Slideout Water Leak

Purchased a new 267RBSS in December. Used it a couple of times in miserable wet weather. After the second trip, when I checked the trailer in storage, water had gotten in the trailer I believe through the slide seal. Dried it out and took it to a dealer. Tech said there was a leak in the slide seal which they repaired and leveled the slide too. This took a month. Just checked the unit again after a rain and there is water in the unit again. I will be taking it to the shop yet again. This is so frustrating. I had a popup for years before moving up to this trailer so I know stuff happens but am getting a little irked with how this investment has worked out so far. Looking for commiseration and advice.

Just had a thunderstorm pass by. Lots of rain. Sat inside the trailer and see that the water is coming in through the corner of a window on the slide out from under the molding that surrounds the opening.

Check to see that the exterior of the window is installed right side up instead of upside down. There should be two horizontal slats in the bottom frame of the window that allows water to drain to the exterior. The upper slats on the top of the frame should have rubber pieces plugging those holes.

By the way, I'm in the Silver Lake area of Everett. If you ever need to compare or need an extra set of eyes on your Surveyor, let me know. We bought ours new from the dealer in Burlington in June of last year.

It's starting to get sunny here

Thanks for that. Window is installed right side up. Weep holes are open. I believe I am past warranty for a window/water issue as it worked fine at the 90 day point. Would a simple fix be to silicone seal around the window or does it need to be pulled and the seal replaced?
