Leak between glass on window

on my 72 AS, the front left window was filling up with water after a rain shower. I assumed it was coming in at the top of window. I have meticulously cleaned and put vulkem around the window after the water drained out the bottom between the outer glass and frame. After a rain shower this week, I noticed about 1/4 inch of water between the inner and outer glass.

Could the water becoming from the roof vent and traveling down the frame into the window?

I just don't know how water can get between the inner and outer glass but not inside. The inside of the AS is dry. (for now!)

I have a new fan to install, so I will be on top of the trailer this weekend.

I've got a small leak on my rear window that runs down the bug screen. When I wash the Airstream it doesn't occur so I'm thinking it takes some time to see the run. I'm thinking it's not the window but maybe higher up too. If there are clearance lights above that could be a source or a rivet. Capt Tolleys for the rivets and Parbond around the clearance light housings. If it still leaks maybe a pressure test will reveal the source.

I've got the same rear window leak as KJ. It has leaked since new. Water comes in down the screen. In the middle of the window. When it rains I leave a towel on the counter to absorb the water. Doesn't happen when washing. Everything is sealed and the 39 year old mystery continues.
