Chaparral 360IBL

In heavy rain and I notice water pooling on inside window tracks of windows on either side of large back windows. Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks I notice that when I push on lower section of glass it moves a little from silicone bead. Not sure if seal is compromised.

We have benchmarked 11 days camping so far in our 360IBL and of those 11 days, we have torrential rain, hail and gusty winds on 7 days. Haven't noticed any water pooling on the back window behind the couch. Is that the back window you were talking about? I will look in the future...

I have a 5 day trip coming up in 2 weeks, I'll keep an eye out if it rains as well to see if I get anything collecting in the window frame/channel.

The windows on either side of the couch. These do not have weep holes. I am imagining that the silicone seal has been compromised. Going out to the rally in Goshen early and taking it to the factory to get the spider cracks in front cap fixed and they will look at the windows.

I have heard that some windows have been installed upside down, do not remember which mfg, but check that just in case.

IS this window in a slide ? If it is had the same problem. It was leaking from the wall seam and running down inside the wall and running into the window track from above.
