Smile Leak in upper class B window

The upper left window in my 2001 Leisure Travel is leaking, badly. Previous van, a Great West, also did. Repairs to both have not lasted. Having read several items on repair over the years, I am still wondering what are the repair methods that are known to work. Local RV shops don't want to do it, because it is so hard to do it right. I did have the Great West window 'repaired' at a glass shop. That did not last either. MY longest lasting solution( but not permanent) was a lot of sealant, ugly look. I have recently read not to use silicone, but poly???? Any comments would be appreciated.

Default Captain Tolley sealant

I will check out the availability of this product here in western Canada. I will be in California in a couple of weeks, so may find it easier to get there. It is worth a try. If water can get in then this product makes sense. Thanks for the info.

Check out the Marine Stores, it is a big seller with the boating folks, it is really a good product. Ron

My Roadtrek's upper windows leaked. I brought them to the local Portland Glass (Automotive Windows, etc.).

They took them out, cleaned them up and put them back in with lots of squishy, ugly black sealant. So far they don't leak. Honestly, I'd prefer no upper windows to the chance of leaks.
