Windshield loose??

I noticed a few drops of rain on my dash this morning after a rain shower, as I was driving it to put it in the shed I was watching the windshield where the two meet and they both move when the MH goes over a hump or into a dip... when the frame is twisting... is this normal or do I need a new seal kit? thanks!!

I had the few drops of rain leaking onto the dash a few years ago. In my case, it was not coming from the windshield. It was coming from the clearance lights above the windshield. I finally solved it by caulking the lights with clear silicone. That solved that. I realized that it would be a pain when I had to replace a clearance light bulb, but that hasn't happened yet.

The windshield shifting. I also had that. There are different approaches to this. I chose to try a cost effective (cheap) approach that I could try myself. I used 'The Right Stuff' by Permatex or Loctite. It is black. It is marketed as a gasket replacement for engines. It is not silicone. It sticks, it really sticks! I caulked the windshield to the rubber gasket. That solved that. Our windshield has not shifted in the rubber gasket for the last three or four years.
