Hi Bob

I would take a paper clip and check/clean out the drain holes. We used to do warranty work for a large US window and door manufacturer and you wouldn't believe the stuff I cleaned out of drain holes.

Cheers
Doug

Hi Gae,
I am kind of late responding to your post but I thought I would pass this unto you. Now this is just my experience with trying to sleep with my head toward the driver side of our Escape 19 trailer. The number one thing that I have against sleeping this way is amount of noise that comes from the air-conditioner. It seem to me the noise and vibration travels right down the refrigerator wall making it almost impossible to sleep.

Thanks for the input, Mark. We decided to sleep with our heads on the driver's side, but arranged some things so that we could switch back to the passenger side, if needed. We'll see in the first night out!

If it ever warms up I'll give it a shot, thanks. I was tempted to try drilling a couple more holes toward the middle of the window, but chickened out.

Hi Bob I would drill away, you can never have to many drain holes. Sometimes as the outside rubber seal/trim shrinks back with time it is possible that more water will get in then can get out with the existing drain holes. Just make sure you drill in the same channel that the factory drain holes are in.

Cheers
Doug
