Roof over cab leaking into cab

Joshua, can you advise me where to call for immediate help. After it rained here in Jacksonville, FL area, the large pop out area over the windshield which says Sunseeker on it(2400r model) was sloshing with gallons of water in it which when I started to drive poured in the ceiling right above the driver, upper console light and passenger at the point where the visors meet the windshield. I and my cab and passenger got soaked. It is not from the windshield seal. That is fine. I need immediate service from anyone! Help! Has anyone else had something like this?!? I've made several calls to Goshen, rvdirect, and someone named Travis Logan rep for Sunseeker. Please help. I've not heard back yet!

I have a FR 24R that has the same kind of "mystery" leak. The motorhome is parked on my driveway with the cab facing slightly downhill towards the street. We had a substantial, but not unusual rain that day, and when I attempted to move it, there was a LOT of water that "sloshed" through the door seals, and over the visors. 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

I'm currently at the dealer having mine looked at. After I did extensive detective work I found it coming in the gutter above the drivers door . Maybe somewhere else but exact same thing as you. My weather was dry and I found it came from the roof air conditioner. When the puddle on the roof got large enough, water drained into the gutter and eventually into the unit. I first noticed water dripping outside from the corners of the cap but I guess after many days of airconditioner use enough water puddled in the cap and when I moved the RV, it streamed into the cab all over me thru the visors.

The FR Reps, Brian and Josh, usually only respond in the Forester, Sunseeker and Solera forums. I suggest you both post this in one of those forums so they see the issue...

Thank you HiFromKate! I suspected that the water was getting into one of the roof vents or AC. What did you do to fix it? It appears that there must not be a drain tube for the AC unit condensate...

If it poured in through the visors in the cab then I doubt it was from water inside the cap. The cap and cab have no connection to each other. Either way it needs to be fixed.

Thanks Joshua, it is apparently not that uncommon. It is on the shop now. The water was collecting in the cap area somewhere, just in front of the windshield and under the front bed. Only found one point of entry so brought it in to be hopefully dried and investigated. Mike Jankowski got me an appointment, FR Mgr, for Sunseeker I think.
