Leak in entrance door glass

The last couple of times I washed the rig, I noticed water running down the inside of the door. Last week, I made a little test with a water hose under low pressure. When I flood the outer lower part of the window, I get water leaking thru the seal and into the inside of the door.

Fortunately, the rig is going in today for another problem so this will be on the list.

There is no caulk or sealer on the door glass.

Don't know but I do know it leaks and 3 other rigs with similar doors did not. I dropped it at the dealer yesterday and that was one thing on the list.

I just replaced my door window with a stained glass window... I sealed between the edges of the stained glass and window frame with clear silicon sealant. It will peal off easy enough and fills in the little holes you can find on the edges..

If this glass in an oem door does not have a gasket of some sort, how do they seal? Does the plastic trim just fit tightly enough that it seals?

YUP. Just like all the rest of the windows in the trailer.

Picked it up today. Their fix was to put clear silicone on inside and outside between the glass and the black frame.
Looks good.
