Thatís a Furrion product and it has a foam seal behind it (much like the outdoor outlet foam seals that donít last as you mentioned earlier). I have access to a product that removes wet and cures silicone. DSR-5. I have not read up on it yet, so I donít know what impact it has on plastics, paint or fiberglass/filon or whatever the sides on my Passport are exactly. Itís not cheap, we pay about $70 a gallon for it. Iíll leave whatís intact now and repair what needs it later.
I have a 2019 Cougar 34TBS that was built November 2018 and has clear sealant everywhere. So it isnít just the smaller trailers using the clear sealant.
During PDI, noticed some sealant missing and the dealer had taken care of that, I had forgot to ask at that time wha three used and will find out in about a month when it goes in for some minor warranty items.
