Leak in brand new cougar window

Hey all, just got home from picking up a new 2021 34tsb. I went over 500 miles to get it and when I got home I noticed that water was leaking from under the window. Strange thing is the seal around the window was fine, but it was dripping from the interior wood trim. I circled in yellow on the pic. I took the trim off and saw water between the fiber glass and insulation but canít tell where itís getting in. Any suggestions? Iím going to follow up with keystone tomorrow but I assume it will be months before they can get it in.

I canít tell by the pictures, how is the window installed? If itís like all RV windows that use a ring inside with screws, I would suspect the flange seal wasnít installed properly.

The window doesnít seem to be an issue. Iíd think Iíd see water on the inside of it. Iím wondering if the seal is bad where the led strip lights go through. I took the wood frame off the inside and can see where the water was running down the inside.

If itís where the wiring comes through the front cap, I would simply seal it up and carry on. That way youíll know itís done correctly and didnít have to wait weeks/months.

Iím hoping thatís what it is. There is silicone on it already, but Iíll check it out in more detail when it dries out.

I can't find it but I remember reading that there was a problem with the sealing of the yellow LED lights causing leaks around the window. I would make sure the upper LED on that side of the window is sealed.

I had same problem, but was a leak coming from the USB port and onto bed and millwork. Water came from yellow LED lights from above window. The hole where the wire connects to the light was not caulked correctly and water followed wires down to the port. I caulked it up and I have since had no problem.
