Leaking A-frame

We just spent 6 great camping days in our A122BH traveling from CA to Baton Rouge La. It started raining heavily this afternoon and our A-fram is leaking badly. Cushions are soaked and water puddling on the floor and running under the air conditioner. No obvious dripping. Any one have similar leaking problems and solutions?

Many of us have had leakage at the skylights. Failure of the caulking/adhesive to hold a seal and also cracking of the actual rim area of the skylight.

Careful inspection of those areas and a water test should show you where the problems are.

Bad news for me is that the dealer replaced the large skylight for cracking, then resealed it again, and now it is cracked again. Now it's out of warranty.

For now, I am sealing it with 3M heavy duty tape.

Search on eternabond tape

and you'll read all our stories. Eternabond works, but must be applied on a clean, dry surface. All existing tape and crud must be removed before applying.

Good luck, and happy camping!
