Excuse my ignorance... what are 'couch Windows plugs' and how did they allow it to 'rained all inside the camper'?

Sofa ( auto correct got me) the window behind it. There are 4 plugs on the top of the window. Which this window was missing. So the heavy down pours we had all week long allowed the rain to saturate the floor behind the sofa.

Sofa ( auto correct ) window plugs was missing. Which allowed 5 days of heavy down pours to saturate the floor.

OK thanks. I guess I just don't understand.
I've never seen any R/V windows that need some kind of plug to keep them from leaking.
In fact, I've seen windows leak from not having the frame weep holes cleaned so you would never want to plug them.

Any chance of a photo?

OK... if they look like the ones in the photo below... they are NOT to be plugged.
They are as you said... drain holes. They allow water to drain OUT of the window/frame.

If you plug them, you are asking for problems.
If your windows leak, it isn't because of these holes needing plugs.
They likely leak because they are not sealed properly to the side of the unit.

Either way. The service manager ordered us a new window/ frame. Ordered two side box doors they put the wrong ones on. Ours open up not side to side, so all the drill holes are in the wrong place. Right now he has a machine dehumidifier inside drying the unit out. Still has to figure out where all the water came that gushed out the front under belly when we hooked it up. The plugs are the ones on the top of the window, he even pointed that out. The window rained on the inside where every one of those was located. So he is sealing all the Windows. Might just say I am paying for a lemon to get patched. I was told three strikes and it is theirs.
