It could be. If you don't drive for hours at a time it may not get to operating temperature. You live somewhere with frost so it will take longer for your truck to heat up. Leaking can be a sign of a bad WP. I would replace it, you certainly don't want your truck to over heat and warp something.
When you say it barely defrosts the window, is it because you haven't ran it to operating temp before you reach your destination? Is it because the blower is not working correctly?
