Thanks 360True. I received a call from the shop yesterday regarding the leak. It is at Dick Gores RV in Jacksonville, FL. He said they could not find the leak. I explained to him exactly how I was able to make water drip from the inside of the cap. I found the air conditioner condensation drained onto the roof and into the roof gutter over the driver side door. Then water drips out of the corner of the cap. No word back yet. The tip on your post may be needed!

Inside the overhead stowage stayed dry, but water sloshed all along the top of the windshield and the doors...the doors were closed tight. When I moved it, I could hear water running somewhere around the cab drivers seat. Inspection indicated no obvious breaks in the seal of the overhead chassis and the top of the cab, and it is almost completely dry there from the overhang. Right now, I am stymied as to where this water is coming from. It is currently tarped to keep further water from getting in, but I need to get this resolved asap. Please help if you have any information.

Thank you,

Jon

11/10. Day 12 out of 38 days of ownership, without use of my RV. The repair shop Dick Gore's in Jacksonville had my RV for 6 days and couldn't find a leak until Mike Jankowski authorized a sealtech leak test to be done. They tell me they found two small leaks over the driver side door and repaired them. I can't see any new caulking however. I picked the RV up and delivered it to Mercedes-Benz who then had to look into the airbag light which came on after the leak. MB had the vehicle until yesterday stating it was a loose connection in the wiring. They went to deliver the RV to me asking didn't I tell them the leak was fixed and then the service rep reported that when he moved the vehicle he got saturated and the RV is pouring down water all over him and the cab! It is now soaking wet and I've a call into Mike Jankowski again! Not good!

leak

I also have had a similar leak only when it has rained extremely had in my 2014 R Solera, since I am not the original purchaser ( I bought it with 4,000 miles and 4 months old) I never had the option of a Warrenty. I have been all over the front cap and roof ,and have not been able to find where the water is coming in some time this winter I will get it to a local RV dealer and see hat he can find. but what I have done may work for you and anyone else with this problem. on the passenger side of the cab about 2 inches (low point of the cap} from the windshield I drilled a 1/8 hole through the cap and into the pocket under the overhead bed. this hole immediately started to drain the water from the cap, with in an hour water stopped flowing and for the last 6 months I have had no problems with the water buildup in the cap. I do check the hole once a month to make sure it is open. this does not fix the problem but makes sure I do not have sitting water in the cap that would cause mold .
