Entry window glass 1/4 seal tape?


Does anyone know where to find this stuff or what it is called. It is what the manufactures use when they install the entry door glass. I could use silicone, but I rather not.

I have no idea what's in your pic?? ....(except 2-1/2 inches of a steel tape measure).

I used black black butyl putty tape when I replaced my entry door glass:
Amazon.com: Colorimetrics Black Putty / Butyl Tape 1/8" x 1" x 30': Office Products
(My local RV dealer sells it by the foot).

The picture is of the plastic window frame with the seal tape installed. I can use 3/4" butyl tape and trim it to fit, but I would rather use what the the manufacturer used.

I just used the 3/4 wide window grey putty you can get at RV supply stores. My windows were already leaking when I replaced them with the tinted ones. They will not leak now. I only used it on the outside of the glass and outside frame. Let it push out the excess for a day then remove the excess.

What did you use to seal around the glass? I was hoping to find the stuff that the guy in the video is using. Clear View Entry Door Window Kit - YouTube

Why not simply contact "Ross RV Innovations",
(the manufacturer/distributor of the window kit)?

I would think they will sell you the tape seen in their video.

I tried that. He only sells the kits. I already used silicone on the glass and butyl tape on the frame. I don't like using silicone because it is messy and compresses too much.

I used the same grey 3/4 putty tape on the window and the frame. Outside only. Nothing on the inside as there is no water to leak to the inside from the inside. That was several months ago before my 2800 mile trip to Oregon, no issues.
