Winnebago front window leaks vs Tiffin

Winnebagos have a rusting problem around the front windows. The question is, does anybody know how Tiffen front windows are mounted and is with a steel window frame or other material?

Our frame is aluminum, and both sides leak water. We had service on them, but they still leak, filling the tracs then overflowing down the inside wall, even to the point of filling the map holder with water.

I've had 3 Winnebagos, 2000, 2002, 2004 each 7 yrs old when I purchased, and I kept each one for 2 years. Never had a leak/rust issue around the windshield with any of them, nor any evidence of prior leaks/repairs. I'm don't doubt that some coaches have rust/leak problems but I was fortunate.

We had the front windshield replaced on our Allegro RED because of a stone chip type crack. I watched part of this procedure and on our Tiffin the windshield is mounted directly into the fiberglass front cap and there is not any steel or aluminum contacting it.
