Question Water under chair on door side of Table

I am finding water under the left rear table chair on my 2013 Cedar Creek Silverback. The table and sofa bed are on a slide. There is no water leaking from the roof and If it was I would see water on the chair Pad. I can not find a path were it is running from a wall. There is just a wet spot on the floor about 6 ' from the left slide wall and about 2 foot from the slide outside wall. Any ideas????

Try drying the area and then dust it with baby powder. You will find the direction the water is entering from. Then you can focus on that area and narrow down the point of entry...

Water under table ...............

I tried the powder and it only shows water in the middle of the area where the chairs sit. I could not find a path to any of the outside walls. It has got to be coming from somewhere. Could it be coming from the window and running on the inside of the wall with out showing signs of wetness on the interior of the wall?

Try widening the powder circle. If it is not entering from the edge, the only other possibility is the top or bottom. Water cannot "leap" over the powder to end up in the middle without leaving a clue...

No the water is right inside the Door on the floor of the door side slide. I dusted the complete area There are two spots It seems like it is coming up from under the floor. Which I know water does not rise from the floor that is why I wondered if it could be going from inside the wall and found a path to were the two spots are. The one spot is about 6" round the other is about 2" round and they are about 5" apart. If the carpet was not fastened down as well as it is I would try to pull up the rug.

Can you post a pic of the spots when you get a chance. I had a place (only one spot) like that. it turned out to be coming from the screen door. The frame was holding water and when the sun heated it up the water would run down the inside. Initially we thought the dog was expressing her displeasure of being left home...

I had the same issue w/ my '13 CKTS, boys in Topeka fixed it by replacing a piece in the slide cutout bottom fwd corner. Don't kow what the piece was called but it worked. Try talking w/ Jeff Holmes, FR Warranty Administrator (West) who is quite knowledgeable on the trailers. His number should be in your list of contacts that came with that mountain of paperwork you got when you got your trailer. Dealer should have it too!

Good luck. Safe travels & enjoyable journeys!

Also if you leave your window open in the rain we have found that it will leak water in. The window on the end of the slides my wife left her bedroom window open one night and we had an unexpected shower and she woke up with a wet box of tissues and a puddle on her side of the bed. I would suspect those windows would leak the same way. Water tuns down the wall and runs into the window they should have installed some type of a gutter to make the water run to either side of the window. But it could cause issues with the slide out.
