  • weep hole covers for 27-5L

    we have had enough air leaking through our weep holes - esp. the one to the right of the sink - to blow out a lighter..... wanting to get weep hole covers for all the windows but am uncertain what type/size/style is best. have any of you added these? did they help? can you suggest a brand/size? thanks much!!

    Could Google "Rv Window sash weep cover with your size" people say the size is spot on.
    I see packages of 10 are about $5

      I just purchased new weep hole covers for our 2008 25P from this place and they fit perfectly. Nice people and very good service.

          Is your trailer new or many years old? Have the windows always leaked air, or is this something new?

          Be cautious in covering / blocking the exterior window weep-holes. You may cure one issue, but cause another.

          Weep-holes serve a vital function and disrupting water exiting the holes, could cause future damage to the sill and/or wall.

          I would examine the window seals for air intrusion (enough to "blow out a lighter") first, before modifying the weep-holes.

            Use these and you are asking for trouble. If you block the water drainage, where is the water to go? Those drain holes are there for a reason.

              Some people’s thoughts on weep hole covers.
              “The weep hole cover helps keep road noise down, creates a suction that drains the water more efficiently from the window tracks, and keeps out wind and noise”
              ” Weep hole covers over weep holes, which still allow them to drain. Some think they help keep wind noise out, others think they simply look spiffier”

                  If one is in a motor home and driving down the road, weep hole covers may cut down road noise, but in a TT or 5th wheel does one care? They serve a purpose to allow moisture in window track from condensation to drain. Guess one can cover and then know they need to wipe out moisture in tracks as needed, which I think many do anyway. I think I do. I'll remind myself with upcoming trip. Then I'll give a report on "What would Smokey do" :-)

                      After owning our unit, I just use sunglasses to cover my weep holes.

                          I do the same. My eyes water sometimes now for no explainable reason. Guess it's a getting older thing? No unit required.

                            We used black electricians tape in the track in our old Nash. It did the trick.

                              OH, Thank you Linda. Back on subject! :-) So, could it be if you want to cover weep holes, you need to remember to take a small towel and wipe any moisture out of tracks, as needed. I believe I do anyway in AM's, if needed. Big deal! Bottom line is you do not want moisture going where it's not wanted. Weep holes are there for a reason, and purpose not to be ignored.
