The leak at the awning/trailer.... is it at the 'channel splice'? Very normal/common to leak there.

Well I spent all day getting the new to me Tow rig setup with my Equalizer hitch.....I think it turned out pretty good....Sure doesn't have the power of the Tundra, but it doesn't owe me anything so I am glad to not have the payment.

Well my DVD player would only take the disc in halfway. Called the dealer and they said to remove the trim ring and pull the unit. There will be two screws on top with a sticker that says remove before installation. So I removed it and what do ya know the factory only removed one screw and left the other. Nothing surprises me anymore.

Well it seems that it doesn't matter who takes the shower we have water come out the front or back of the tub along the lip of it. Anyone else have or had this problem and any solutions?

Whenever someone takes a shower, the water that is hitting the front or back wall from deflecting off the person, is running across the rim of the tub and out onto the floor. Didn't know if there were any guards or anything to put around the rim of the tub to keep the water in.

Ours is a 2016 & its doing the same thing. What we found is that when the tub was installed the front edge was pressed down onto the stud wall so far that it actually makes that any water that hits it or runs there from the front or back walls runs out onto the floor. It should be installed w/ a 5 degree angle back toward the shower. You can pull the screws & tilt it back however we found that when we did so the screw holes were exposed & the tub surround is too tight to get enough tilt. So Im going to let them do it under warranty. For temp use we have been very careful to make sure the curtain wraps the corner & we put a towel in the corner on the edge of the tub to keep it from running out on the wall & floor. Its a hassle but at least were camping & not waiting for a repair...
