Leaking/Loose Window Frames

I had a persistant leak which wetted the floor under the dash by the drivers left foot. In searching and suspecting either the windshield or the front cap as the source I found water under the windshield seal. I searched high and low for the leak and finally found it was the drivers window frame leaking. Caulking stopped the leak but being curious I checked the screws in the frame and found most of them loose. I tightened them to be safe and checked the entire coach. Imagine my shock to find that all my windows had several loose screws each. So far no more wet floor and no water under the windshield seal. I thought about removing the outside window frames and putting a bead of caulking around them but if it ain't broke why fix it? I might create a bigger problem.

Carl -- A bead of silicone around the edges of your windows is advisable --- If you`re not experienced in caulking, I suggest that you use masking tape to mask around the windows, to keep silicone off parts that you don`t it to be -- Silicone is a real bear to remove -- Bill Willard

Loose window frames

I have caulked the windows. My main concern was to alert others that the window frames loosen from road shocks, etc. I have encountered some very bad pot holes on I-10 and I-20 traveling to and from Dallas to West Palm Beach.

Thanks for the advice about masking tape while caulking. I struggled to maintain a neat caulk line without it.
