Passenger side top of window?

Is it when sitting or only when driving in rain?

Driving back to home last week-end thru T/S Beryl we developed a slight windshield leak on the top right hand side of the windshield. It was raining pretty hard and it's the first time we've had this problem.

Looking forward to having someone come up with a simple fix!

Our leak is not the windshield, not really sure where water comes. In, might be running lights. She goes to Indian River RV Monday morning, let the pros figure it out.

I think a little preventive maintenance is called for here.
I'm going to remove all the lights and silicone them while it is dry here in Arizona. I'm also going to use a 4" strip of Eternabond tape across the front seam between the roof and cap.

If you don't know what this stuff is here is a forum link as well as my loacl link to buy it.

Iggy, this is my fifth RV so I have a roll of eternabond as well as a lot of other stuff. I do PM constantly, I want to know where the leak is and not just start guessing at where it may or may not be.

Hello. Recently, we had our 2012 Georgetown XL 337 DS washed. Water dripped down the inside of the passenger side of the windshield. The windshield is not seated very well so I immediately assumed that the windshield was leaking. However, I went up on the roof and discovered that the caulking on the seam connecting the front fiberglass cap to the roof had lifted partially. So I recaulked the area. Also, there is a vent cap on the roof which actually serves as access to various satellite antenna wires. I sealed this cap also. This solved the leak problem. I power washed the roof afterwards to check for more leaks. Luckily, the problem was fixed. So, like Ovair and ajh, I found that the source of the leak was not the windshield but the seam at the front cap and the roof.

We had the same front passenger windown leak on our 2011 378, had it fixed at the factory, should have asked where it was, but didn't..... John just said "I know what that is and how to fix it" as soon as we described the leak. Would seem its not an uncommon problem....

When it is setting.The dealer said he thought it was the windhield. Set in the passenger seat and put your left hand on the dash and thats were it was driping at the top.I would suggest puting a towle on the dash and see if it gets wet the only reason i found it was i was putind some grocery's in it on a day it was rainng and heard it driping. The dealer said he was pulling off the side marke lights to and puting silicone on them. Why should i do all that work when its under warranty plus the dealer said he would contact Forest River and get the front end alignment done for me. Great dealership stands behind what they sell
