Water in track of windows

We spend our maiden voyage in our 2012 330rlts in torrential rain last weekend. Wind and rain blowing. I noticing a small amount of water in the window tracks, could this be coming in thur the weep holes as my husband thinks? I will be watching this. Do I need to be concerned?

Very possible - I too have experienced what you talk about. There is a seam on my window frame as well that if I spray the hose really hard, a few drops come through -- been meaning to seal that up.

I would take a hose with a sprayer and spray it around your windows and see if you can simulate the "leak" and see where it was coming from.

One other possibility - it could have been condensation.

Chances are if it was wet weather that condensation was the problem.

You want to find the source, but no matter what don't seal up those weep holes! They are designed to allow water to escape. I do sometimes notice water in the tracks of windows that slide sideways vs crank open. It always drains out the weep holes and I dont think it's an issue.

That would probably be condensation running off the windows to the tracks.. now if it was running down the inside wall like on my TT that is a different story.
