Back emergency window. Falling apart

The outside trim around our emergency windo was cut about 4 inches too short and we have to keep putting it back in. Any suggestions

Clean it put some caulking behind it and push it back in.

GE 100% silicone found to be the best.

Is it the rubber gasket trim (frame) or glass? Pictures please and type of rig. I don't know if you are still under warranty or not. Does it leak? if so and no warranty I would try my insurance company and see if they would replace if it. They don't want water in your rig either. Just a thought.

It is the rubber gasket trim. It’s the fr3 2015 30 ds. It is out of warranty. And this would not be covered by extended warranty. And there is no water leaking in... yet.. the gasket is too small! Like how many of these did they make wouldn’t the gaskets be all the same size for that window? So fed up with this rig

I don't understand. You have had this FR3 since 2015 and you're saying it has had a short gasket for over 3 years? More info needed to figure this one out.

I found this on another RV site by CampDaven. Maybe you can try it.

They dry out and shrink. I remove them and apply 303, then caress them into a longer length. They will usually revert to near their original length and are easily pressed back in. I clean the track before reinstallation.
Best wishes!

Order a new gasket and have it installed or install it yourself, if you have the skills.
