scenic window leaking water into frame running onto entertainment ctr top

Several months ago I noticed water on my entertainment ctr top after a hard rain and caulked the scenic window frame. It seemed to do the trick. But, this past week we had several hard rains and the water poured into the window frame inside, ran onto the entertainment center cabinet and dripped on the floor. Could it be the window vent is clogged up? Why are those things there? Where does the water go when it drips into the vent? If it's the vent, how do I clean it out? Due to my husband's health I do most all the repairs so would appreciate help on this issue. Know leaks can be a "needle in a haystack!"

We've experienced a leak around the bedroom window during periods of heaving rain. We re-caulked around the window and thought the problem solved but this spring it was worse than ever.

Then while up on the roof, I noticed that the rubber roof material was actually damaged along the seal over the leaky window. I must have snagged a branch. Anyway, I cleaned the area with mineral sprits and gooped up the area pretty heavy with Dicor and the problem in now solved for good.

Thank you so much for your reply regarding the leaking scenic window. I cleaned out the tracking inside and ran water with a hose through the weep holes. They seemed to be clear and my husband checked the top of the camper. He saw nothing amiss but you're quite right, there can be damage from overhanging trees anywhere! I went online and ordered some weep hole covers. Little things have a cover over the top to keep heavy rain storms from overloading the weep holes' drain capacity. So far, so good. We just returned from the beautiful NC mountains and survived some heavy rains without leakage. Campers are a breed of their own in that so much can be the source of problems! We've dealt with dirt dabbers building nests in the slide out awnings making the inside separate and rust, a mouse in the converter destroying it and the battery and this past week, baby birds in the king pin cover with the mother still at our home! All this; this year. May as well laugh-- Thanks and happy trails!
