LiteHouse side windows.

I was working inside the trailer during a rainstorm tonight and realized that there was a series of drips coming from the bottom of the window gasket on the starboard side. Here's a photo of the leak.

I can't find a manufacture mark on the window. Do they look familiar to anyone?

Hehr. You can probably fix the leak by pulling the window, cleaning up anything clinging to the aluminum frame and around the fiberglass opening and apply butyl to the frame and reapplying the window to the body. Cinch the inner "clamp ring" around the interior of the trailer and removing the squished out butyl from the exterior of the trailer... with a plastic knife. This is a standard maintenance issue with molded fiberglass trailers. YMMV

They look like Hehr windows. Need to get it sealed or clean out your window drains. The glassed bottom in the LH holds the water and it will rot the floor.

Fixing some floor rot is the next big project.

Dave, before you pull the window, check the weep holes on the outside... they need to be clear for water to drain and not migrate back inside the trailer. Typically the weep holes are covered with plastic covers. Take a piece of weed wacker line and run it through the holes to clear. Then, I check for leakage with a water hose.

Good luck!
