Resealing windows

Hello we have a 2005 Alfa See Ya. We are looking for suggestions on fixing a window with a leak. We got it out of storage and noticed that the paneling and carpet below window was wet. Itís one of the windows in the bedroom. Looking for suggestions on what we can do to reseal it and what type of sealants to use.

Here's a good video on the subject. You will need to dry out the wall, as the water will stay there and cause mold and mildew.

Window sealing

I have had two TT that DH and I have taken all the windows out and realigned with butyl tape. Then reinstalled and finished the outside with Lexel caulk. Do a search on you tube for a video on how to R&R window. You need to remove the window to see if you can dry out your wet wall. Worst case you have to tear into the wall and replace paneling. On one of our TT we had to tear out walls. No one told us that after 5/6 yrs of ownership to R&R the window. This is the first thing we did to our used unit. The escape window was just starting to delaminate. Wood glue and clamp fixed the problem. The opening for one window was cut a little to big. DH shimmed it up. Keep us posted pictures help us to guide you. Best of luck with your repairs.
