We found a problem with a leak was the awning rail was in 2 pieces and the joint was right above the access door for the refrigerator. I had to seal the joint and around the acess door. Don't know if this is your problem but just a suggestion.

Howard, make sure to check around all your roof vents and skylights. If you haven't already used it, I recommend Eternabond seal-sealing tape for all roof sealing needs. Once it's down you won't have to worry again. Dicor self leveling sealant is good for all roof sealing too. You can put the Eternabond right over sealant as long as it isn't silicone. The tape isn't cheap, but you only have to put it on once.

Our kitchen floor leak was coming from the refrigerator vent on the outside of the 5'er. The water would puddle and leak under the refrigerator and down onto the floor during heavy rains.

It turned out the vent door stop flange has a 2inch gap at the bottom for some unkown reason. This allowed the water to seep in. I took a piece of Duct tape and placed it over the gap. No more leak.

Hey folks... You are about to find out what fall in East Texas is really all about. The next 3 or 4 days are supposed to bright sun shiny and low 70s. Welcome to East Texas, we hope you enjoy your stay.

Glad you didn't get too severe of weather and you are both safe and sound.

Ya know. . . I had never looked at the campground review map until today. This will be quite helpful when planning trips. Good work!


I used eternabond on all my seams and vents. The best price I found is at bestmaterials.com where I got 50 feet of 4 inch wide for just under $54.00. I wish I had done the roof as soon as we bought the RV as we did have some water get in before I sealed everything. Water even leaked out of a plugin in the ceiling a couple feet from any vent or skylight. After "eternabonding" everything we have no more leaks.
