from Scamp are not the same size, so the hunt for windows is a challenge. The "rubber" gasket/seals are hard as rocks. There are a couple of layers of caulking around the windows. As I am removing ALL the elephant skin and foam insulation I can now see daylight around the windows. Little doubt why it leaks.
We still do not have the kitchen/furnace/frige out. Next to come out is the closet.
This is a complete clean out. I am scraping away at the rotten old foam insulation.
We will also be replacing the tiny 8"X8" ceiling vent.
Thanks for any help and ideas.

Faith - Can you post pics? Your 77S13 windows sound far different than my 77S13 windows..

I have large plexiglass non-opening windows with a rubber sealing gasket front and rear, and the jalousied side windows, with aluminum frames, that justed needed butyl tape and re-riveting to seal.
