Ieaks in 2016 3010ds

After driving through a tremendous downpour I noticed several places where water got in the coach. Is this to be expected or do I have a problem? It was a lot of rain coming down in sheets.

You shouldn't have any leaking anywhere. Where was it leaking?

Make sure the slide is all the way in and the seal didn't pull away from the side.

If you have the ability to get on the roof make sure there hasn't been any caulk along the cap seam that has pulled away.

Joshua - in reference to the roof - on the new Forrester and Sunseeker do you guys put a steel backer underneath where the cap Transition screws into to give them a little more bite ? I thought I read that somewhere and I just wanted to clarify it with someone who works at the factory - because if the steel backer does not fix the caulk breaking problem I will have to be up on my roof to check it more often lol

I had the same problems on my 3010DS
Took 4 trips to 2 different dealers until it was fixed. I found the problem myself by running water on top iof the slides and finally got it to leak. Finally was found that we had to have the seams on the top of the slides sealed. It was resealed with esterbond tape. No leaks since.

I can try that. But it turns out that part of my problem might be the bottle of wine that blew up. Found that while cleaning up the mess. Thought it was awful sticky rainwater.
