Does anybody know a good source of information for resealing the front window? It has a very minor leak that I want to fix. Thanks.

Use Dicor sealant, especially made for RVs; you can purchase at most RV dealers, HEMI

Resealing the windows can be a fairly simple DIY project but...
to get the job done properly it is best to remove the window, frame and all from the camper to reseal. On my old Minicruiser, the front window (Hehr) glass to frame seal was also bad so I had to remove the spline, clean everything up and resealed with 3M auto body sealer (the black stuff). Purchase new spline from Allrite.
The frames were sealed to the body with caulking tape but yours could be foam tape or something else.
It was pretty easy on that camper to pull out all the windows.
If Elkhorn is still around, a quick call to them might reveal any quirks but it should be straightforward.

Hemi, Steve B,

thanks, sounds like I can do it myself. The leak is very small but I still want to fix it.
