We closed up camp in the pouring rain like we normally would....but only with rain gear on. When we returned home and entered the inside of the camper.....we had a couple medium sized puddles of water on the floor at each end of the slideout.....along with a few acorns. We are scheduled to take the camper back in a couple weeks to have a slideout awning installed. This was planned prior to this past rainy weekend. I had one on the camper we traded in....and had no problems at all with water in that one. Just posing or asking the question to camper owners with slides that do not cover them with awnings.....as I notice many people with RV's that don't have slide awnings. Is water being deposited from slideouts into the camper after closing....a common thing after a lot of rain? Or should most be kept outside the camper by the seal system thats on the camper? Any info would be great.
We bought a '13 Grey Wolf 28BH in April. Very similar story to yours concerning the puddles, however our slide was closed during a downpour. Took it into the dealer for that issue and a few other minor things. Dealer said the "slide drains" were clogged up with sawdust from when they built the camper. They cleaned it out and cleaned all the seals and problem solved. Like I said, a few minor things, but totally enjoy the camper. We have been out 4x now, getting ready to go out the last weekend of October.
