Tongue jack/table

We just returned from a two week trip in our 25bh(2017), wanted to pass along a couple things, first the electric tongue jack stopped working would not even work with wrench, had to replace it on site, also the dining table was stored for travel and separated from the table top during transit, put some adhesive and 1Ē staples to remount. We also pulled through a bad rainstorm and water got in from the bottom of the slide out, has anyone had this? Itís not obvious where itís getting in .... out of warranty by 6 months (figures)

The wet floor in the slide out area is probably due to a leaking seal you will find under the trailer in the wheel well area. The tires throw a lot of water up on the undercarriage right against the slider seal. The seal is stapled in place, will work itself loose, and usually can be caulked and screwed back into alignment to stop the leak.
You seem to have remedied your other problems well.
Travel safe

Thanks FordHauler, Iíll look at that, one thing I forgot, the dealer that sold me the tongue jack said to avoid retracting the jack until it stops

Correct, the tongue jack motors can quickly burn out when they're run all the way. We made the same mistake on our first one that luckily the dealer replaced free of charge.

FordHauler, that seal is good when the room is out,but when closed the seal is a good 1/2 inch from the floor, not much good when traveling, I guess Iíll have to stuff a seal up in the opening. Thanks for answering
