I have a 2010 Zinger zt19rd. I've noticed since we've been having regular rainfall that when I open the entry door...after it's been raining, that water drips out of the bottom of the door at the "open side"...not a lot but enough for me to be a little concerned. Looking at the door it seems that there are only 2 points of entry, the seam at the very bottom of the door...water could run down the door and into the seam, or somewhere around the door glass. I think that any water intrusion at the seams at top and left and right sides of the door would be minimal if anything and more likely to happen when on the road. This trailer is parked. On the one hand, I'm glad the water is running out, but I'm wondering if it could cause damage in the long run....anyone else experience this or have a solution?
Thanks.

Probably entering at the window. If it is like my Cruiser, I removed the plastic frame and repainted it (it had yellowed) The window was not sealed, just "squeezed" between the plastic frame. The door is filled with Styrofoam insulation. It would be easy to remove the outside plastic and seal with a caulking that won't melt the Styrofoam.

Thanks Stan. I think I'll try re-sealing the window as a start....if that doesn't stop the dripping I'll have to go further. On my trailer, the screws holding the frame go in from the inside of the door.....can you tell me which side the glass will "fall out" of? I want to be careful as I remove the frames to be sure I don't break the glass in the process. Will a good grade of regular silicone work without melting the Styrofoam.

Thanks much.

The window is on the outside and yes you need to hold the glass from falling. Two people may help. I believe silicone is what I used but read the instructions on the tube. It's pretty simple once you take it apart.
