Believe it or not, that stuff works pretty good. Just make sure it is clean and free of loose insulation and no visible openings. You could possibly use strips of endurobond. Seal all around the transition with the wheel well and sides.

Love the design but the execution sucks! We have had more repair issues with this unit than I can list.

After my hubby brought our unit back from a trip to our storage facility, we noticed lots of water only on the floor under a window. Therefore, we figured the water come in from around the window or ceiling vent, or back ramp door. NO! Not it.

No leaks or stains around the ceiling on dampness inside cabinets. We have looked all over the unit trying to figure out where this water issue is coming from. May I add it does not leak when it rains? Only when we tow. Very strange.

So this past week on our way back from a weekend trip, I placed towels inside the unit around the wheel well. We came through many large puddles and constant rain. When we stopped, I put my theory to work and checked the towels. Guess what? The towels were all wet! Yep… I figured it out.
Our two-year-old Work & Play unit leaks like a sieve around the wheel well when it is raining. Only on one side at this time. (Yes, our extended warranty has expired…*sigh*.)

Now the trick is to figure out how we are going to seal the wheel well so not to get water intrusion.

Additionally, we DO NOT have any slides.

Has anyone out there had an issue on his or her toy hauler or trailer?
How about on another Work & Play product?
We had a similar leak on our Work & Play a couple of years ago. My unit is not parked at my house or I'd take some pictures to show where it leaks.

If you look behind the tires you'll noticed the upper wheel wells are metal. This metal portion forms somewhat of a rectangle box above the tires. This metal box comes down and meets the plywood that forms the floor. This is where the water enters. I would suggest using silicone to seal EVERY SEAM behind the tires, in front of the front tires, and behind the rear tire on both sides. This includes the open rectangular/square steel framing that meets some of the exposed plywood sheeting. Water can enter this tubing and seep in via various mounting screws used to mount the steel framing to the plywood. Silicone every opening, every seam, all the exposed plywood laminate and edges. It's really not that much work. You may need one or two large tubes of silicone. Personally, I wouldn't spend time trying to isolate the exact area where it is leaking. I'd also make sure the unit is completely dry before doing this. You don't want to seal in any moisture. It needs to be completely dry first.

Good luck!

Check the refrigerator drain, it has to be sticking out of the outside louvers.

forget the flex seal get some high quality silicone pull the wheels and silicone all seams well once done and dry then you can flex seal but you'd be better off using a rubberized undercoating in the rattle can can be picked up at wall-mart or ace
