Leak Found! Have a question.
Sorry for the long post.-So we purchased our 2016 CAF25SE Cruiser Aire 5er last May so its still under the year warranty. As some of you might remember we had to have the awning and brackets replaced as soon as we got it because Crossroads put the wrong one on and the awning was coming down over the kitchen slide when out. Crossroads shipped us the new awning and brackets last May and they paid for the new one to be installed at Camping World. So, right after that we went camping and found water had got in and was in the open bottom area below the closet on the left as soon as you come in the door. We keep our shoes in the opening. Then I found the back window wasn't latched and was open about an inch so I chalked it up to that. I don't remember it raining any other time we went camping last summer. And we keep the camper in our 24X36 building when not being used. So, prepping for our up coming trip we took the camper out of our building and parked it in the driveway. This evening we received a down pour and it rained for about an hour. After, I went out just to check as I always do and there was about 1/4" of water in the bottom of the open closet. After getting the water up and checking to make sure the back window wasn't open again; which it wasn't. Later it started raining again and I went back out to the camper and found water was seaping in at the base of the wall where it meets the floor. So now Im thinking the screws that hold on the awning bracket or where the wire for the power awning comes in from outside isn't caulked good. So, my question is Im wondering what is in the wall where the leak is? Is it insulating or some type of foam. Im worried that mold might set up now. Should I have the closet taken down and the wall paneling removed to check for mold? Im hoping to get it back to have it checked before we leave next Tuesday. Im thinking they probably can't and I might have to pull all the screws out and recaulk with RV caulking and recaulk the wire access also if they can't. In the mean time we put the 5er back in the building due to more rain tonight and tomorrow. All opinions are appreciated.
