Outdoor Entertainment Compartment

When I went to get the coach last week the dealer said that the stereo out there was bad and that he ordered a new one. I told him that as much as I liked Craig and Sharon's hospitality that I'd be going home the next day and would not travel back up there for the install so he sent it to me and I put it in, no problem.

Then I started to wash the coach and when I opened that compartment I noticed water had leaked in, probably why old stereo had failed.

Anyone else with this feature have this problem with water leaking in ?

I thought maybe wouldn't be a bad idea to install some sort of like a rubber shade of some sort to keep water from going on flat screen and stereo, besides trying to figure why its leaking in in the first place of course.

Joe,
I haven't looked at mine after washing it but now that you mention it, I noticed on FROG Bob's coach that there was a rubber flap that covered over the top edge of the compartment door. I guess I will need to check this out after my next wash.

Wouldn't some weather stripping take care of it?

Well I believe there is weather stripping there, I have to look to see if the hinges can be adjusted to pull it in some to make it pull in tighter to the weather stripping.

If the sides are wet when opening the door water will get inside. I have no problem with water intrusion after washing and drying mine.

Went outside last night and stuck a flashlight in the compartment, shut and latched the door and sure enough you could see a strip of light going across the top of the compartment door. Need to do some more investigation today in the day light. From what I can remember the door appears to have adjustment up and down but not to draw the door in. When shut it really looks like it could use to be brought in some towards the top as it is slightly sticking out beyond the coach wall a tad.

Had mine back to the factory a few weeks ago to have an issue handled and noticed that they had put a rubber flap across the top of my outside entertainment door. I wondered why and now I guess I know. I wasn't having any issues so it was just nice of them to do it.

Be glad to Joe, but I don't have the coach here right now. As soon as I can, I will.
