Class A windshield leak

Help, '94 Winnebago Adventurer. Top of both windshields are leaking. What is the best temporary fix, what holds the rubber strip round the top on?

Use black Gorilla duct tape until you get to the shop. Your windshields may have to be removed and re installed.

Try to get Sicoflex 221. Make sure you wear rubbergloves that stuff is messy (black) but it works. Cheers Gerald

windshield leak

I just purchased a 2005 itaska suncruiser by the time we got it home from arizona we found both windshields are loose and leaking. Further inspection the metal header is rusted and the seal is loose.I am having trouble with the dealer to repair this problem. Could use some help in getting this problem resolved. Thanks

Some of us have been down that same road.

Do a search on "windshield leaks", you will find out much information on this subject.

Here was my post form a couple of years back. Click here

Thanks to all. Talked to a MH windshield replacement specialist and was advised to use 3M Drip Check. It could be a permanent fix. If not, he said make sure I have glass insurance coverage because the glass could break when removed.

I found a solution: Flex Seal. The tv commercial where thy cut hole in the bottom of a row boat. This stuff is amazing, comes in a spray can, clear or black. I masked off the top of the w/s and sprayed it on, voila, no leak. Pricey an takes two weeks to get, but worth it. Just got back from a 300 mile trip an no leak. Will post web address tomorrow.

Had both windshields replaced in my 2005 Winnebago Sightseer. The problem as I see it is that the windshield is glued to the metal frame, and then the black molding is put on either with a channel and sealant or just sealant. All well and good for the windshield not leaking, but the problem most have is that the water comes in under the black molding and onto metal frame, thus it rust and eventually leaks (not the window but around the frame. After I tried to talk to the window installers about this to no avail, when I got home I put sealant under the outside edge of the black molding on top, bottom and sides.

Winnie windshield

After thousands of $$ and several windshield vendors, I decided on weather resistant black Duck Tape all the way around. It works, its cheap, and you can't tell unless you look close. Change it out every couple of years. Only draw back is getting the glue off, but careful use of acetone works. Four years and no leaks.

Dido on what Sugardog said! After having my fronts resealed and still leaking I bought a roll of Gorilla tape, traced out the trim with it and haven't had a drop come through in over a year.

I had a '93 Adventurer with what I thought was a windshield leak, turned out to be the clearance lights above the windshield. On that model, the lights are recessed into the front cap, water was getting into the recessed area, then running down the inside of the windshield. I put some clear packaging tape over the lights and it never leaked again. I eventually re-sealed the lights. Just something to take a look at.
