Hurricane Windshield

So I've been chasing a water leak in the front of the coach. Resealed the passenger window. Did the dicor on the roof. The leak wouldn't go away. Kept looking and found the leak was coming from the windshield. The water was running down the outside of the windshield and pooling up along the bottom of the glass. The rubber seal that goes around the edge of the glass had no drain at the bottom. I took out the rubber trim and cut a chunk out of the gasket and a lot of water drained out. Hope it fixes the leak.

I noticed the same collection of water in the lower windshield seal on our Hurricane but no leaks inside. Where are you seeing the water?

I think I would have put a tiny bead of clear silicone caulking At the juncture of the windshield and the rubber seal. It would keep the water from pooling...
But I hope that your solution works!

Thatís what I thought too. Keep the water out in the first place. A tube of windshield sealer from Auto Zone is like watery silicone. It flows where the water goes before setting up and is invisible in use. Itís a terrific product.
