Windshield seal/molding 1990 Winnebago

Ok I have several questions about my windshield molding/ seal on my 1990 Winnebago Chiefton. What I have discovered is the black seal around the windshield is deteriorating. The PO had chaulked it in several areas.
My 1st question is does anyone have a part number for this?
My second question is , could this be a DIY repair ?
3rd question is how difficult?
There aren't ant leaks yet but I know they will come. Thanks for the advice. Jim

You may have a whole lot more under the seal that needs repairing. Winnies have a history of rusted out Winshield frames!

Yes they do.
May have to pull windshields and inspect frame work.
if any cancer is found on frame work repair, prime and reinstall windshields w/ new gaskets.

Go to an automotive glass repair shop and see what they can do to get a new windshield rubber surround and any other small hardware needed. It's always best to have more than one person to help. Once the old rubber seal is removed, you'll then know if there's any channel damage from over the years of rust. Definitely blow out and clean any debris in there and if you find any surface rust that's not bad, you can get a can(or two) of "rust be gone" or anything similar that stops(mild/surface) rust and turns it into a paintable primer.
