Window sealant turning to goo


Recommended Posts

Hi All


I've moved my LazyDaze with the back facing south and I've just noticed that the sealant around the window is turning to goo - kind of soft and sticky. The window doesn't leak, although I've also found a few spots of mold. It's been warm and sunny here for the time of year, but only in the 60's. For most of the summer I rigged a tarp to shade the window from the full west sun.


Does this mean that the sealant is failing or does this just happen sometimes?


Many thanks...

That sealant is most likely butyl putty tape. It is supposed to remain soft and pliable. Take a plastic putty knife and scrape the excess off and then (if you want) apply some good caulking along the edge.
