Caulking Around '02 Safari Black Hehr Windows

I plan to caulk around the outside frame edge of the black Hehr windows on my 02 Safari. I plan to use black 221 Silkaflex.

In the past I have noticed that some SOB's do not apply caulk completely across the bottom edge of the frame. I assume that this is to allow drainage of any condensation in the frame. Should I seal the window frames all the way around or leave a un-caulked strip along the bottom edge of the frame.

Thanks for any help.

Bud

Just bumping this back up to see if anyone knows "Should I seal the window frames all the way around or leave a un-caulked strip along the bottom edge of the frame".

Thanks in advance for any insights or experience with this.

That depends on any possible present leaks.

If none from the windows, then seal the 2 sides and the top.
