Help; leak

I just bought a used 2011 17EXLLTD and the front sofa was wet when we inspected it at the dealer, they said no problem they would fix. They replaced the front fold out seal and latches and said it was all good. First rain (Yes in Michigan) and it leaked again but this time I found the drips coming from the 12v outlet in the ceiling; any ideas if the caulking looks good? My thought is the AC unit, I think they have a gasket v/s caulking. How do I find the leak? Thanks for any help.

I think that's a wildwood hybrid, Dan. But they don't show the model on the current website.

yea, i was figuring that it was a Wildwood 17EXL. don't know where the LTD came from. never seen a Limited version of that model.
another person just posted about a 2003 Wildwood 25EX. i didn't even know there were Wildwood hybrids that far back.

Exclamation

Personally, I would have never taken it that way (to be fixed or not). Deal Breaker, big time. Water is not what you see, but what you don't see thats dangerous. Good luck. I'm sure FR will honor your warranty.

Thanks, they (Dealer) put some puddy on the roof and all is fine. Sorry it is a Wildwood Eapandable and I can't wait to use it other than in my yard. I just re-did the battery with a quick conector & water proof outlet that should be good for a panel or anything, we off grid only so this should be a good unit.
