Luckily we know the owner very well and I am totally confident they will take care of me.
i was able to run a bead of caulk around the entire front window today. I got up on the roof and everything looks brand new up there, didnt see any crack in the sealant. Sprayed the front down with a garden hose for 20 minutes no leaks. We also got a really heavy rainstorm this evening and still dry. I guess the water was coming in around the window. Im still going to have the dealer pull that window out and re seal it.

The dealer should install Butyl tape between the window and side. I had a leak at the window of a previous rig and could not find it. I pulled the window, removed the old tape, installed more, re-installed and then caulked the top and down several inches with Polyurethane caulking to fix it.

Just got it back from dealer...said the outer frame had a very small gap and that caused the leak. We'll see I guess. Go the new tire installed too. Glad that one is replaced, a bulged sidewall is never good!

I have similar problem at the sloped front windo but it is not a leak between the window frame and the siding. I had pulled that and reset in butyl tape and then caulked the outside edge of frame. Where the leak is coming from is between the glass and the frame. I had the glass pulled and reset because I could tell the glass was loose from the aluminum frame. It was set with a clear tape between the glass and the frame. But the water is running down the outside of the glass when it rains and catches at the outside vinyl trim. The water works its way down between the glass and the bottom horizontal section of vinyl trim and then leaks back into the interior between the glass and the aluminum frame. Not much water but enough to wet the pillow and be a nuisance. My trailer is a 2003 Wildwood and that outside vinyl trim that helps lock the glass into the frame is not cracked but is not laying as tight as it probably was originally. I am going to remove it and try to find some new of same shape. Hopefully a better fit will keep the water from working between the glass and seal.

Just noticed this today, was worse with sun on it. I suppose this is the result from above and no way FR will fix this far out of warranty. Just weird it is looks like delaminating up instead of down. Any suggestions on this one. I am always looking along the trailer for this type of stuff. It's frustrating, I hope it doesn't get worse.

Maybe it trapped water and then froze?
