Water leak Driver's Window

During heavy rainfall events, we see water collecting in the guides for the sliding window and screen. Looks like it is coming in towards the front side of window (part where the screen and window slide into when open).

Anyone else have a similar issue. I am bring in the coach for last round of service within the 1 year sale closing date, and would like to get some ideas of areas to check for missing seals, etc.

We have a 2018 XL 40C.

Thanks

Water leak Driver's Window

Yep. Me too. Multiple windows actually. Iíve posted about this previously.

I havenít taken it to FR yet for the service or anything. These do t have the little gutter system or anything. So water just pours down that driver window.

Now I may be mistaken, but the 4 little slots along the bottom edge of the window....aren't those...Drains ? When I wash my TT or we have heavy rain, it collects in the track, but then drains out of the little slots along that bottom edge.

Yep, make sure the holes are not obstructed.

Will Check vents/drains

Thanks Guys.

I'll check the slits to ensure they are open.

Anyone have a suggestion for a rain gutter. My problem is not a leak but the roof water drains toward the driver window, runs down the window and leaves a stain on the window. Any suggestions?

Has same problem on my 2011 390QS. Had to install new piece of stationary glass in the drivers side this spring because of seal failure. After putting in the new glass, I watched the rainwater pour down that side. I ordered a piece of heavy aluminum door drip cap that had nice curve in it with a small mounting flange. Cut it to fit over all the glass & mounted it above the windows. Sticks out about 2 1/4". Now all rain flows over that & then drops to the ground without touching the coach wall at all! You don't even know it's there because I painted it to match the coach. Works great!
