Water By Sink Under Window That Does not Open

Noticed both yesterday and today that there was a bit of water behind the sink under the non opening window. It wasn't a lot maybe a tsp or two (also a bit of water in the top drawer--amount is under a tsp) The window frame maybe seems a little damp in one corner..... NO drain holes to clean as there are none in this window...All the others are clear... All windows vents etc were just closed yesterday..... It has been raining a lot here....

We are all winterized but not covered and our usual cover is a breathable car cover...

Any ideas or hints and tips?

I would cover the window with plastic and seal with electrical tape, leave
it for a couple of days of rain. If no more water appears then remove the
plastic and see what happens if the water comes back then chances are
you need to re seal the window.

No wate rin there this morning...and it is a dry day for now, so I have taped a bag over the window.
The rain should return tomorrow, so I'll see what happens then..
Thanks

Hi Anna-Marie

We used to live in Cloverdale so I know you won't have to wait long for some rain.....

Re: Water By Sink Under Window That Does not Open

I think you are apt to get some condensation around the window frames. Particularly if the humidity is very high and the trailer is closed up with a cold morning. I see some on the walls of the shower stall in the early morning unless a vent is left open. If your experiment shows the problem is condensation you could try something like DAMP-RID when you are storing

It IS coming in somewhere along that window--we did the hose test today and can't tell exactly where it is coming in...
No condensation issues as we do run a "stor dry" unit all winter......
