Water in window track?

Went and checked for leaks after hard rains like I always do and a this is a new to me unit I am still getting used to it. I found water sitting in the window track of the drivers window. The wall is dry, carpet is dry, as far as I can tell the window drains look clear of Debree. But how ever the felt like window guides are very very dirty almost muddy. I towels up the water and tried clearing an other objects that might be clogging any thing but does anyone else out there have any other suggestions where this water might be coming from as its dry everywhere else and my seals are in great shape and there is no evidence of any other water leaks btw it's a 1995 Winnebago Brave

The lower track of the sliding window should have a drain in the rubber to allow water to go out through the frame drain , you may have to lift the rubber to make sure there is nothing blocking the passage between the underside of the rubber and the aluminum, clean with a Q tip and pour in water to test.

My double pane Herr windows have a plastic strip in the bottom of the track. It has has holes every 2 inches in it to let the water exit under the strip and out the slits on the outer frame. Over time dirt fills the holes and restricts the water from exiting. Water will fill the track and leak near the corners if they plug the drain slits. Once the track is dry, use a curved pick and lift the strip and vacuum the bottom of the track. I do this a couple of times a year. I have even used compressed air to clean the slits from the outside.

Also, on mine there is a rubber track plug strip to help to keep water from getting into the track on the outside. It is wedged in and pulls out for cleaning. When you reinsert it, start at the bottom and butt it up to the window and work it around the slot and if it is too short, the gap is at the top.
