Water collecting under front wind shield rubber seal!

Have a 2088 Monaco Knight. I was looking at the exterior rubber seal that goes around the front wind shield. I pulled up the rubber from the bottom of the seal away from he body. A bunch of water came running out. I recently put some more sealer on the top of the rubber seal on the roof. Still the problem.

Is water coming in from the seal and the wind shield? No water inside. However, a number of months ago when we had a ton of rain and I did some water on top of the rubber seal on the bottom of the window on the inside of e coach.

What do you guys think?

Steve, I have had a problem with my passenger side windshield leaking a little in a hard rain. That side was replaced by Camping World about three years before the leak appeared. I did apply a thin bead of windshield sealer down the center of my windshield(s) under the strip that separates the two windshield panels, in order to stop a leak there. If you can get to the area that you think is collecting the water, you might apply some windshield sealer under the rubber seal. I know it's hard to lift the seal and apply the sealer at the same time, but if you can get someone to help by lifting the seal as you apply the sealer that will stop the water from entering. Don't put much, maybe lay an 1/8 inch bead since the sealer will fill the gap very easily. Good luck.

On the top of the window, I had put some sealer on the edge of the rubber seal sitting next to the fiberglass body. I will go back again and put some more. I will also try the put some sealer under the rubber seal on the side. I have a couple of spots on the top near the side that seems to have some gaps. I will look again at them too.

Any other thoughts?

You probably need to closely inspect the entire Seal against the Fiberglass and the Glass to ensure that there is Sealer continously against the glass and the Fiberglass. The problem with our windshields is, that the glass is heavy and moves within the Seal and the outside of the Seal moves against the fiberglass as well. If there was not enough Sealer used when the windshield was installed it may have dried out, and or been displaced by the vibration going down the road. If you can't get the water stopped, you may need to have the windshield removed by a "GOOD Glass Shop," if you can find one. It doesn't take them long to pull the glass, cleanup the residue, and reinstall the glass. You should be ready to go after that. Hopefully, you will be able to find the void that is causing your problem w/o having to resort to glass removal. Good luck.

In 2088 we won't be having motorhomes and we will all be eating Solyent Green, if any of us live that long.
