I was wondering if installing an "eyebrow" made of aluminum above the window would help to direct the water away from the window and subsequently help with my leak problem. I know these were used on the older Airstreams and they are available at my local RV dealer. Are there any other solutions? Would I be doing a "no no" if I did this?
Your correct. Why ruin the looks of the trailer.
This info has been posted before, but I can't find it.
Get some clear "silicone sealer."
Make sure the hinge area is clean.
With the window closed, inject some silicone sealer at the pivot point of the hinge.
After a few minutes, open the window completely.
After another few minutes, close the window.
Repeat that operation, so that the sealer spreads itself thru the hinge area.
DO NOT ALLOW THE SEALER TO SET WITH THE WINDOW OPEN OR CLOSED.
You will be sealing the gap within the hinge by coating both side of the hinge, "internally."
Don't be stingy with the sealer.
Remove the exterior part of the sealer after it sets up.
This procedure has worked since 1966
