Has any body had problems with the windows leaking? There are vents on the bottom of the window frame and I was told that this was for water drainage. Why would you want drainage on the inside of your camper? I have had water sitting on my counter top after a rain because of these. Any suggestions?

All windows have those unless they are frameless.
Either your drains are clogged if you're sure that's the cause, or the leak is from something else.

The vents should be open to the outside... they allow any water that condenses on the inside of the window to run down into the channel and out of the trailer instead of spilling over into the inside. If the vents drain to the inside then your windows are installed wrong.

You need to check to make sure you don't have a window gasket leak. I've had my trailer in all kinds of nasty rainstorms and never had those drains leak.
