Repair Leaky Window

Last week we had two days of significant rainfall and discovered a leaky window. The only time it leaks is when the coach is leveled. The water pools up on the exterior and eventually leaks in. I thought it may be the weep holes but cleaned them out and it still leaked. The exterior of the wi Dow has what appears to be a pushed in trim but I don't want to remove to deal the window without some guidance. I really don't think it's a tough job but would most appreciate any assistance in understanding how to remove the exterior trim and re sealing window.

I have Attached photos.

Before you pull window apart make sure all the weep holes bottom of window are clear and not taped up or full of pine needles or crushed leaves.
Here is a link about someone's same problem.
You can reseal yourself by using flat ribbon tape around outside flange of window and it will compress to sidewall when interior screws are tighten.
There are other window threads you can search for at top of forums, just input "leaky window".

I just resealed 5 windows myself with the help and advice of the good folks on here. Is your water actually leaking inside through the window, or around the edge of the frame. You need at least 2 people to reseal them. There is a trim ring which is the inside frame of your with 20 to 30 screws. This is what holds in the windows. You need about 15 ft of 1inch butyl tape, a torque bit end for your screw driver, a heavy duty putty knife, some rags and mineral spirits.

Just Google TV window reseal, there is a good utube video that shows you the process.

Sometimes, the windows leak at the frame and they need to be reglazed. This is a much more expensive and time consuming process and is best left to vendors that are in the. Business of doing this.
