Nasty rain storm last night – little bit of hail too. Checked the TT interior afterwards and noticed some water directly below the kitchen and bedroom vents. That’s odd because they were closed. Fired a big beam through the bug screens and couldn’t really see anything amiss but it was dark and it was getting late. Storm had moved on.
Went out this morning to have a better look and lo and behold, I could see daylight through the hinge end of the kitchen vent lid. The bedroom lid was even worse. Hail wasn’t bad – just pea sized stuff (small peas). These lids are OEM and are the Heng’s Industries variety. They’ve seen all but five seasons. They passed visual and were watertight in Jul when the roof was last cleaned. When I got them off it was apparent that the lid material was literally crumbling. The lid depicted was from the bedroom and what’s interesting about that is that it was in worse shape than the kitchen vent lid and the bedroom vent was rarely ever opened.
Anyway, check your vent lids and...
