Window leakage 2018 28.5RSTS HT fifth wheel

I just went through major Upper Michigan wind and massive rain. Rear slider window had water steady running from top framing onto couch and down wall. Has anyone else had this issue? Dealer will be looking at, repairing asap.

Had the same thing happen this past weekend on our Precept only its on the drivers window. Sounds like the same kind of leak tho, water leaking from the top of the window frame. Dealer was notified and will address it. Only problem is we are putting it in storage this week (inside) so will have to wait till spring for repair. Keep us posted on your repair.

The leak I had was also pouring in steady from driver side top frame. Crawled up there yesterday. Window, back up camera, and back up light looked sealed good. Wondering if air conditioner loosened up? And is leaking from their. More rain coming so to dealer this morning.

Out of curiosity, are they standard windows or frameless?

They are standard slider windows. The one that leaked was the big one in back. It leaked from the top behind the window box dressing. Dealer ship did not find why and stated because of hard rain and 50 plus mph wind it leaked the one time. Dealer hasbeen very hard to work with since purchase. I will be using a different Jayco dealer with an appointment scheduled Nov. 6 for a propane compartment door and frame replacement. They will look at window.

I also looked at backup.camera, back up light. All looked good. Asked dealer about a.c. loosening up they said looked good. So nothing found, nothing fixed.

Dealership I bought from is worst I've dealt with in 25 years of rv ing. Bad workmanship and will lie through their crooked smile. Good purchase price and that is it.

Here is one thing you can check. I would've hoped the dealership checked this but who knows. On the standard RV windows there are little slots cut in the exterior of the window frame which allows condensation from the inside of the glass to drain out the exterior through those slots. For whatever reason they cut those slots at the top and bottom of the window I presume so they can install the window in either orientation. The only slots needed are the bottom ones since the condensation runs to the bottom so they plug the top slots. These plugs have been know to blow out going down the road and cause water issues which would present itself from the top portion of the window. I experienced this with my old Grand Design 5th wheel. Also, even if the plugs are there, it's possible they are leaking. What I ended up doing was pulling all of them out and filling them in with ProFlex Sealant. I don't know if this is your issue or not but it may be worth looking at as it's a simple fix and probably a good thing to do anyway. Whatever you do, don't plug the bottom holes or the condensation that forms on you window will not drain and will eventually run down your interior wall. Also, keep an eye on your bottom slots as they are know to become clogged with crud overtime which can lead to the same thing. Hope that helps!

I did see the slots on top. Makes no sense.Thanks for advice to fill top ones. I still say there has to be a reason they leaked on top.This is my third fifth wheel and fourth rv. The only one that leaked at a window was an old truck slide in I bought for $700 many years ago.

If the slots at the top are open then it's a good chance that's where the water is getting in. Have you checked the lap sealants on the roof? I assume this is a fiberglass trailer so if it's coming from above and down inside the wall you could end up with wall delamination. Water leaks can be a real pain in the @$$ to track down sometimes.
