The bedroom window is the only window that has felt around it. That has to be an issue possibly?

Tatercolo,

Doubt if it is the weep holes, but we take a can of air and blow them out anyway, would be surprized how much dust etc. come out.

Our Berkshire has bottom wipes on all four slides, good luck

The weep holes can be an issue even if clear. Sat in a pouring rain last year parked at a slight side to side slant. It was raining so hard that the rain running off the roof and down the window was of such volume it filled the track that the drivers side window slides in and some of it ran down the inside wall near the brake and transmission console. I would imagine its also possible in the wardrobe slide.

Not sure why there is felt around the outside of any window?

I agree. Anyone else here with a Bunkhouse that can confirm that the bedroom window has felt around it?

Thanks again to everyone for your help/suggestions on this!

Todd.

Sorry. Was fooled by the pic. The felt is in the track that the window slides in.

The felt is on the outside of the frame connected to the slide. The window that opens is on a totally separate track. The pic you see is the permanent window not the slide window. Hope that makes sense.

Tater did you check the roof on the bunkhouse slide? There was a post a while back about someone having a hole in theirs.

If that window with the 'felt' around it the Emergency window?
In any case, it looks like a big gap to me in the pictures.
Unless the pictures are fooling me, I think you found at least one of the leaks.

You asking me?
I don't know. It just looks like it might leak from the pictures.

I agree. Sorry the ?? was meant that I was confused. I'm just wondering why the bedroom window has it but not the other emergency window.

Can anyone explain where the water is leaking from.

The way that mattress is stained I would say the leak is coming from above the slide, leaking on the mattress top and soaking in. It is not coming from the bottom then traveling up the side of the mattress.

I meant the facing, not the mattress itself.

Are there any water stains on the mattress itself? Or on the top bunk?

None. As one poster stated earlier it appears to be wicking from the bottom.

Thanks in advance!

I would bet it is coming in the top slide seal. I have a little rain gutter over top of mine. Do you use the slide locks? My slide locks go on the top of the slide when in and when tightened pull the top seal in tight so the seal can't leak.

Very seldom will water travel uphill.
