WATER (4 letter word)

Has anyone experienced water leaking into their overhead compartment on the left wall above the drivers seat? I can't see where it came from, whether the window seal somehow, or the roof seam, or maybe where the antenna drops down. It was significant enough to wet the rug on the floor, have about 1/4" standing in the compartment and drain into some of the electronics on the left side console. Caused some shorting in the headlights that I was able to fix br drying out and I have only witnessed dampness since during big storms. 2011 BH so it should be tight. Taking it back to dealer in NJ to have checked. Sorry, but this rig has been one defect after another, primarily due to lazy and careless craftmanship

I'd have them run a pressure test on it while they have it.

the only water issue we've had is that my feet sometimes get dripped on when the A/C is cranking full blast. Other than that no water issues.....so far anyway.

The only leak we experienced was on the sofa slide out right behind the drivers seat. The cabinet smelled moldy & the carpet along with the bottom corner of the couch would get wet. Forest River took it back to the factory & fixed it.
