Leaking Around the Driver's Window

2008 38ft HR Vacationer: When running the front AC after the coach is leveled, water flows down and over the driver's window. Water leaks into the window and leaks onto the control panel and also inside the wall coming out the bottom spreading onto the carper. Checked the window seals and see no problems. Used ProFlex RV sealant around the top of the window and down the sides. Still leaks.

Any suggestions?

Have you checked the sealant where the roof joins the wall and where the front cap is connected to the roof? Sounds like it could be coming from above the window instead of the window itself. Water can come from a long distance from where you think and travel inside the ceiling or conduits.

My sidewall was rotted out next to driver seat due to same issue. Ended up having to remove window, rebuild wall from inside out, and then put back together.

I would recommend remove the window and reseal. I put metal tape all along the window opening so any water would flow either outside or inside the wall, and not in it.

Removed lose panes of glass and then reset with correct black 3m window sealant.

That is the cure. My MH had the same leak. The fiberglass roof was not sealed properly to the gutter/awning rail piece. It is now, I used Rustoleum spray-on leak seal. It is safe for EPDM material, fiberglass, painted surfaces, etc. Site preparation is the key to success though.
