I just ordered 3-96" sections from Fisheries Supply.

Here are installations instructions if you don't have them.

I know this is an old post and hopefully you have resolved the problem , which I believe is condensation due to your airconditioning (being always on ) meeting warm and VERY saturated outside air during rainy weather conditions. Whaddaya think??

window leak

The odd thing about this leak is it is from the top of the sliding glass half of the window unit (not the fixed glass).* It is like the water is getting*over top of the glass panel and running down the inside surface and dripping on the bed. (We have a plastic box lid under the window to catch any drips so the mattress doesn't get wet) I have new caulk at the*window*exterior wood*casing, top sides and bottom so I don't think it is leaking at that point.* Somehow it is getting over the glass.* I am thinking I need to change the weatherstrip.* Any help will be appreciated.* I saw that timjet had a window leak but I don't know what became of that.* When it rains here in Florida it is a major event!!!!

Thanks all,

Hi Bob- Just bought an IG36 1980. Windows leaking over the top of the track as water runs off coach top. Bottom leaks because drain holes are plugged with the old track fuzzy stuff disintegrating. Trying to decide what to do in way of replacement. Probably Beckson tracks. Good luck!

A simple fix would be to put acrylic or polycarbonite panes over the outside wood frames as in storm window design. that way you could seal the window and get better a/c insulation of the glass areas at a fraction of the cost of trying to take the teak frames apart without damaging them.
