Water inside the window track

Hello folks . A few months ago I mentioned that on my new coach the windows were leaking most of them inside the track one or two from above which was pretty scary. Just recently the windows were switched out and replaced. The last two days it's been nonstop raining so I figured it would be a good time to check the new windows. On most of the windows I do not see water but there are a few where water has soaking inside the track. Is it normal for water to get inside the track on a good rainy day. They are new windows so nothing is clogging the weep holes. Thanks All.

Hi Cola NY: Are you sure you aren't working with "some condensation" in the coach? gebills

Check the weep holes along the outside bottom of the window frame, and when they dry up, vacuum the track out.

What could be happening is the outside track is filling up and overflowing into the inside track at the ends. The weep holes in the frame could look clear, but dirt in the track is blocking or slowing down the draining of the water.

Just my $.02 worth, I know this has happened to me with my Hehr windows. I have not had any more problems since I have been vacuuming my window track regularly.

It's normal for rain water to get in the track, but it should quickly drain out the weep holes. in the outside frame. Use a toothpick to insure it is open. It will, at some point get clogged with debris washing off the roof, nearby tree, etc.
If your entire window frame was replaced, perhaps those weep holes were never open.

Get you a squirt bottle and spray the windows, maybe you can see the weep hole working, or not.
