Window remove

I would like to put a different couch in my 29 foot jayco Jay Feather. But if won't fit through the door. Thinking about removing the large window to pass the couch, but wondering what issues I might run in to in the way of removing, resealing, leaks, etc.

I know you wanna do it yourself but, I'd take it to a dealer and let them have the headache. Not to mention a warranty. Have them pull the window, you transfer furniture, have them reinstall the window.

Warranty is not an issue but the window is large and heavy I'm sure so, thanks. The only screws showing are the inside, so the window must be removed from the outside. There is an RV repair shop I found, so might let them give me a price.

You would still want a warranty for the work performed though. If YOU take it out and reinstall it and it leaks or you have a problem..it falls out and shatters, you have nothing to fall back on. A dealer would do the work with a warranty. Good luck and let us know how things work out!

Is the sofa an RV sofa? I think most of those can be disassembled, then reassembled when moved inside.

No. Not a RV sofa, but I will check to see iF it can be disassembled.

Removing the window might not be a bad thing. The screws inside connect the outer part (the main part of your window) to an inner ring. Remove the screws and the inner ring will probably lift off. Pushing carefully on the window edges from inside with one or two folks outside to catch will allow the window to come out.
I had to replace a broken window and saw what I interpreted as a small water leak around the window frame. The factory seal is a thin sponge gasket. I replaced it (thanks to some JOF advice) with butyl tape. Was in the progress of doing all the windows when we sold the TT.
