Front passanger side window question

Have a 2008 Monaco Knight. The rubber seal around the window is in bad shape. I am talking about the window next to the door next to the passenger seat. The window slides up and down.

When it rains hard and water is running down over the window the water can get in from the bottom of the window. Not a lot. I checked the weep holes and noticed the seal around the bottom of the window is bad. Can I replace just it? Where can I get one? Is it easy to remove. Not sure I need the seal for the entire window, just the bottom. The window slides into the seal.

Thanks for your comments.

Steve, the weep holes should take care of the water unless the seal is so bad out of line that it prevents the water from draining. If the seal indeed is bad from the initial window construction, you can remove the window to see who manufactured it and order a new seal for your window. The windows are not hard to disassemble, but it does take a little time and patience. Without the benefit of knowing exactly what part of your seal that is the problem area, would it be possible to remove the window, lay it down on a flat surface and take it apart? Possibly, you may be able to straighten the seal and maybe use some windshield sealer to help reinstall the seal and glass. I replaced a piece of double insulated glass into one of my frames using this method. Hopefully, you will be able to do the same. If you have specific questions relative to the process of disassembling a window, there are a number of individuals that have done this and should be able to offer advice. Good luck with the task.

I don'tr know if they made these.... but Beverly at Atwood is a genius when it coms to RV windows.

Also, mine is tinted very dark, if yours is not, I'd be glad to swap wth you, and deal with the leak myself?
