2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 5/27/22 - Window Bracket Install Failure and Weatherstrip

Post by kurtfranz »

Purchased and installed new weatherstripping and attempted to use 3M Weatherstrip Tape (Not VHB Rated) to attach the side brackets on the passenger side window. This proved to be a failure but I figured I would try it since I had the tape on hand. At first it seemed to hold, but once the pressure was applied to tighten the window down the tape gave way.

Here is what it looked like initially when I thought it would work - looked good:

This is the Weatherstrip I purchased at Lowe's:

Next attempt will be using 3M VHB Tape made for glass to metal adhesion.
