That is the correct way to install - glue the gasket to frame and do not glue gasket to glass. This allows for some movement between the glass and frame for chassis flexing.
I wonder if the windshields we buy are all the same dimensions (what is the quality control). If the replacement windshield was 3/8" smaller in height or width, that could cause a big problem.
Do all the glass manufacturers adhere to strict tolerances (SAE or such)? When I was replacing my windshield and posted some questions, someone said there are two RV windshield manufactures and one was better than the other (I don't recall the names now). Maybe buying glass is like buying auto parts where some replacement parts/brands are just junk.
