Weep holes on are on the outside of the window frame. On older trailers, they may even have a plastic cover over the top (open at the bottom). There should be slots on the inside of the window frame that allows condensation on the inside to drain to the outside. Those slots are narrow and about 3/8" long (or less).


I like weed wacker plastic to clear the weep holes in my trailers. Nothing to scratch the surface but ridged enough to do the trick. YMMV

Fixed similar leaking window on scamp by removing rubber vinyl gasket on outside of window. This removed easily and could clean entire area around window as it filled up with tree pollen road dust and even some small ants. Once cleaned just replaced same gasket and no more leaks. Also use weed wacker string to occasionally clean weep holes from outside.
