Leaks

Sorry you haven't had any success with the positive pressure routine. I have done my own with a shop vac and found leaks in my tt that I couldn't find otherwise. Also found leaks in my neighbors kayak(another story).

I can't believe they didn't find anything. Air has to be coming out somewhere if you truly have positive pressure in your RV. Our local electric company even does this type of operation on homes to find outside air infiltration. Buttoned up my house real good after all the sealing they did. So the system does work "IF" done properly.

Were you there when they preformed the test?? It sometimes does take some patients when doing this as the bubbles don't sometimes show up right away. One that was very frustrating for me was the bat wing antenna leak. Couldn't find that one right away!!

Trust me the test works ONLY IF done right and with patients.

Again sorry you had bad luck............

Of course you do know "THEY" (RVs) all leak at one time or another.

Hi all, I don't know if this will help or if you want to put in this much work but here goes. I had a Winnebago awhile back and had a leak above both windshields, everything that we could think of was done, and we could not find the leak. finally one day when I got so mad I was ready to tear the top off, I found the leak. It was a wire that ran from back by the A/C unit. The water would come in travel along the wire and end up coming out above the windshields. I plugged the whole under the A/C where the wire came through and no more leaks, but the flustration was unbelievable.

waterleak

We just purchased a 2005 359 ts xl. Raining when we picked it up. No signs of any leakage until 50 miles later. Water ran down over the front of the TV when we slowed for traffic. Back to the dealer and they did the leak test and found no leaks in the roof but they did find that it was prepped for the sat rec. There is what appears to be a vent in the roof just behind the passenger seat. That is the access for the sat cabels and any water that gets into that goes into the roof and foam insulation then takes the path of least resistance and ens up who knows where. The tech applied sealent to plug the hole through the roof. I pulled the liner down in front of the tv enough to bow air from a huge shopvac through the foam for an entire day. Everything seems to be dried out. Also waiting for rain to see if the fix is in.

First off to FRF. Sorry to hear of your leak. Hopefully the dealer has found the culprit. One other place to check if it reoccurs is the wire boot where the cable up to the antenna runs. These rubber boots can crack and allow water to get in as well.
