Sad panda, rain is showing up inside.

Mostly here just to complain- I haven't gotten on the roof to look at anything.

I'm fairly positive that it's from rain. No wetness shows up from showers. And it finally rained significantly again after noticing this the first time and it happened again.

If it rains long enough, my rear bedroom floor ends up wet and ultimately soaks down so that the heat duct has water in it.

Unrelated (or so I believe), my vent cover is allowing hard rain to come in. Twice now we were stationary in sideways rains and the bathroom floor ended up with significant water on the floor.

The first time it happened, the kids were in the shower and I wasn't sure if it was them or the torrential rain.

Now that it's happened again- work has been nutty (14-hour days and a couple of all nighters).

On the bright-side, one of the things that I carry is a 6' ladder in my truck bed. It let me get up above this broken part.

Fortunately (or unfortunately), I didn't see anything obvious why this would be occurring. So the water is either coming from a slide or the rain is a red herring and it's coming from something different.

And, I have no idea why it is raining inside the bathroom except that those 3 rains were legit sideways rains.

Always hated leaks. Water seems to do crazy things... Seems to go sideways and up hill to where it shows its ugly face. I had a leak on our Rockwood that traveled from a screw 15' to a from cabinet and no sign of water anywhere in between. It was a real pain to find.

Guess the good part of the leak was by the time I found it I had re-caulked most of the roof.

Ours leaked around the skylight in our last unit both in the kitchen & bathroom, so now try to get one with no skylights, not to lucky as there is always seem to be one over the shower.

Worse case, just use the eternabond tape and preemptively strike. That stuff will never leak again! You will prob not find many if any without a sky light...

I had wet bedroom floors in my Sunseeker 2860DS. My first thought was leaky slide seal had it checked in repair shop and found it was not the seal but rain was coming in around the taillight. Lights were sealed with silicone and the leaks stopped.
