Window removal

I have a 2015 Flagstaff 8528IKWS. Well I have a roof leak at the right rear corner. That I can fix easily. More difficult is repairing the delamination. I have repaired delams before so that doesn't worry me. My question to the group is has anyone ever removed a window from one of these units? That is clearly the easiest way to make the repair. Thanks in advance.

Herr windows in my 2006 Sunseeker 2860ds can be removed. It depends on your window manufacturer if and how it can be done.

The Herr manual is available online and is pretty detailed. I printed it out for future reference just in case.

I have some minor delamination from a pesky sidewall leak due to gutter screws loosening and water ran down the inside and outside of my overhead cab sidewalls, hit the window frame and gave me the delamination.

Since the root cause was identified and fixed 3 years ago the delamination has stabilized and I probably wont ever try to fix it it is so minor.

I've removed different brands over the years. Most are held in by sandwiching the sidewall between the inner and outer frames, remove all the screws around the inside and the inner/outer come apart. Outer will be hard to remove due to butyl tape and sealer.
