Full of water but frozen now . It is frozen insulation. I think it may be coming in from the awning gutter .Water under the awning in a few spots noticed dipping down the outside wall when it rains.Click image for larger version

It should be soft and fuffy not a frozen mass

Be careful dealer said water heater leaks was the cause. .not.. the water heater and all water is all on the left side on a 22rr except for kitchen sink(not leaking) it is winter no water in the sink area..

As the snow melts, mine is leaking from a ugly splice near the awning. Its running down on the outside with nothing in its path to make the water go inside.

That is ugly. my splice was on the other gutter on the driver side. A dab of silicone on the outside bottom stopped my leaking gutter. Feel the liner it should be soft and dry not a frozen block of insulation. mold is my concern. In the spring when it warms up. I don't like the thoughts of what will happen. Rolling Mold . Water is the death of a tt. I will trade asap..I haven't even used it..sad camper.

"Trade"? Are you talking about having it replaced under warranty?

I would at least poke a hole in cover to let water out as it melts. What opening on that side of tt.? Window, vent for stove ? Our stove vent leaked when we first got it. Bad caulk joint.

Or do nothing let it rot, talk bad about manufacturer, trade it in, let it be someone else's problem.

Most people come on here for suggestions on how to fix and ideas on where to look.

If you don't want to do either, see first paragraph.

Being a new unit it can be fixed with minimal damage to tt. Still under warranty, take it to dealership for repairs.

This may very will be a 30 min repair and a non issue for years to come.

It's very obvious you are new to the RV world. You will NEVER find a unit without some sort of problems. You must be willing to learn to do your own repairs or live near a dealer and be very patient while it sits on his lot waiting to be repaired.

There is NO quality control in the RV industry. It's all "buyer be wear".
