We are having a chronic problem with a water leak. The dealer in FL removed the drivers side power window and replaced the drip pan and resealed the window. This seemed to fix the problem. We had a factory appt the 26th of April, and asked them to check it to make sure. Wouldn't you know it, a week later we were sitting in Guttenburg IA and were pelted with 3 days of rain. The wind was blowing it against the window and the leak is back.

We are currently in the middle of IA and are working our way slowly west. Route is through Salt Lake then south through St. George UT, Las Vegas then San Diego by July. Can anyone recomend a decent service dept. somewhere near that route.

A friend said they had good luck with a Cummins Coach Care Facility and Newmar was OK with warranty service there, even if it was not chassis related. Any one else know if they are any good???

Thanks

Checked my door window. Window has a rubber seal across bottom edge of window opening, pretty tight against window when used in rain wipes off window going down and water goes on outside of door not into interior of door, no drip holes but slots 3 along bottom edge of door inside. Would asume water would drain out of these slots and drain to out side because have seals all around the door caseing not allowing water to get in side. Didn't see anything that would look like a drip pan as you discribed or dealer told you. "007"

Roger......wait......you mean there ACTUALLY are problems in the Newmar forum today?

You mean the HWH jacks and the bedroom slides on Newmar's go bad too??

Well I'll be plum tuckered out with that one....

GOTCHA!!!

It's a SAFE BET that ALL these coaches have their issues at times,now isn't it and maybe we can count on ANY COACH that goes down the road with all those systems on board developing issues afte time...

When an Owner gets done sorting out a new-to-them used Newmar--like ours--the
*end* result will always be a ready to go Newmar--after you spend your money, and, skin
your knuckles, in the end, you have something.

007,

I have a DP. There is no door on the driver side. There is a large window that is a power window. When you remove the console below the window you have a long narrow plastic drip pan that collects any water that gets in through the window seal. The dealer replaced the drip pan and declared it fixed. Seemed to be OK until we were caught in three days of wind driven rain that beat directly on that side of the coach. I am a little hesitant to try to trouble shoot it myself as the console has the trans shift pad, power leveler pad and numerous other switches on it. You also need to remove the driver's seat in order to get access.

Thanks for the updated info DP's do have a few items on that wall. Can you observe them working on your coach or have him show what they are trying to do to fix it. "007"
