Water getting in the windows

Hello all. I have a brand-new class C. But water keeps getting in the windows from what I see the water hits the window drips down and gets inside the track of the window.now I notice that the track where the window slides Open theres little hose for the water to go down but the water is not going down and out of the weep holes it's just building up in the window rack and overflowing inside. Any idea or opinions thanks all.can I bring it back to Dealer too far away

You may contact any dealer for your brand of RV to have warranty work performed, doesn't have to be the selling dealer.
If you want to DIY, run a small flexible wire down the tube and drain/weep holes. They can be plugged with sealant.

I had the same problem on the passenger window on my class A. I had a mobile RV service take a look at it and all they did was take a zip tie and clean out all of the weep holes. I then bought the "EZE RV Gutter system" from Camping World and installed it on the top frame of the window to help divert the rain. I have not had a problem since then. I would not seal up the weep holes, just run the zip tie thru every so often.

Sometimes you can clear those weep holes by using compressed air, either from a compressor or possibly one of the spray cans.

I agree, clean the weep holes. but, fix the problem, not the symptom, the problem is there is tree 'dirt" in window track that is plugging the weep hole. You need to vacuum or blow the entire window track clean or it could plug again the next rainfall.

My Herr windows have a plastic slider track with holes in it, I have to lift and vacuum every 6 months to keep them clean.

My unit is new there is no debris in the track. I bought this coach From a factory direct so they built it as you ordered it. it was not sitting outside I only have it three months. But I did blow it out anyway. The windows I have in my RV Has a furry liner in the track something you would see in automobiles. One of the windows is actually leaking from the top as well the company said they will replace the windows.
