Thanks so much for the very detailed info.
I'm sure others will appreciate it also.
Hopefully not too many need it LOL!
Unfortunately, many double pane wing windows collect water.
Age plus vibration causes the double pane wing window gasket to ever so slightly, loosen.
Then when the sun hits that glass, it creates a small air pressure, that slowly leaks out.
Then at night time, that presuure becomes a small vacuum. That sucks in the high humidity cooler air, which of course contains more moisture. In time then, a large collection of water accumulates, as you have seen happen to your trailer.
A fix that usually works, is seal the double pane wing windows from the outside with a coating of Vulkem sealer, that totally covers the gray gasket.
You can do that with your wing windows.
If done before any water accumulates, then most likely it will never happen.
Also, after all the water is gone, shoot some glass cleaner into one of the holes. That usually will clear the stain thats on the inside of the glass, if done enough times.
Then, you can seal the two holes or just leave them alone, just in case.
Lastly, check out your rigging to minimize as much transfered vibration that you can.
Lack of proper running gear balance can also contribute to the double pane glass wing windows collecting water.
You might also check for missing rivets that hold the shell to the "front steel plate". Those rivets are near the bottom of the sheet metal panel that's below the front window.
