I brought home a 1972 27' Overlander last week. It is raining in Nor.Cal. and this a.m. noticed the the road side front wing window beginning to fill with water. I sealed all front window areas just a few days ago. What now. I have read most threads about drilling out small holes in bottom of window to alleviate the water. However, I need to find the source. Thoughts??????

My 92 limited was leaking in that area. My leak was coming in through the hinge screws that hold the solar shield/rock guard above the window.
I took each screw out individually and used Parbond, most rv stores have it.
You can squirt it up in the hole easily. That solved the problem.
I would have used vulcem but i didn't have a syringe. vulcem is very thick and hard to get into small areas less that 1/4 width.
