Hi Jack, that's a good idea. I think I had water coming in that way too. At first, I thought it was condensation. The leak I'm sure of now is coming from the middle of the window and is trickling down between the outer shell and interior wall. I'm pretty sure the door window has an internal leak too because when the door is opened when the trailer is tilted forward, water drips from a hole in the bottom of the door. If Al and Donna have the felt and glass seal, I'm hoping that will seal things. Hate to do it all and then still have a leak.

Steven,
I haven't solved anything yet either I don't think its possible to find that outer seal that the glass slides into. I have spent bookoo hours researching it on the net . I think a person is going to have to change not only that seal but also the felt track that the glass slides in to cure the problem completely. And as one thread suggested make sure the drain holes are open.

Dennis,

I just found out the felt track doesn't solve the problem. Windows open smoothly, but I still get the same leaks. I found an exact match for the felt track: CRL flex glass channel, #21116181951C, (800) 421-6144. A part of a role is available from - RV Doctor George in Sacramento, CA (916) 927-7837. My next step is to put plastic trays under windows as suggested by Jack Maloney.
