Montana 3820fk Front Cap Leak

We have the front window on our Montana. Every time it rains we end up with up to a half gallon of water in the well of that window. There are no water streaks to let us know where it's coming from. We've had it in twice to get it fixed and both looked at the roof, one of them put some sealant around the roof antenna but nothing has worked. This leak concerns us as we are worried about the structure of the unit caused but the volume of water that accumulates. Has anyone had this problem and can offer information on the cause or fix?

We got a small chip last trip and I had Safe- Lite come and repair.
I pointed out to the glass guy how the rubber molding was starting to gap at the top. He then showed me that the molding didn’t hold the glass in its just a dress up for the edge. When he pulled it out water drained from it, he said that’s what it’s supposed to do. Of course I asked what holds the glass and he had a used windshield and showed me the adhesive used. So possibly your front glass has a gap in the adhesive seal around it?

We're looking at a 3810/3811 and the front window is a concern. Personally, I would rather it just be the solid front cap. Don't need that window anyway and in CG it will only be overlooking the other RVs and the road traffic in the CG... boring. Plus its single pane glass so you have a potential condensation issue. Be gone.
