Water tight 2013 SF32RL tested

We are camping in the Panhandle of Florida and went through one heck of a storm last night! Winds, heavy, heavy rain, lightning, etc...even had a tornado warning with an evacuation notice at 2:45am. The campground we're at, Arrowhead, has a small shelter/pavilion so we felt a little more secure there. Anyway, with all that heavy rain and with the strong winds driving it, we didn't have a single drop of water leak in the camper. I was amazed!!
Thought I'd share some positive results!

Just a question ...did you bring the front bed slide in during the monsoon rain? Or did the seals work like they state they do?

That's awesome. I'm glad nothing happened to you guys. When I purchased my TT from Lazy Days I had them test it in their rain bay and it passed with flying colors.

I saw that on the news with cars sitting in parking lots with water 1/2 way up the doors....YUK! I lived in Pensacola for several years and never had rain like that. glad you are safe and dry.

All the slides were out throughout the entire storm. The only thing we had brought in of course are the awnings. I thought for sure that we'd see some kind of leaking somewhere but nothing. Very impressed!

I'm glad to hear that everything is OK and your all safe. I'm also glad to hear you had no leaks... maybe I will have the same results when mine gets built next week. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.
