2019 Berk windows leak?

Ive got a 19 berk with the frameless windows. Was in my first big rain and at least 3 of the windows leak. This normal? Typically is this just a caulking issue?

We had the same problem with our 2017 Legacy, turned out that it wasn't the window leaking, the leak was at the slide topper frame that wasn't sealed at the factory.

How did the water make it onto the inside of the window glass in that case? And do you have any specific pictures where it came in? I have the berk in a heated garage at the moment so Iím not too too worried about it but Iím about to use it for a month straight so Iíd like to get it resolved before that.

By the way, the videos above were shot with all of the slides open.

The leak was coming from the top of the frame. Slides were out when pics were taken.

2019 Berk windows leak?

Have any pics of the outside if the rv where the water came in? Iím not clear on why there was an issue with the slide topper, but water ended up coming in through the window glass.

And how about my drivers window? Thereís no slide or slide topper there.

I must have misunderstood your post, at first I thought the water was coming from the frame and glass as that's where the water was running out of. Sorry for the confusion.

So anyone have any advice for the multiple windows leaking? Just a caulking issue maybe ?
