Where are roof water leaks on Georgetowns

This survey is to find out where the most roof water leaks originate from.


So far I had a water leak on the windshields upper top rubber seal, passenger’s side.

None of the above. My Georgetown leak was where the coax from the satellite dish enters the roof. Not Forest River's fault, and an easy fix.

I had an identical leak as IGGY. While driving through a hard rain there would appear a few rain drops running down on the inside of the windshield on the copilots side. My inspection of the windshield rubber gasket on the outside revealed a possible area of water ingress (appeared to not be fully seated). I applied some caulk to the suspect area and thus far no more water has entered. Saga continues.

Yes but it's to late to add. Anyway this is stickly Georgetowns. A no leak is not necessary as most have no leaks. I just want to see where most happen so I and others can do some proactive maintenance before the damage.

You counting the days for the 4th of July adventure?
Have fun.

I had the same upper right corner windshield leak on my maiden voyage. I called Mike Burnes at Forest river and was told to stop by the factory which I did since we were going that way. The windshield was removed and resealed.Its been ok ever since. Stopping there was quite an experience.The water tank was filled with water,I was hooked to a 50 amp service and told to stay as long as I wanted.

Mine was in the right front corner of the roof where they leave a channel for the water to run off the roof.

No identifiable leaks so far, but when I was on the roof to seal the cracks in the Fiberglas roof, I noticed that all four corners were very poorly sealed by the factory. Given

The amount of water that flows over those areas I'm surprised that it wasn't leaking. I'd suggest everyone take a look at those areas to be sure they are waterproof.

We have to have more useres that have had their Georgetown for many years to jump in. I plan in the near future do some work on all 4 corners.
Not sure what I will use yet.
Elastimold tape 4" wide or 6" or non-levelling sealer.

Suggestions are always welcome here.

My 2000 360SS leaked around the front running lights and the cap-to-roof seam.

I used a length of 6" Eterna-Bond across the roof, and replaced and resealed the lights.

No problems after that.
