Window seal solution?

The foam seal around several windows has come loose and is pulling from the corners. Is there a special process to fix this? I was going to use an adhesive to put it back in its original position but asking for other experiences.

Is this a clamp ring or flush window? Different process for each.
Clamp ring windows are easy.

Mine looks exactly like the photo posted by the OP. It is doing it only on the bottom two corner of my front passenger window and my entry door window.

I'm wondering if putting a little clear silicone sealant on the sides of the material that pulled out and then securing it back down until it dries would do the trick.

I had the same problem with the window gaskets as shown in the photo. At the end of my warranty period when I went to Nappanee for repairs, Newmar fixed them by gluing them in place. I did not see the exact procedure.

We had the same issue which Newmar corrected while at the factory service center. The tech indicated they would just glue them in place. Don't know what they used. No further issues in the year since.

I might attempt to apply a light coat of clear good quality silicone sealant to each side of them and then secure them back down until they dry. A good silicone sealant is generally a good adhesive also. I guess it that doesn't hold I could try Gorilla glue or something similar.

Get some 3M Black Super Weatherstrip and Gasket Adhesive from just about any auto parts store and glue the seal back in place.

I used Permatex clear silicone Sealer/Adhesive. (Not just silicone sealer) It will say "sealer/adhesive" on the tube.

Comes in a large tube like toothpaste. I use that stuff for all kinds of stuff....INCLUDING mounting some pictures to the wall without drilling holes. I just use some blue painters tape to tape things in place and let that stuff cure for 24 hours....
