I will except all suggestions bad or good. I have a 2002 Endeavor with a leak at the drivers window somewhere, I can see where the panal is buckled a little under the window where the transmission shifter and other controls are, the buckel is above the controls the water I think is running down and to the back of the drivers seat down to the floor, after a rain I can feel where it has leaked on the floor, you have to look real close to see where the panal has buckled, I have sprayed water on the window for a period of 10 minutes with no leak but when it rains it will leak, the top has been re- caulked about a week ago the windor was re sealed about two years ago, no leak at that time, I have cleaned the weep holes out. Will a Auto Glass shop be able to take this window out and re-seal. Thanks for all replys, about time to hit the road drive safe. Roy

ROYBUCK....DO you have a slide directly behind the driver's seat? If so, I had a similar leak in my Diplomat. My floor was constantly wet at the base of the control panel under the driver's window and just behind it. I also thought it was the window, but it wasn't. You're buckling could be from water wicking up the wall.
After several months (waiting for it to rain hard enough) I tried a couple of things. First, I jacked the coach high in the front when it rain and the water stopped. Next I put the slide out and forced towels into the vertical joint/opening of the slide between the slide and coach wall. I found the towels were getting wet first, before reaching the floor. I eventually discovered that the water was entering at the rearward edge of the slide (at the top), running along the top of the slide and into a hole on top of the slide ("C" channel frame) and then down the front edge of the slide on the interior side.
I may not have painted a picture of where mine was coming in, but if you lift the front of the coach and it stops or you insert the towels between the front edge and slide and it stops, PM me and we can further discuss the fix.

Don, I had a leak at the slide it was comeing in at the top of the slide and running down the end of the slide at the back of the drivers seat, I thought this is where it was comeing from I fixed the leak on the slide, but still have the leak behind the drivers seat, there is no indication of any water comeing in on the wall or in the cabinet above the drivers seat, if you look at the wall where it is leaking the wall will not indicated that it is leaking the only way you can tell is feel of the carpet. I guess this is my trouble month had a leak on the slide a leak at the rear A/C, had a leaking tire slow leak, I think I have all of them frixed, but the window leak has got the best of me, guess I will need to take it to a dealer. Thanks
I had a leak in the '04 HR Imperial which showed up as water dripping just above the driver's window. The previous owner had siliconed some of the interior trim pieces, but of course, that had no effect. I bought the coach used from a dealer, and they and repaired all the interior damage and recovered the walls where the wall covering was loose, but couldn't find the leak.
I searched for that leak for a long time before discovering that it was coming in at the roof mounted TV antenna. The factory had caulked that antenna while it was in the down position, and there was no caulk under the area which was covered by one of the elevating members. After caulking, no more leaks.
Since the roof was built up with styrofoam, the water could move for quite a distance before finding its way to the inside. In looking for the source of any leak, you have to be aware that water can travel in the roof structure for quite a distance. In my case, the inside leak point was 4 feet from the outside source.
