Hi, i installed a brand new door with a window last year and somehow, condensation form on the outside of the window frame, basically in between the door. Water dropplets make their way around the window frame and once in while those droplets make it inside the house at the bottom of the window.

It is not due to rain water infiltration as the outside it perfectly sealed with caulking, it seems like a condensation problem.

Anyone know how to address that?

On the pictures you can see the dropplets on the top.

Thanks a lot!

Where on the planet are you?
Reason I ask is that looks like plastic walls and really thin plastic door jambs, something I've never seen in the US even in travel trailers or even mobile homes, there's nothing there to even attach the molding to.
Got a picture of the outside?
What's that threaded hole looking thing?

Thx but It is not leaking from the top from the outside as I made sure there is a nice exterior window clear silicon joint all around the window and those dropplets are still forming. The "sweating" or water dropplets form all around the the window in tiny dropplets just like condensation as you can tell from this picture from the lower right side.

I am wondering if it is an air circulation issue in my house or something.

If it is cold enough outside and the air in the interior is warm and moist enough, condensation can surely happen there as that is directly thermally bridged to the exterior.

Fill that gap with some foam backer rod and put the trim back on and you will be all set.
