Hi all 2504s Owners,

We have our 2015.5 2504s into our dealer four times to resolve the water infiltration from under our slide which only occurs when driving with wet pavement. Has anyone else experienced this and have you been able to get it fixed?

Thanks in advance!!!

I could see some daylight under the slide on my 2503S. I've caulked the heck out of it on both sides. There's a "fender-shaped" piece of plastic above the wheels. You need to caulk where it meets the side wall of the TT. It's kind of hard to get into it in some places. I had the DW pull the decorative piece away as far as possible. In tight areas, I put the caulk on my finger and put it up where it needed to go. (Be careful not to cut you finger on the plastic - don't ask me how I know.)

I think to really do it right, you'd need to remove the decorative piece. It appears to just screw to the side wall; but I haven't felt the need to go that far, yet.

Hey Jay, it appears the water comes in as a result of the slide being directly over the tires so at highway speeds the water really spins off the tires. There is no plastic wheel well on my trailer to deflect the water. I can see daylight at both ends of the slide bottoms when the slide is in.
