Rear Door Window Slippage

After a recent trip we noticed the glass pane in the rear door of our 2015 Jayco WhiteHawk had slipped out of position...This is the third time in 6 months. We've loosened the screws in the frame and repositioned it twice now. Anyone else having this issue and found a solution? The frame appears otherwise intact and seems to tighten down but apparently not enough.

I'd run a bead of clear silicone around the frame on the inside.

The pins molded to the bottom of the frames are broken allowing the window to fall.
If you remove the inside frame (support the outside frame and glass) you should be able to insert a few spaces under the glass to keep propped up.
Looks as though it could use some caulking as well.

Or did someone install it upside down?

There is no up or down to the frames. If I recall there are 2 pins top and bottom and 2 pins on either side on both the inside and outside frames.

This would work, did it where it should be, tape it on outside and silicone the inside. I’ve actually done this on an older trailer.
