No water today in the cab despite torrential rains! Thank God. Still taking it in to get it checked on Saturday since we've had water in the storage bin. Any way to get the shadow that the water left on the bottom of the cab mattress?

Went thru a bad storm last night. Wind and rain were really blowing. Took the opportunity to check the inside and all is dry. Did a good check of over bunk, slides, windows, etc. all dry.
In morning, Checked all storage compartments and all dry. Did find the RTV sealant in the large door compartment, just inside the door where the lip if the plastic bottom meets the sidewall at the bottom of the door is not adhering. I can see the ground in about a 1/8" gap. Will strip, clean and redo the seal. I will check all of these areas close. This could be the entry point for your water in basement.
This is very minor and a non issue for me.

Meet a C owner who was enjoying another brand that he has had it for eight months state that he was still working out the issues with his dealer. So far, I have no need to make that statement. We are well pleased with our 3170DS. We find it comfortable and have gotten of good commits on its looks. Always good to here..

Glad to hear it. Hopeful this is the last of it for us. We love the layout, especially. And glad we switched from the TT to the Class C.

Getting rid of the water shadow:

Years ago I loaned a mattress from our pop-up to a friend in a tent. It rained, his tent leaked, and the mattress got wet and had a water mark. I just hosed off the entire mattress and let it dry in the sun in the driveway. That made the entire mattress look that same. After this, there was no difference in color between it and the other mattress. The water mark was probably just residue from the textile manufacturing process or color from the foam. Wetting it all over probably washed some of the residue out.

Or put the residue in the rest of the mattress. Either way....problem solved. Good idea.
