1997 Monaco Executive Windshield Gasket


Recommended Posts

I am looking for a windshield gasket for my 97 Monaco Executive. My windshield needs to be reset.  The old gasket is hard from sun exposure.  I had to tape the seams of the windshield just to drive it home from Colorado to Wisconsin because the wind noise was awful.  Anyhow, after a lot of calling around I found a shop who can do the work but they won't guarantee the work because of the age of the motor-home.  Anyhow, I am looking for the proper gasket and having trouble.  The parts PDF on this site doesn't seem to have the gasket listed, unless I am missing it.  Does anyone know what gasket is used?  Also, does anyone have any good advice on what should be done and what shouldn't, such as:  using sealant or not?  Thanks

When CoachGlass replaced my windshield, they sent me Bostick 70-08A only to glue gasket to body. My gasket is still good and is self-locking, no adhesive between it and the glass to keep if floating in the groove. I would expect CoachGlass to know or have what gasket you need.

That's interesting. My 05 Ambassador (2 piece) windshield didn't have any "polyurethane" on it from the factory. I went through about 3 replacements without polyurethane. They always asked me if I wanted it. I said no, it came from the factory without it. I was always having problems with the upper right corner not staying in the gasket. I was having the windshield reset in the Goshen area by a person who glued the windshields in the gasket at the factory. I told him no glue, it never had glue. His reply was my motorhome was probably moved to the windshield installation bay on a Friday and when they returned on Monday, they probably pushed my MH to the next assembly assuming it was done on Friday. He said that has happened before. I now have the glue on the passenger side but not on the driver's side. "When" I have to replace the driver's side I will use da glue. I was told not to use the polyurethane with primer, prime the gasket first then use the pure urethane. That method has worked great for me.
