I have recently discovered that the left side bedroom window on my 1994 Winnebago Vectra has a water leak when it rains hard. This is the emergency escape also. The trough at the bottom of the window seems to collect water, have cleaned out the drain holes to the outside but still seems to leak. I have had repair shop look at the sealant and they said it looks good. Wondered if anyone had experienced this and if anyone had any ideas on a fix.

Not on that particular window, but the side window in the bedroom slide is showing the same symptoms. In a heavy rain I end up with a wet table surface on the inside. I've tried spraying water from a hose at various angles and cleaning drain holes, etc., with no results. Still haven't found where it is coming in and the sealant looks good all around.

We've had so much rain lately. I've found several leaks that I never new I had! I'm wondering if after this unusual rainy season, if they will ever show up again.

If the drain channels are really clogged up you will have to use a wire to run throught the weep holes toward both sides of the window frame. This will break up the dirt etc in the channel.
The dirt that collects gets hard and it can not be blown out of the channel with water or air.

When using water pressure through the weep holes be sure to have someone inside with a towel to catch any water that will be forced into the coach. And believe me water will come into the coach.
