I have a 2014 37F Adventurer that appears to have a leak in the same area.
There is a gap between the cap and the channel that holds the rubber trim piece.
It hasn't been tested in a prolong or heavy rain yet although I did hosed down the front cap and windshield. Putting tape over the top of Reveal molding should stop the leak which i'm thinking of doing anyway in addition to fix by Lazy Days. Here's what they did per their writeup:
"Inspected one piece glue in windshield and found water leak at top d/s and center of windshield, found screw holding aluminum reveal molding carrier rusted at d/s top causing leak, removed d/s interior and exterior a-pillars then removed reveal molding across top of windshield, found urethane used to seal top of windshield separating from pinchweld, found multiple gaps in sealant used to bond top of cap to pinchweld above carrier, carefully removed urethane above windshield and sealant above carrier, removed rusted upper d/s carrier screw then repaired and primed small section of surface rust, cleaned body and glass then masked off both, sealed above windshield and carrier with urethane then removed tape, installed new carrier screw then sealed with urethane, reinstalled reveal molding and interior/exterior a-pillars. Glass Shop $255.00"
This is the problem with the reveal molding. Water runs down over the cap seeps into the top of the molding. Because the molding fits tightly into the aluminum carrier the water doesn't leak out the bottom but rather collects/fills up into the space between the top of the carrier and the bottom of cap. Any voids or cracks in the urethane will cause the water to leak into cab collect on the metal shelving and spilling down onto the front
The first time I encountered a leak it was under warranty and I took it to Forest City. The appointment was 3 months away. I put a piece of blue masking tape over the top of the reveal molding and never a leak. Had plenty of rain in that three months.
