We just bought a 1981 yellowstone travel trailer that has been sitting for 10 years. It had a leak by the front window this past spring and the front inside paneling needs to be replaced. Plus we need to reseal around the windows and the roof. What type of sealant should we use? Do we have to remove the windows or just seal around the seams? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

phover2337 welcome to irv2
If the water is coming thru the metal seam of window I would remove it and place new ribbon flat caulk around the window frame that will squeeze to wall surface and remount it. Than seal along top of window metal frame with a sealent. You should check all windows and seal also just alone top if they seem tight and firm the wall outside. Most good RV supply will have what you need and don't be afraid to ask they will try to sell more than you might need.
Have fun and don't overlook anything your roof included.
