    Entrance Door window

    I have a 2018 GD Reflection 337RLS. The glass in the entrance door has slid down. I am guessing it needs to be resealed. What type of sealer can I get for the repair. There are screws on the inside trim so it should be easy to take apart and reseal.

    I would look at Lexel clear. Wonderful product.

    I've never heard of the glass sliding out of place. It's usually a good fit.
    The sealer you need is butyl tape. Before you take off the screws tape the exterior frame to the door, just the corners is fine. Apply the tape to the exterior side of the window. Now might be the time to put a fun stained glass into the window.

    Your glass is typically held in with ring of sticky tape, between the layers of the door and window glass/frame.

    You will understand more when you pull it apart. It doesn't really matter how you get it back in, just so it is water tight on the outside.

    Thanks everybody. My son uses that Lexel can get some from him. I do have some Butyl tape left over from a repair on my horse trailer so I am set when I pull it apart. Just wanted to make sure I had everything I need when I tackle the job.

    Or consider swapping for a thin shade?

    I agree with swapping for the Thin Shade since you are removing the glass anyway. Much nicer then the frosted glass. I used the Slim Shade which I believe is the same product. I think AP Products is owned by Lippert. Both windows look the same. I do know that the Slim Shade had the Lippert name on the glass in the lower right corner. Lots of product and installation review vidoes on youtube. Also reviews on this forum. Just search on slimshade.
