( who said they learned something and would check all the other units on the lot) and they ordered enough. plugs for the windows, which I siliconed and installed myself.
The reason for top and bottom weep holes is so the window can be used in either direction, but without the holes on the top being sealed in a heavy rain water can /will run into the hole and run down the window.
Thanks for the info. I will have to double check it. I thought when i looked at the windows they were all siliconed...will be worth a double check.

I would avoid sillycone for a variety of reasons. My preference when sealing up the RV is Geocel Pro RV sealant.
