How do properly seal a windown

We are rebuilding the bathroom and today we installed one sheet of paneling on the exterior wall with a small bathroom window. We removed the interior trim and while trying to measure for the window cutout the window just fell out in my hands.

I noticed that the window has a rubber seal build into it, Is that enough or should we run a bead of good caulking as well. Do not want any more leaks anywhere with this project.

Use putty tape. It is available at all rv stores and is much better than caulk

Putty tape, holy crap, 73 years on this earth and this is the first I ever heard of that stuff, I have done a heap of stuff over the years that I could have used that stuff on.

Just saw it in a K & K RV supply catalog in Miami, it comes in three width's and two thicknesses, who woulda known there was such a thing. I have two other windows that are leaking and they were patched with caulking around the outside and it is ugly.

Goona rub out and get me a roll of that stuff tomorrow
