We purchased the trailer about 10 days ago and had to driven to a storage lot (no truck yet). We've had 2 fairly decent rain storms and after each we've found water on the vent area at the back of the stove top.
The trailer has not been leveled but is only off level by a few degrees (I'm going to measure it later today). The 'kitchen side' of the trailer is higher than the 'couch side'.
After the first storm which happened the evening of delivery, I noted that the stove vent cover on the outside was cracked open just a bit and wrote off the issue as water forced into the vent when the dealer was doing the final wash. I mopped up a bit of water inside the vent exterior and closed the vent.
The day after I dried everything out, I verified that the stove was still dry.
After the 2nd, I verified that the outside vent was closed and there was no standing water behind the vent door.
Is this (pics of leak
) considered expected behavior if the trailer is a bit off level? If so, how far is too far?
I got on the roof and looked can't see anything obviously broken but, then again, I'm new at this (see below).
I will have the dealer check the system when I take the trailer and truck in to have the sway/weight bar installed but wanted to gather information before I do that.
We've owned one (leaking) Class C but no other trailers so we're pretty clueless on a lot of details.
Thank you for any information you can provide.
