New to me

Hello, I just bought a used 2020 View 24D. Nice model full body paint diesel generator dual Payne windows. Since Iíve been driving it, I have had water leaking from the upper center console where the cab lights are just by the rearview mirror. Only happens when I turn. Been on the roof donít see any obvious spots. Looks sealed. Could it be from around the window. I know that leaks can come from anywhere and head to the low point. Any suggestions would be great.

Greetings bigalantia,
Inspect your roof and clean any suspect area (with rubbing alcohol) which might be leaking then reseal with the official product:
Welcome to the forum.
P.S. one of the clearance lights might have lost its seal; pull the lens and check carefully

Thanks. I did look at cab marker lights and it didnít seem like they caulked under them.

I tend to suspect lights before windows with rubber seals but either?
Lights seem to start out with rubber type seals that get dry and brittle, so I try to go a different way with them.
I take them off and then "think like a raindrop" for how to seal them better. When working on a vertical, I think of water running down hill so try to make a U shape over the top side and leave a small gap at the bottom where any that DOES get in can also run out to avoid filling the space and flowing to the inside.
I only want to do this once, so I go double/triple if it looks right! I make the U, then look at how water might follow the wires in and may add caulk/sealer to avoid that and finally after putting the light back on, I do a final, really small, seal line around the outside except for the small drain spot on the bottom. But I may change that if the light lays flat enough that driving in rain might force water in at the gap for draining!

Belt, suspenders, and keep a hand on things to make sure?
YUP! I'm lazy enough to only want to do it once!
Why no RV year, make and floorplan on MY signature as we suggest for others?
I currently DO NOT have one!
