Front windows on Escape trailers

I was just wondering if any Escape owners have had problems with the opening window behind the rock gueard. Has anyone had leakage problems here?
Thanks, Al

Al, are you referring to the new front window? I am not sure if it has really had much of a chance to get put to a test yet. The rock guard is integral with the window, and is supposed to seal well, and outperform the previous one.

And the new front window with the integral rock guard will not be an opening window, if I remember correctly from the announcement on the website.

Correct.
Front window won't open, but the windows either side of it at the front will, to my recollection.

Front window on my 17B does open. Haven't had any issues with it.

My window opens and does let in a lot of water driving in a hard rain. Someday I will fix the "seal" around the riock guard.

Re: Front windows on Escape trailers

Have you pinpointed where it is leaking?
