Water damage

I have a 2004 inspire and have some paneling warping right below the bathroom window. Everything looks sealed around the window. Any ideas how to go about looking for the intrusion and fixing it.

Water can travel along way! Check the roof area above the window, and inspect the area outward from that spot, vents, AC, pipe vents, antenna, etc. Clean and reseal or Eternabond as needed.

Check window weep holes too, make sure they're not clogged.

Best of luck, and let us know what you find,

Water dammage

I would take the window and reseal on the body of the window with butyl tape. Then after putting the window back in use Lexell caulk where the edge of the window meets the outer fiberglass or alum. You Tube has videos on how to do this. Bonus,while you have the window out you will be able to see the condition of your wall. You may need to tear the dammaged wall out and fix it. Take the window out then you can reseal. We found during our restoration that caulk appeared to be okay when it was not. Easier to remove exterior caulk,especially in problem areas. Send me a PM if you need more information.Rubbing alcoholis good for softening ,removing caulk.

Thanks for the info, my bus is wintering in Nevada as I live in SLC UT, we go down often and I will start by sealing the roof then work on the window.

It could be condensation from moist air on the inside of the window running down and damaging the wall.
