Carol the holes you mention drilling...this would be in lower frame of the window itself correct? As in the window that cranks out?
I sadly do not have the trailer any longer to take a photo for you but I actually drilled through the lower frame that was attached to the trailer.

I know another party (Ron in BC) did the same and I found their post on it.

Scamp Front Bathroom Mod

In his post he has two photos - the lower photo is of the frame off the trailer side and he has placed a punch tool in the hole he drilled to show were he did it. That is how/where I did it as well. The photo refreshed my memory that I actually did need to go through 2 pieces of metal on the lower track to get the correct drainage.

Looking at your window Wendy its not clear to me if the frame on your trailer is the same as the one Ron and myself had though. Would think it would be somewhat similar though. As a note Ron's Scamp was a much newer model than mine was as well.

But as Donna says if drilling a hole is a concern than a stick on gutter above the window is a simpler fix.

But I would still pull the window out and reseal it to the trailer. As mentioned earlier when I pulled the one out of mine it was clear the factory had used very little between the frame and the window and I could see where some water had gotten between the trailers outside wall and the inside shower wall finish in the trailer. Not enough to damage the floor in the bathroom but had I left it it would have with time.

Gotcha Carol. I have to find a thread now for removing that window as this will be my maiden voyage for taking a window out. 😮

Pretty easy to do - from inside remove the screws holding the windows inside retaining frame in place and it will pop out. But I would make sure you have someone standing on the outside of the trailer to stop the window from simply falling out onto the ground if it has no sealant between the outside frame and the trailer to hold it in place with the retaining frame off.

As a wrap up I never heard from the lady at Hehr. At least not as of this date. So I went ahead and popped the window out and took quite a bit of time getting silicone off trailer. In the end used brake kleen and a pastic putty knife.

While window was out my friend drilled two, 1/8 inch holes where Carol suggested. We took out the factory foam type weatherstripping and laid in butyl tape. 2 layers thick all around and 1 more layer at the top of the window to try and get window to sit in hole a bit straighter and compensate for trailer curvature.

Cleaned up all around and washed the scamp. What a joy to wAtch that water run out my new weep holes and tracks are dry as a bone. Yee hah! I'll drink to that!

Thank you for all of your helpful suggextions6 photos and info. We be golden now.
