Default Roadtrek window gaskets

Anybody know if the gaskets for the three small windows above the windshield on the 1997 RT 190 Popular are available?

I used Captain Tolley's to seal the infamous rear window gasket leak on our y2k 200V.

do understand that it could take more than a single application to totally seal things. Once sealed I never had to revisit up until we sold it, about 5-6 years parked in FLA sun when not on the road.

We own a 1997 Roadtrek 170.

One of our opera windoews leaked.

Be aware that the "outside" gasket does not prevent window leaks. Its function is simply to hold the glass in plave against the frame.

The glass is sealed against the frame with silicon or othe sutable material an d then the gasket is pressed into the frame to hold the glass in place.

We removed the screws from inside on the frame circumferences then carefuly removed the outside gasket, then the window from the frame.
The dried up sealer was scraped from the glass and interior frame then a fresh bead of sealer applied and everything put back in place.

Two years and many rain storms later, tight as a drum.

Ditto to what Mike Bee wrote. Easy peasy to fix. I forgot what silicone sealant I used but no more leaks. Yes my outside gaskets are out of sorts but I just clean them and put them back as they try to pull out some and distort. Don't worry about the gaps. To fix a leak, unscrew from the inside, clean, silicone up and reinstall. 02D190P
All the best and safe travels in 2024.
I can't wait to get on the road again.

I have a Chevy PleasureWay with two "Eyebrow windows" (That's what PW calls them) I tried the Captain stuff, but had to keep applying it, so I followed PW's instructions, and as others have mentioned, removed the gasket (No need to remove the window, at least on the PWs) cleaned everything up, applied a windshield glass urethane, and put the gaskets back in. Mine were in very good shape. (15 years old) The gasket is to hold the glass in, not for leaks, so I would be more concerned with a good bead of window urethane, than finding new gaskets.

Great info, thanks. Looks like my first project this season will be to pull those frames from the inside.
