Noob question. Window channel leak ?
First time in our '99 chieftain RV.....Double pain glass (Does not appear to be leaking inside pains)
So My wife and 3 Dogs (German shepherds) went camping in Washington State.. It was pouring and misty We had some condensation around the upper wall that connects to the aluminum frame. We figured that was normal...HOWEVER... we noticed that the windows had tons of condensation at the aluminum as well.
Long story short...We came back home and parked the rv at our house and I ran the dehumidifier and the window channel was dry. Well it started raining again and the felt strip that cradles the glass on the bottom were wet. It is not holding water, just extremely wet. Before the voyage I have sealed the OUTSIDE aluminum window frame and other areas all around the coach (roof, gutters..etc etc). , I only notice the water in the bottom channel.
So here is a couple of questions...
Is a wet fir channel strip normal for a sliding glass window during the rain? Seems to happen on all windows....
Do I need to seal internally ?
Do i need to replace the rubber and felt seals ?
Thanks from a noob.
