Leaking window, new 174BH

Hi all!

My wife and I just took delivery of our brand new 174BH and took it out camping this past weekend. Well, we drove home in a decent little rain and when we got home, there was some water leakage up by the very front window on the queen bed. Upon further investigation it appears the seal around the actual pane of glass appears to be loose, to the point you can actually pull it out from the window. We bought it out of state so we really hate to tow it all the way back for a repair, is this something a little caulk can fix or what?

thanks for any help!
Jeff

I saw a post on here a little while ago where someone took out all of his windows and replaced the butyl sealant. I will try and dig it up for you. I thought it was a pretty cool post. It actually looked easier than I thought to do it yourself.

It's not as hard to do this as you might think. Our RV dealer holds seminars on doing this sort of thing.
