Well it stormed real bad last night in Pensacola and the wife and were at Blue Angel Campground and one window leaked from all the rain. I know I should not have any leaks but I feel fortunate that was the only leak. And has much and as hard as it rained it got a good leak check. I will get my ladder out today when I get off work and see if I can find where the leak is coming from.

I am just glad the DW and I decided to stay in the Redwood last night. If not the floor would have been soaked.

Which window was it? Do you have dual pane windows? We'll be staying at the Pensacola Beach RV Park tomorrow ourselves.

Yes have dual pane windows. It is R/H rear window, I put a small bead of clear sealant on the top and down both sides. Let dry and took the hose to it. No leaks. It rained again today and no leaks. Hopefully I got it. We are home now.
Got to get me some slide toppers put on though, had them on my last 5th wheel and I miss them. Had to get up there in the rain and sweep the slides off, was no fun. Other then that window leak I am very happy with my Redwood.

We just got out of a monsoon in Florida and the only windows that leaked were the emergency windows. It wasn't bad and was caused by the driving wind off the beach.

No excuse. The windows should not leak. Dave. Why continue to make excuses for the manfacture lack of quality control.

Because I'm reasonable.....I few ounces of water getting around a rubber seal of a emergency window, in unusual conditions has NOTHING to do with quality control. The wind was so strong that the Tiffin Bus had the slide topper ripped off. I guess that was Tiffin's fault? It's not a perfect world and these RV's go through some unusual conditions at times. I went all around my trailer looking at the slides....no leaks! I'm a happy camper

Lillyputz...I agree. If I had a contractor install new windows and they leaked, I'd surely be on the phone with the contractor. The manufacturers of RVs are well aware of the conditions to which their products are subjected to and the design and construction of their product should meet and exceed those conditions.

Dave - I concur. If a manufacturer designed everything to survive every eventuality, we as consumers couldn't afford the products. Selecting design criteria is a form of risk control, they select criteria that willexperienced most of the time.
We live in an eathquake zone and the building codes are designed for about the 100 yr quake. When a bigger quake arrives I expect to make an insurance claim, if the insurer survives. If buildings were built to survive a 200 or 300 yr quake we either couldn't afford them or homes would be a much smaller.
