Butyl tape vs Gasket for window
Help!!! In process of refrigerator switch out. Window over dining table is out on our 2003 Monaco dynasty. Looks like originally they used a gasket and maybe black silicone to seal window. (assuming it is silicone, as been fun getting it off around window on coach, as others have noted).
Is it better to go buy a new rubber gasket and use silicone or some other beading material (since silicone appears to be a bad word) and what should that material be when we reseal window OR
Should we do rubber gasket (RV world sells it) and butyl tape together OR
Just butyl tape, OR
butyl tape and a beading material, and do we go all the way around with beading material or just across top and part way down sides.
ALSO: the "foam" insulation between the walls appears to have been sprayed with some sort of black material that I ASSUME was a water repellant material and some "chipped" when getting window out. Anyone know what that is??
Window is out, rain will be coming this weekend, so don't have a lot of time for decisions :(. Thanks
