Leaky window

I have one window that leaks like a sieve on my A122BH, especially in heavy rain. It is one of the front windows beside the dinette.

I had it to the dealer once to "repair" it, to no avail.

I was thinking of using silicone to seal up all around the window, but don't know if this is the right product to use. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Do not use silicone on your trailer. Nothing in the future will stick to it. The favorite seems to be Geoseal Proflex RV.

Thanks for your responses. I think I will use the Geoseal followed by the eternabond tape. It maybe overkill, but better that than have more leaks.

Eternalbond will be the problem solver maker. Works very well and no more leaks. Look around the internet for prices, they will vary.

Just use the Eternabond tape, no need to mess with sealant under it, wont help. Here is what mine looks like going into its fourth season, never a leak, did all skylights and around fan base. Just make sure to install it correctly, must buy the roller and roll over it real good as this is what activates the bond, watch a video on Youtube.

Flex Seal now has tape on the store shelves. Has anyone tried that?

I would not use it, if it doesn't work you have a mess on your hands. This is what Eternabond tape was designed for and has a proven track record.

Flex Seal has been used by a few other people with disastrous results. It has cracked and peeled over time.


Just use Eternabond. No need to remove the old sealant or place new sealant over the leaking or separating prior sealant. Good for 10 years if you follow the directions.
