Hello! I posted this in a similar window replacement thread, but thought I'd give it a shot on its own with the exact model in the heading:
I wanted to confirm before I had this repair done: I have a '69 Shasta 1400 and the rear window has a leak in the lower right corner. I ended up having to put a new wall in because it was warped from water damage (frame still in OK shape). I notice that while the window as a whole is tightly affixed to the body of the camper (I resealed it with butyl tape a few years back), water is pooling up in that lower corner where the glass meets the frame. I push on it and water oozes out. After a while exposed, it also started getting really green there. Stuff is growing. So, I'm pretty sure this is the problem area: the seal of the glass within the window frame itself. I called an RV place and they said there is NO way to take that glass out. I read elsewhere and think differently. Can someone please confirm that a glass specialist can take out the glass and reseal within the window frame? Sorry for the repeat, just want some confirmation. Or is there a way to do it DIY? Working under a tight deadline. THANKS!
Also! I have one broken jalousie window and it appears that there are two screws coming up through the bottom section of the frame that can come out to release the glass. However, the screws are so rusted that they won't budge. I have seen glass replacement videos and posts for those without the aluminum frame encasing the entirety of the glass (just the sides), but not with the 1400 window that has the aluminum frame all around the glass. Can anyone confirm the ease of or my approach to releasing the frame and glass by removing that bottom section? Thank you!
