Thats a good point about value that I didnt consider. However this is not a high dollar TT either. And one I plan to keep for a while. I dont think I would let that affect my decision in this instance. however I also dont plan to do this work myself. and I do want to be conscious of how much money I dump into this TT and what a change like this might bring with it that I didnt consider, like the resale value.
To give a bit more history on this, I just bought it in August. after a week of owning it, while parked in my backyard, we got a rainstorm and I found a drop of water on the inside front bed, right in the center of teh window. water was dropping from a seam in seal right at the top of the window. At that point I used proflex geocell all around the camper at every window, light, anything that would would be a potential leak point. however at the front window, I went completely around it with proflex, on teh outside edge of teh window seam. but only touched up a few places on the inside seam of the window seal.
I either (A) missed the leaking point, (B) its a large opening that wasnt filled in as I went over it or (C) its not the window and its leaking at a seam in the corrugated metal siding. I really think its the window and I either missed it or didnt get it.
I hate just throwing more proflex at it. but maybe thats the best solution, just caulk the entire front window, outside edge/inside edge, all seams through out it. Im just concerned about how this might look, as the caulking isnt a pretty sight and the more I put up there the uglier it gets. which makes me consider the option of removing the window altogether. we dont like this particular window, dont use it, and I think it just lends itself to issues like what we have here.
enough rambling...I'd like to hear if anyone has done this or something like it.
