Help - Window Leaks - '76 Argosy

I have a 76 Argosy MH. It rained hard last night and I have some leaks. I traced the leak to under the window in the exact center. I just replaced the schelegle and outside trim. I don't understand where the water could be coming from. (This happened before I did anything to the window)

With this window design can water come in from the top and wrap around to the bottom middle? Could it be the post in the middle holding the glass. Rivet is in there. I do have some issues with calk at the top of the window cracking. Could this be it? I don't feel water on the sides of the window or the bottom corners.

I think I have 3-4 windows like this. There is a crack in the Vlukem seal due to age and vibration.

thanks

Did you put the slots in the schlegal before you installed the weep hole covers?

If not, there's the "leaks".

I replaced the schlegle in my window and it still leaked until I replaced the gasket on the outside of the window . Also I had a window I thought was leaking but it was from one of the roof vents .The water was running down inside the skin and coming out along the window frame.

thanks, I'll look into that. Did you put calk at the edges where the vertical and horizontal trim meet?

Not sure what you mean about vertical and horizontal trim. Use Vulcum or trempro not caulk.

I meant the gasket on the outside of the window. Are you talking about the vertical and horizontal trim, or the gray window seal?

There are two different gray motor home window seals.

One is for the vertical bar and the other is the trim seal, which goes around the top, the rear side and the bottom.
