You can order the rubber gasket (comes in 100 foot length). It has a 1/8 inch slot and a slightly larger slot. The first time I had to buy a special tool to insert the rubber strip that makes the seal. They have changed the way the seal is done now and can be done with a flat blade screwdriver. It is difficult to get around the sharp corners, but not impossible. Usually takes someone inside to hold the rubber gasket while the person outside forces the seal in place.I also use a silicone caulk that will not deteriorate the rubber.Just remove the old windows and use them as the template to cut a new window from high grade (non-cloudy) plastic.If you need more info, I might be able to locate the source of the rubber gasket. There was NO aluminum on my windows nor any plastic. This must be a later addition or something that was used to replace the original. The window are NOT a standard size for any normal replacement. YOu will have to build your own or make a frame to hold a standard size. Resizing the hole was not an option for me.Be sure to use a plastic that will stand up to the sun and weather. I had to shop around for the right material and paid a pretty high price for it. But it is better in the long run as regular replacement is a royal pain.
The windows (perhaps deadlight is the proper term) on my T24 leak. I can see stains running down the cabin wall from the windows. Also, the windows are terribly cloudy, so I'm considering replacing them. Does anyone know how the windows are installed?
There seems to be some sort of an aluminum frame with a black rubber gasket in the middle of it, and there is a plastic frame inside the cabin. Outside, it looks like quite a bit of caulking was added over the years to the inner black gasket which appears to have cracked and shrank with age.
If I dig out the old caulk and remove the black gasket, does the window come out? Can I replace the black gasket, and where would I find the right stuff?
Any help much appreciated!
