    Question weather stripping around door jamb not channeling water properly....

    Every time it rains or if I have water on the roof and I open my doors the arm rest and window controls get wet from water dripping from the weather stripping around the door jam. For some reason the water rolls over the weather stripping and not down it to drain down by the bottom of the jamb.

    For one I do worry about a few drops of water in the window control module on a regular basis. It could cause the module to short out.
    Secondly, it's annoying whipping water from the arm rest every time I open the the door.

    I feel.like there isn't a big enough channel in the rubber material. The lip on the edge is hardly raised. This is why it just rolls over it instead of down to the ground....

    Any thoughts???



    Thanks

    Dave

    The dealer looked at this problem today. They tell me there is nothing they can do. They said they also pulled another truck in off the lot to test it. When it has water on the roof it also has water dripping onto the door arm rest and seat when the door is opened.

    Any body else have this problem too???

    I have a easy solution, keep a good coat of wax on your truck, especially the roof!! I guarantee there will not be large bodies of water on your roof when you open your door. . .

    My new truck is doing the same, and it is ANNOYING! I'll be curious to see if there is a solution presented.

    I have told them about it again. They noted it in their system. If it continues I will go over their head.....
