thank you!

yes, drive around when there is water on the road. It appears they installed too short of a wiper/seal on the bottom so when the slide is pulled in it does not contact the underside of the slide and water from the tires is coming in but you must put the slide out when you stop to see it because the carpet on the leading edge of the slide traps it underneath so if you just open the door and look in all appears fine.

No rain this trip. I will have to remember and check this out when it does.

Does anyone know if this "water under the slide" issue has been rectified in the 2017 model?

This will only be my second post to the forum so hopefully its ok to add questions to a thread rather than start a new one. The wife and I have decided on the 2504s as well, looking to buy in March, any other pros/cons regarding that specific trailer from the owners??? Family of four, F-150 to tow....we may bring the pug too lol.

Water leak

I had the water leak under the slide on our 2604WS.
What is the fix for that?
