Leak in front window.

My front window track fills with water during a rain. I just used Captain Tullies crack seal on all the rivets but noticed that there are several holes above the window (from former screws?) where the water may be coming in. What is a good product to fill those holes with?

Are you missing any AIRSTREAM letters? Shouldn't be any random holes.

I would fill the holes with Parabond or Vulkem.

Those holes may have been from a front window rockguard.

You can install Olympic rivets in those holes, with a little sealer on the backside of the rivet head.

That would not be as obvious as spots of sealer.

can you use a rivet? There was a hole in my coach that the PO covered with a small aluminum plate and a couple of rivets. It looks like a patch but isn't obnoxious. vulkem would be my 2nd choice.

Be careful. We had the same thing and had Airstream fix the leak. We just took our unit in a few weeks ago to get the dinette area redone and they found major damage under one of the seats in the dinette area where it had been leaking for quite some time.

If you are able to fill the holes first and then apply a small amount of sealant on each rivet or screw, that might take care of it. Never use an excessive amount of sealant both for looks and easier tracking if the leaks continue. I would use silver Ten-X or similar
