First, the gasket must be good, and installed correctly.
The hinges on all the 66, 67 and 68 windows, can leak.
But, the fix is easy, but takes a little time and patience.
Make sure the hinge are is completely dry.
When the window is closed, inject a bead of clear "silicone" sealer, into that hinge junction. In about 10 minutes, open the window for about 10 minutes. Then close the window for another 10 minutes.
Keep the open then closed movement in progress, until the silicone cures out.
The next day, remove the surplus sealer from the exterior of the window.
What you have done, is apply a coating of silicone sealer, to the inner part of the hinge.
That will take care of the water leaks, at least at the hinge.
This is the only place, that you ever dare use silicone sealer on the exterior of an Airstream.
