Windshield leak

We have a 2008 Winnebago Voyage. There is a leak on the driver's side that I have taken off the trim inside and the molding over the outside window. I have resealed the top edge of the molding outside 5 times but it still leaks in one spot. Any solutions as to where this leak might be coming from? I resealed areas where the face cap meets the roof that looked like there might be a leak. Totally puzzled and discouraged. Any thoughts?

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your leak. Someone on the forum will have an idea or two about the source of the leak. You can also try the search box at the top right of the page. Enter "front window leak 2008 Winnebago". There is some info on older threads regarding leaks.

Safe and Happy Travels.

The hardest leak to stop that I ever had was at the top of the glass between the glass and the rubber seal. I kept sealing the rubber to the cap. I still had a leak. Finally I sealed the rubber to the windshield and it stopped. They say water can not go uphill but somehow this did. I have also had a lot of leaks that were 3 or 4 feet from where the water was coming in. Check nearby for any small openings.

Look at this area and along the seam of the roof. The main place the leak was coming was water was rushing and getting under the cap. They do not seal under this area so if you are stopped or coming to a stop it was like a waterfalls.

It may not be the windshield. It could be a running light. Water gets into the running light and runs down the inside of the front cap and onto the windshield.

Agree with Dutch Star Don. I had windshield people on my Thor Hurricane to reseal it. They examined the windshield and told me it was not leaking. It turned out to be the running lights above the windshield that was causing the leak.

Had a similar problem a friend of mine who used to supervise the city transit shop installed a product called Sica Flex all along the top rubber windshield seal that was over 1 year ago and it has withstood some torrential rains and no leaks.
