Entry door replacement window

I'm remounting the entry door window in my 2003 Sandpiper travel trailer. What kind of caulk or sealant does anyone recommend. The glass is sandwiched between an inner and outer frame and was sealed to the outer frame when I removed it. The sealant seemed to be a bit more tacky than regular window caulk. I have found a product called Proflex RV Flexible Sealant online. Has anyone had any experience with this or any other product successfully.

Butyl tape is rolled with paper separator between the rolls. Available at RV parts and sellers stores/ Camping World. Sticky and gooey but stays soft over time. Can buy in different widths or buy 1" and cut to suit.

Thanks, VinceU. I do have the butyl tape that you refer to and I have used that for the regular windows. However the product that was used originally on the entry door window was a clear and more like a silicone.

Butyl tape is----------------

Butyl tape is what I used when I replaced my entry door windows. I used a gray tempered glass with a GILA window film on the inside. I USED THE TITANIUM film. You can see out but no one can see in.

Use noting but butyl tape………. If you need to replace it again due to brakeage, you will never get the frame apart if you use caulk……….
