I have a friend that is trying to make a semi trailer a house and her windows leak. The trailer has flooded once already. So does anyone have any ideas about how to build the house? Or do you know what books or places I can send her to for more information?
I thank you guys so much

Before I can make any recommendations, I'd very much like to know the setup, e.g., are the axles/tires removed and the frame has been dropped on grade? Is there a power drop and hook-up or how is it powered if at all? Trying to get a mental picture so I don't waste time recommending something that has already been accomplished.

Were the windows designed for a flat surface, while the van has horizontal ribs?

Take them out and seal them with auto windshield urethane. This is the adhesive that holds your auto windshield in place. Warning though it will be permanent. You'll never remove them again in one piece.
Don't waste your time with silicone. As things heat and cool or flex silicone will let go and leak.
Could build a roof that overhangs the sides of the trailer. So the water doesn't just run down the sides into the window.
