Leaking Windows

2017 Thor Axis leaking driver and passenger side Windows. 1 repair was to the wall boards below window for surface irregularities. In shop 1 mo, They didn't say anything about Windows. 2nd trip it happened again bubbling on surface. This time they found the leak replaced windows, ripped out side and floor boards full of mold. In the shop over 4 MOS waiting on parts. Here we go again with leaking Windows. I love my Axis but 3rd time same issue I'm thinking of lemon law. I've only been able to use it twice in the last year. Anyone else have leaks?

Not sure how much you feel like reading tonight? In SEARCH type in "Window Leak".

Search for user "axis earl". His seems to be the classic front cap joint/seal problem. Thor, and maybe all coach builders, have a terrible time securing the front fiberglass "cap" to the roof and sidewalls. The front and back are molded fiberglass. The sides and roof are made with aluminium "studs" covered with thin plywood and a skin, fiberglass for the sides and a rubber sheet for the roof. They get screwed together with a caulking sealant to keep it weather tight. In theory. And the sealant is excluded in the warranty. The workers putting together are paid piece work and the buyer is the Quality Control inspector.

Lets see:

There is this thread:
Delamination?... and... uh... pimples
and this one (linked in the above thread):
Anyone know what causes this?
This one is a fun one because there are pics of the front end disassembled:
Axis/Vegas Window Leak (maybe?)
