Forest River windows

I have a 2009 Salem LE. Since we have owned it, the sealant used to seal all the windows has slowly run out the bottom of the windows in slow drips. It's like they forgot to mix a hardener into the sealant or used a non-hardening sealant. Last year, we cleaned up all the drips and then I used silicone around all the windows to keep the original sealant in. Has anybody seen this in any of their Salem's or other Forest Rivers?

This year there are still a couple of drips where I did not get the silicone thick enough!

I haven't had your issue but on my work n play 30wr I noticed one of the garage window leaking. Took the inside trim off and discovered the seal is thinner than a stick of gum and just as worthless . Around the window I had gaps as wide as half inch. I decided to silicone all 6 windows . Total of 11 tubes of silicone . Top of the door was leaking and found out why that was . They used putty tape between the door and rain gutter but no putty tape between the rain gutter and the trailer wall . Talk about slap crap together and send it out.
