The last two times I went to check on my camper there has been water in the storage in the front. I have to admit I did not dry it up last time, but today there was still some in it.

There was not much, but enough to tell that it was in there and to get my gloves soaking wet. I am trying to figure out where it came from.

Is it possible that the storage door was not sealed all the way or that the roofline is not sealed up all the way and it is leaking into the walls. I am not sure what it could be.

I give the roof leak option, because when I look at the top of the opening for the storage unit, where the trim piece is. I can see some scrap piece of insulation sticking out. Which is wet. It could be very easy for standing water in the door trim to cause this to get wet, but what about the gloves in the middle of the storage ? I went inside and looked in the general area where it would be leaking down the walls and did not see any interior damage.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated ! Anyone know what Crossroads recommends to reseal the seams of the fiberglass ?!?!

Thanks
SAM

It sounds like some thing the dealer should look at. Dicor is the sealant to use at the roof.

I have what they use at the factory, in white it is Silaprene Royal Seal 1000 and clear is Geocel 2300 MHRV Vehicle Body Sealant. They clean the areas with Auto Prep Dirt and Wax Remover.



My front compartment was leaking and they sealed around the outside and the door corners. One of the tech's crawled inside and they sprayed wateraround the outside door. Before they sealed it, water was just running in.

No I don't. They gave it to me at the factory and told me this is what to use.

Hahn Systems, 800-686-0502, in Elkhart who sells it for $3.48 a tube. This is where Smokeman GRP and I bought the tubes we have.

I had a water problem in one of our storage units and it turned out to be the bathtub drain leaking. *Fixed that and no more water. *Where's your bathroom or kitchen sink drain?

Neither the kitchen or tub are near it. I forgot there is a window above it too, I am going to check that also.
