Sealant at windows

My Wildwood is about 18 months old and when I was getting it ready for a trip a couple of weeks ago, I noticed the window sealant "oozing" out at a couple of windows mainly at the corners.

This is a little strange as it occured during the winter.

Anyone else experience this?

You are right. That is bizarre in winter.

We have a 2009 Wildwood and have not seen anything like that. I've touched up most of the windows; don't know if that made a difference...

Mine did it. I think they must have used Dicor or some other self leveling material instead of a caulk.

The caulking around my windows oozed out and ran down onto the siding.

Under the window frame should be Butyl tape and around the outside edge use Pro Flex.

X2. The Pro Flex RV has excellent adhesion to fiberglass and metal.

Mine looks just like it, I think every window. Its unsightly and hard to clean up but so far none of the windows are leaking. I believe the wrong product was used to seal too
Good luck
John
