Slideout leak at window frame

Hi. I am new to the thread, and joined mainly to investigate possible solutions to my leaky living room window (frame, NOT glass) in the large slide-out on our 2016 berkshire XLT 43-A. I have checked the exterior glass-to-wall interface seal, and even applied some silicone sealant... still, after steady rains, i get a pretty frequent drip from where the metal frame is attached to the inside of the slideout wall up near the shade reels. I'm thinking the slideout wall attaching flange under the slideout topper has a breached seal. My leak does seem to occur once water has dripped/blown under the slideout topper. Familiar to anyone? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Will further investigate when weather improves....

If you have sealed the outside of the window then I think that's the next place I would check.

It sounds more like the slide roof is leaking than the window frame.
If you do find it, I suggest repairing it with Eternabond tape.

If you can't find it, it may be worthwhile to have a Sealtech leak detection ran on the RV.
