Leaking windows

Did anyone mention to level your trailer when parked.
To much tilt will allow water to run under window and leak inside.
Ask any U-Haul owner.

At risk of sounding a bit like a novice, Iíll admit that itís not level. Looks like someone needs to hold my hand throughout this RV lifestyle, huh? Next year Iíll go out and level the trailer and hose it down. One more time: ďThanks!Ē

It's been a busy year so far with much eating and drinking to attend to. Thank goodness my resolution is to procrastinate more often. I'll play with the Scamp tomorrow.
Happy New Year to you.
Tom

That might be one new year's resolution that actually gets kept!

Happy New Year to you, too!

Well, it's tomorrow and Iím thankful for your suggestion to test for leaks with a hose. The exterior slots drained nicely with no water pooling up inside. I discovered a leak entering through a pop rivet that attaches the curtain rod. This may have been the culprit all along. Whoíd a thunk it? (Yea, I know. I said there were no sources for leakage above the window.)
Is it reasonable to squirt a temporary filling with latex caulk and try to find the little aspirin-sized covers to put on correctly in the Spring? (Iím not really procrastinating here. I suspect I could do a nicer job on all 20 or so covers when itís not so cold.)
Tom
