We purchased a 2008 Monaco...
We purchased a 2008 Monaco Camelot 42 PDQ last summer. The windshield was replaced before we took ownership. This year there have been gaps opening up along the top right side, leaking in wind and rain. I have sealed it with fiberglass and black silicone caulking. Unfortunately, a new opening has appeared down the upper right corner where the windshield has pulled away from the rubber gasket. We are preparing to leave Massachusetts for Florida next month and need a temporary solution until we can get a more permanent fix (halo kit?). We are a long way from Oregon!

Hi my name is Robert.....
The only way to fix this properly is to take the glass out and see if shims are needed for a proper fit. This can be a big job on a one piece windshield, the opening has to be supported when it is pulled.... SO you are limited, the best temporary solution would be to seal again let it dry, clean the area really good and then add some duct tape to the areas that had the gaps... As silly as it sounds I have seen many owners use the duct tape to cover voids and it helps allot... IF I recall there was an issue on this model with the windshields and I think Monaco did have a kit, I would contact them to see if they still have that halo kit. Hope this helps some, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
