Entry Awning

The entry awning on our 2004 Intrigue lets water leak behind the metal housing and down the sidewall. Eventually it drips down the door. If it is raining much at all we get wet when trying to enter the coach. Has anyone solved this issue? Could I caulk the opening on the top of the connection, between the housing and sidewall, leaving the bottom open?

I would. I like Geocel Proflex Clear for that kind of project.

I have not run across Geocel Proflex before. Where can I find it? I have used pure silicon clear or white for years but I am open to better if I can find it.

I just ordered some from Amazon.

A local RV storage lot carries it.

Silicone is hard to remove and apply sealant where it was. Proflex is recommended for fiberglass and the flexibility required for RV earthquakes.

Have you looked up there close? Mine does the same thing. It looks (from the ground anyway) like there's a rubber sweep on the back of the awning. Mine appears to be kind of dry and bent up. I don't think the silicone will work because the awning slides forward and backward. I was looking for some automotive drip rail that I could stick on just below the awning rail to channel the water forward or back. If I'm wrong, let me know and I'll do the silicone thing too.
