Sliding Window Leaks

I have some water dribbling down on occasions on the inside of my my coach just below the window frames in the cockpit area. I've cleaned the weep holes and they drain good. It might be the sweeps not sure. Anyone have these issues?

Have you checked outside at the roof line? Sometimes the rivets where the roof meets the wall need to be resealed.

Sliding Window Leaks

It's not that. If I tape the glass at the bottom over the track It seams to help but the water with a hose does weep out of the weep holes.

Had same issue ended up putting a bead of black silicone chalk at the top of the frameless window solved my problem. Sometimes the seals dry out and crack easier than pulling the window and replacing the seal

I had my windows done down there too, and I'm NOT very happy with their installation. They had a very hard time with my windows, but when they installed the passenger side, they knew it wasn't right and just did what ever they could to get me out of there. My passenger window was leaking also, and when I investigated it, it had a 1/4 in gap on the top right corner filled with silicone. I had a devil of a time getting all that crap off, then repositioned the window and resealed it. I take the rubber out of the track and wash them out very good, you will be surprised how much stuff comes out of them. My windows are not held in with a screw from the inside, but held in place with a rubber seal. I put some plastic wedges between the wall and frame then used a black urethane caulk to seal them up. Hasn't rained since we did this last week but I'll be keeping an eye on it. If they used silicone on yours you may have the same problem. It's a bear to get off.

Yep wasn't happy with them either. So you think it's maybe not draining quick enough and then gets in under the slider?

I've had other windows do that before. There was all kinds of crap in my widows, under the rubber blocking the weep holes. I blew it out with compressed air then washed them out. Yours looks the same as mine on the outside. That rubber just pulls out by the slider.

Yep I've done all that awhile back.
