New to fibreglass RVing

Hi I'm Steve and I bought 79 17' Boler yesterday first travel trailer for our family and we are quite excited about it. I noticed today though that the front window is leaking so I'm wondering if maybe I should pull all the windows and reseal them. Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks Steve.Click image for larger version

If you do choose to reseat the windows, butyl tape is the preferred method. Available at any RV shop; it doesn't harden. Don't overcoat the joints with silicone or caulk as it will separate enough to leak as the fiberglass expands and contracts with heat/sunshine.

He should use Butyl tape and after the window is clamped into place run a bead of pro-flex around the frame and the fiberglass. Do not use silicone on fiberglass.

Is there anything I should be aware of before I pull the windows out?
