The later model Scamps have the sliding radius windows. Scamp installed these with a foam seal between the window frame and the fiberglas shell. The windows need to be taken out and re bedded with butyl putty tape. While the windows are out you need to make sure the drains in the windows are clear so water running down the outside doesnt fill the frame with water and overflow on the inside. Same with the roof vents and escape hatch. It's a bit of work but not hard to do. Instead of fixing these issues properly everyone wants to go for the silicone gun and that just delays the problem and complicates the repair.

Thank you and more questions from Bill

Thanks everyone. I have ordered snap covers and started watching videos on repairs I know I have to do. Will check back window for leaks. What is the technique for removing gray carpet and then reattaching? Right now some of the ceiling carpet is sagging and I would definitely like to fix. Shell is in pretty good shape but stained pretty bad, especially on top. I have watched the video advocating scrubbing with Bar Keepers Friend and then waxing with ZEP Wet Look Floor Wax. I would like some opinions. Thanks in advance.
