How do you stop wind blown rain from comming in?
I don't think it's possible.
Close the window.

I find cracking a window on the leeward side of the trailer, combined with the ceiling fan on low give us lots of fresh air. It could be different in other climates, but I find when it is raining, we are rarely in need of much venting.

Max vents are good for stopping rain coming in and still letting air in.

Gee, I put ours right around the window (the three sides of course not the bottom) but hope that we can have the windows just cranked open a little, especially on the awning side as that's the way we have our heads...

Although no amount of gutters would have helped with the storm we had here today...
