Leak in cab of 2017 2401W

When I picked up our two month old 2401W today I checked top make sure it was dry. Everything looked good. The first time I stopped water came pouring out from the plastic surrounding the windshield. This was a significant amount of water. Suggestions? Is it safe to walk on the roof? Any precautions I need to take?

Go look in Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis instead of Solera. A lot of recent activity about this.

It is safe to walk on the roof. Do it quite often. I usually crawl since I am not so steady on my feet anymore and use a good set of knee pads(not the hard slippery kind). Just use normal safety precautions to insure you don't fall off.

When I first got my unit I had a small amount of water intruding through the clearance lights while driving. I pulled them off and resealed behind the mounting plate and completely sealed the wire passages. No more problems.

At the end of this post I talk about my cab leak issue. What have you done to customize your MBS 2400 series motor home
