Good tip Danny, although there is less chance of that happening (knock on wood) since the puttng away routine is much more involved and is done by my wife and she is pretty good about checking before pulling in the slides.

I guess I need to make a check list and follow it to the letter. My pilot days will help conjure a decent check list. I followed them to the letter and I can follow a TT checklist.

That is actually good to hear and sort of what I expected. I don't believe that it flexes a lot so the fix should not be hard. Will probably seal the whole length of the awning seam and be done with it forever.

The aluminum gutter rail is spliced right before the speaker, I put a drop of silicon on it and quit leaking there

It's amazing how stuff we have to do. But...I still have a ton of fixes to do in the house. So, it's about the same I guess. Only difference is my house doesn't roll down the hill every now and then. Lol

I had the same kind of leak past the awning mounting rail on my Coleman pup. It probably just needs a bead of caulk along the top of that mounting rail. I found that with the pup I was stretching the awning too tight and when I loosened it off a bit the leak stopped. I don't know if that's possible with an electric awning.

Clean inside the Gutter at the connection,dont use caulking or silicone as this will (Build a Dam) in the area. Wrap a piece of (Eternabond) around a wood pencil and lay in the gutter,allowing (2in) beyond the seam on both sides. Measure how much it will take to go up both sides and across the bottom,and roll this up on the pencil! The (Eternabond) only gets applied to the (Inside) of the gutter! Youroo!!

Sounds like a good tip. Thank you.

Speaking of Water!!!

Well we just completed our first long trip with the new trailer, but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate...meaning one super nice day and 4 days of driving rain....including the 2 eight hour pulls. And when I say rain, I'm talking Biblical.

After each pull, I found water on the floor in front of the range which is getting the carpet wet. If I lift the carpet up the upper side of the floor of the slide seems to be dry. I think its being thrown up into that corner by the leading tire on the drivers side, and seems to be migrating through and around the corner heading to the rear of the trailer. I haven't had a chance to pull the slide in, and look for a possible entrance.

Anybody else run into something like this?

Also, it was my first run with the Equalizer 4 pt. Best $500 I ever spent. Trailer felt totally different. I lubricated mine (it did come with grease on those surfaces from the factory) so I've been refreshing it before each pull. I really haven't noticed any noise at all. My old Draw-Tite made more noise at low speeds.

Harv I hadn't noticed anything like that in mine but I can honestly say we haven't driven through biblical rain showers. We have had some while camping but have been lucky while traveling. Take pictures when you locate the issue.
