    Long story short ,, i got back from my trip the 25th and the MH has been outside the last three days ,, anyway since it rained all day yesterday i could not clean it up and put it in it's garage,, so today i rewinterized it and washed it ,, after i did all that i put it back in the garage ,, did a little walk thru to see what we could take out agian for the winter ,, anyway ,, the cabinet in my living room a was full of water :eek: ,, i took all the stuff out ,, and found a leak where the front piece meets the main area ,, had to tear out the cabinet and part of the trim to find where this liquid stuff was coming in ,, anyway i found a gap in the trim piece ,, (i just sealed all this last summer) but there it was about the size of a pencil ,, i guess that's what u get when the MH is in a garage ,, u don't see any leaks ,, well this is the first one for me ,, and i hope that it is fixed ,, i think i'll let it set out more often ,, funny thing is ,, we got rain at the beach ,, but did not see any signs of leaks ,, but it sure showed up yesterday ,, but we did get 3 inches of hard rain ,, so i hope i can join the had a leak there club ;) :laugh: :laugh: :cool:

    Beach rain is different than mountain rain, did you not know that? You can get a TAN in beach rain. JK
    Glad you found it and got it fixed

    Do not tell us that he got too much sun in his eyes or sunscreen while he was working on his tan and could not see where he was going? JK

    Notice the strange silence from 730. Maybe there's more to the story. Could Chelse have hit the nail on the head? :eek: Do you think 730 will ever tell? ;)

    Re: can i join the club

    Well i was bored today and decided to ck into this leak even further ,, so i took out the wall paneling next to the window and cabinet ,, also took out the cieling section near the cabinet ,, i found ,, THERE IS NO INSULATION ,, yes all i have is the stuff that is sprayed on the walls ,, the coach is warm in the winter and cool in the summer ,, but all the new coaches i have worked on have the pink stuff down in the walls and in the cieling ,, plus the spray on stuff ,, i contacted Tiffin ,, via email ,, and still am waiting to see what they say ,, has anyone else scene this kinda stuff ,, ,, the good side is ,, i won't have to replace insulation that got wet ;) :approve: :laugh:

    well my leak came back ,, and no i was not on the roof ,, working on the tan ,, and no i did not forget where the bathroom was ,,, but i did get a kick out of those post ,, anyway it rained last night ,, and there was the leak again ,, so went back on the roof ,, and i found a place that i sealed ,, was mushy ,, so i stripped all the cualking and stuff off ,, and i found water under all that stuff .. yes it was wet ,,, it was where the roof and the front cap meet ,, and yes there was a gap in it ,,, so i i cleaned back the section about 6 inches ,, and then dried it out ,, and then filled the sucker full of sealent ,, now when it drys i'll go back over it with the elastmere stuff and double seal it ,, but that is after i make sure that i got it :) :)
    but as of now i'm not saying it is fixed ,, until the fat lady sings :laugh: :laugh:

    Our 5th wheel started leaking (windows/radio antenna/stove vent) when it was about 6/7 years old. The water was running down the inside walls from the antenna and shorting/tripping the GFCI circuit Turned out the silicon sealant was drying out and shrinking. I removed all the old sealant and applied new silicone. So far so good. However, it's probably time to do it all over again. :(
