The repair took only about 45 minutes. Very very easy to do. As you see in the pics you only need a screwdriver, plastic putty knife and a roll of sealant that you pickup at your local hardware store for $10 (can) They call this doum doum sealant. So from inside I unscrewed the metal frame and with a person on the outside to hold the window I pushed it out , then I removed the old seal that wasn't installed properly, this was made of foam, cleaned the old glue with lighter fluid ,installed the new sealant and reinstalled the the window. You can see in the pics the black area on the foam insulation where the water was entering.We tested the repair with a garden hose and there was no leak. This is so easy anyone can do it, no need to wait days or weeks to have it done. If anyone needs more details feel free ...:thumbsup:

You need to (re)caulk with silicone around the outside weather cover that fits over the range vent exhaust fan discharge through the rear of the camper.

FR used an extremely thin application of silicone without any gasket. The flexing of the fiberglass skin on the outside due to temperature changes cracked the original caulking all the way around the cover. Water was running in through the crack and dripping from the exhaust fan hood. We had pretty significant water damage to the lower part of the cabinets.
