Water in the window channel

Been raining in North Carolina for over 24 hours now. Most of the felt lower linings of my sliding windows are soaked.

Probably. There are weep holes in the bottom of the window channels that drain the water. As long as it's not running in I think you're okay. If you have water intrusion, make sure the weep holes are clear.

The holes are clear, just moisture on the inside felt in the channel. None leaking out from the inside into the coach.

They make covers for your weep holes so they still allow water to drain, but not come in.

I have them on all of my windows, especially near the front of the coach. They can keep wind whistling down while driving.

I have the covers on mine. Last time I was waxing it I happened to bump and pop off one of the covers. It was full of insect nests. Also, just because your weep holes look OK doesn't mean insects haven't built nests up in them. Take a piece of wire and poke it up in the slots to make sure the hole is clear.

I had the same problem and began to look into the channels and found that the drain openings were blocked with very small tabs. I removed the tabs and no more water.
