Adding Sealant to Window Frames?

I always wondered why my window frames are not sealed all the way around on the outside. I am familiar with the installation technique and also do not have any leaks. Only the top of the frame has proflex sealant. Any reason not to complete the seal around the sides and bottom with more clear proflex as a preventative measure?

Hi, I have a similar concern, except it seems I do have water getting in as my wallpaper is bubbling. The rig is only a year old...with NO sealant around my exterior windows. It's a 2016 Coachmen Orion...and I'm wondering WHY they wouldn't put sealant there...as a first time owner, I never thought to check...

Reason is Forest River slaps their junk trailer together as fast as they can and don`t have one care about quality . Its all about getting them out the door and sold . After Having my 2014 work n play I`ll never buy another rv again . They should name them all work and no play .

So far it's been a lot of small things...THIS is major and has very bad potential. Hoping they will take care of it...we shall see. Ron Ross has been very helpful in the past...hoping he's got one more up his sleeve.
