window seals

Hi. I have a 2000 Jayco Eagle. One of the black outside window seals has shrunk and not attached to the window frame. Where can I find replacement seals?

Welcome to the forum.

Have you tried contacting Jayco? Even if they don't have the part, they may be able to direct you to their window suppliers.

Good luck.

Window Seal

I don't believe Jayco sells or supplies repair parts directly to the owner. Go online and see what you can find. There are a lot of website that sell RV repair parts.

forget the foam seals.. use the putty... it lasts longer and is what a lot of dealerships use when they replace the foammies.

Use butyl tape. Most dealerships should probably carry it, or an autobody supply shop. It's used in windshields as well as on sailboats. Should never leak again and it's very easy to work with. Just pop the window out, clean off any old residue, put a strip of the tape along the perimeter of the window, and pop the old window back in. Screwing the new window in will compress the tape and possibly squeeze some out. clean it up and add some caulk if you really want to, but the butyl will do the job on it's own! Replaced all the window seals on our old trailer this way and never had them leak again.

That might be the putty Seann45 is referring too.

It's a rubber seal. Not tape or plastic. Fits in a track and presses against the window.

I have seen some guys replace their original seals with butyl tape and this is what I plan on doing eventually when my seals need attention. One thing I would like to add is that the clamping force of the screws alone isn't always enough to get a good compressed seal - I would use a clamp to compress, drive in your screws, and then remove the clamp.

I think what Yard is talking about is the rubber seal between the glass and aluminum frame. That's a tough one. I had a broken window and replaced it. I destroyed the old one trying to figure out if the glass could be removed. Maybe a pro knows how, I couldn't figure it out.
