HELP! Rain leaking thru drivers window

We are in Ruidoso now in our 2011 DSP 3734. Currently raining pretty hard.

The driver side window is leaking along the track where the window slides back and forth. I've been soaking up the water out of the track but it is still coming in.
I put some tape outside where I thought it was coming in but no luck!

Does anyone have any ideas on this???
Thnks
Jack

There should be some drain holes in the outside of the bottom track, check them for blockage.

I have had the same problem and I have had to recaulk the top of the window to stop the leaks. I scrape out the original silicone and reapply new.

Thank you!!

I looked outside for the drain holes on the bottom of the window frame. Couldn't find them......then the manager of the park rolled up to take a look. Ran a screw driver across the bottom.....all 4 holes were sealed with silicon. Cleaned them out and water came running out. Previous owner must have tried to fix the wind whistle problem.
Still whistles !
Will check sealant on top of window to see where water comes in. Newmar told me that some water will get in during heavy rain????

I had a leak in my Providence like that and found a leak where the front cap and roof came together at the rain gutter. Water dripped down on top of window frame and then came inside thru a joint in the frame. Bout pulled out the rest of my remaining hair before I found it.

We had a leak on the drivers window on the bottom in our Essex. The fix for us was to use velcro with the stiff side attached to the wiper for the window on the bottom. Used self adhesive velcro and it also worked on a Dutch Star. Cut Velcro to the width of wiper for window on the bottom.
