Leaking Window

On our 2015 Thor Vegas 24.1 the rear passenger side window leaks only during a hard downpour. It only leaks at bottom of window. It looks like the water is running off roof behind the rolled up canopy then down window. In looking at paper work from previous owner that window was replaced. Canít get into service until 1st week of June. Thatís crazy in itself. We do have the extended premium warranty on this but they canít tell me if itís covered until it is assessed. Thank you in advanced for any suggestions that we can do to hold us over until we get it in.

Hi, cheap first thing to try is clean out the weep holes along the outside bottom of the window(s) (if one window is plugged more are likely dirty too, so do them all when you can). Use a fine gauge thin metal wire and clean the tracks of all debris etc also. Attaching a Youtube video of someone doing this as an example. The next alternative is to recaulk where the window moulding trim meets the coach wall along the top and down the sides to make sure water does not enter from that region either.

Thanks. I did see this. Will be trying it as soon as our rain stops here in Illinois. And then will be checking the caulking also.

Well rain has finally stopped and the window leaked pretty bad. Itís above the passenger side of king bed. I donít find drain holes in it. There isnít trim around window like in video. Also the caulking is different than Iíve seen in past. Itís black rubbery caulking.

Weíve taken boards under bed out to dry. We will caulk the window to see that helps but does anyone have any other suggestions. Thanks for any help. Closest repair shop is 2 hours away and canít get in for a month. Then usually when they do get it they have it for 2 or 3 weeks. Never an easy process. So trying to learn and do as much as we can.
I tried to figure how to attach a picture of window but couldnít figure it out.
