Windshield leak!

2014 328TS here, on a trip and it's raining and now noticing on the passenger side of the windshield, water is dripping down....quite a bit too. We just had the MH in to repair a bathroom hose leak (manufacture defect). Anyone else had this problem?

Water leak over windshield

I thought i had a wind shield leak. Turns out the leak was around clearance lights on roof. Cw sealed around all roof lights stopping all leaks.

Either way, water is dripping down on inside of windshield. Calling for more rain but we'll put a towel down.

Look on the top of both corners of windshield and see if the gasket has come away from the coach..if so use a lite bead of caulking..

Please take your coach to an authorized dealer or call Forest River and ask if they will reimburse you for a glass company expert to come to you. My 337 had a wind shield leak and it ended up being installed incorrectly. If the gasket is not flat against the coach and glass get a pro to help you. Caulking did not resolve my leak. The wind shield had to be removed and reinstalled.

If you do caulk make sure you use the correct type of caulking. The glass guy that came to my house found 2 types of caulking used. I'm only hoping it will not be a problem in the future.

Same problem here. Dealership caulked the clearance lights and the leak stopped.

I had a small leak on drivers side and the windshield tech found a small defect which the silicone dripped and he just resealed with new and all is fine.

Couple of years ago ran into some pretty heavy rain along Florida Panhandle As a result water made it inside the windshield and down onto dashboard deck overnight. Had a look in morning and found a gap had developed in caulking along top of windshield ( between rubber gasket and m/h skin). We took it to local dealer who called in rep from Guardian Glass ( windshield mfr.) He advised unlike a car, glass is not fixed but instead allowed to "float " in the opening hence the gap. While he was prepared to remove and reinstall the w/s he advised there was every chance gap could develop again.Decision was made to have dealer clean up the gap and apply 3M Window Weld caulking ( which is available most auto parts) . I now carry a caulk gun ,caulking and make windshield inspection part of regular inspection . So far so good
