Bad Workmanship

Well some people know how it can rain in the Northwest but don't think the downpour we had this weekend is any reason for my brand new 220rbs should have created the mess that it did inside. Water dripping from the corners of the slide when it is all the way in.
Not excited to haul it back 100 miles to the dealer. What does a person have to do to drop it off and get all their money back? I am at that point!

And the Seahawks are playing like crap!!!

Don

Hello Don, don't feel bad regarding the Seahawks, Manning had a quarterback rating of 0 as in zero. and the Broncos looked terrible Manning has been benched for the next game... as for your leak I found a small puddle at the corner of the slide by the bedroom door after we got back from our trip last month and the slide was in. Never had a leak when the slide was out and it poured down rain..how does that happen?? took it to the dealer and he could find no reason for the water...strange

Surveyor Leak

Hi Rich
Yes that is exactly where my leak is. Right in the front corner between 2 pieces of plastic molding. I thought I would tilt the trailer up and see if it made the rain run off. Nope the next day i mopping up water in the bathroom because it was coming out of the same place but on the corner by the bathroom.
Have an appointment to take it back to the dealer where I bought it.
This should be fun!
Do you have the slide awning on yours. Wondered if it would help!

Don

Hi Don,

I don't have the slide awning and was wondering if in fact that might have been the problem, did by chance water collect on the slide when it was out during the rain and then make its way down thru th molding when I had parked the TT after getting back home. The dealer ran tests with air and couldn't find anything and I'm not sure I want to try to make the leak appear by putting water on top of the slide.

Perhaps, without a slide awning some leaves or twigs could have been on top when the slide was closed. Maybe if a small stick or other small foreign object were lodged in one of the corners when the slide was closed, it could provide an opportunity for water to seep in. Don't know how likely that would be. Just a thought.

mjones12,

I suppose that is a possibility, but how likely is it to happen to 2 different campers that just happen to have the same make and model TT. Going to have to either get slide awning installed or start making sure top of slide is clean b-4 retracting it.

My 2013 Surveyor 220 does have awning and never a leak. A coincidence? I just don't know.

I think I will suggest that an awning be installed. It does make sense!

Dropped off trailer at the dealer today. Had to tow it back 108 miles but I thought it best to deliver it back to the dealer where I bought it. Could have had the warranty covered 15 miles from home.
What I noticed today is that there is a seal on top and on bottom of the slide out but no side seals. I would think there should be. Will see tomorrow what they say. One other problem I noticed is those real nice 2 lights on the front of the trailer had water in them. Will add that to the list of repairs.

Don let me know what the dealer has to say about the leak, I still have to take mine back to get one of the sliding pocket doors replaced. I'll see what they have to say about putting a slide topper on. Maybe FR will pay for it if it all those without toppers are having leaks.
