Leak Advice

We have a 2012 25' FB Flying Cloud. I washed the trailer and the next morning found a huge wine colored stain on the passenger side forward window curtain. Red droplets were coming from the center of the curved section of the top window molding.

Hopefully, someone can tell me if this is just a caulk failure on the exterior or something worse and more importantly how to tell. Then the next question is how do I fix it?

Thanks for any advice and help!!

Have you looked at the caulk on the roof in that area? I also have a 2012 and my caulk was cracked in many parts of the roof this year. I had the whole roof recaulked at my local dealer. I am afraid that the caulk Airstream uses is just not very good. Airstream and the dealer say to inspect it every couple of years and that 4 years is a very good performance. Upsets me because I am from cruising sailboats and caulk lasted 20 years.
