Rubber gasket pulling away from windshield

2005 fleetwood expedition 38n

The rubber gasket that surrounds the windshield two piece windshield is pulled away from the windshield in the corner. . I think I figured out why.... I have magna shades and as I put the shade up i push up on the edge of the shade with the pole to get them up and in so doing I pushed the rubber seal out of that channel it sets in. My bad... I asked the folks that do my work on my RV to see what they could do. I know they put silicone sealant on it. It does keep the windshield from leaking but did not hold the seal back in its place. My question is what do I do about this. It does not look very good with that about 8 inches or so of rubber seal sticking away from the windshield...the piece that is pulled away in in the passengers side top corner of the windshield. You cant see it when inside of the RV... I would appreciate any experience or inputs....tks GlenB

I have a similar situation on my MH execpt it has to do with the side glass. I called the factory which forwarded me to the window MFG. Talking to them they said that the rubber molding sounded like it shrunk and for me to send them a picture of it so they could determine the exact window type. They would then send me that molding to replace. Maybe your's is similar to that and easy to fix. Good luck

Glen B,

This is what I used on my molding around the windshield.

It is a little messy to work with, so keep some Mineral Spirits and rags readily accessible.

In some places you may have to cross tape with area with 3M blue painters tape until the adhesive cures.

It is readily available at Advance Auto Parts and other auto parts stores.

Hope this helps.Click image for larger version

I would take it to a glass shop that does RV windshields. They can reseat gasket rather than filling with sealant where loose.

If I were replacing a 2005 windshield gasket, I wouldn't reseat it, but replace the entire thing.

The 3M weatherstrip and gasket adhesive works very well for attaching small portions of the original molding without the expense of replacing the entire gasket unless deemed necessary.

I replaced the rubber around the windshield this winter. I measured it and ordered new material from the MFG it was under 2.00 a foot and now it looks and adheres well.
