If you have a front area roof leak, look here

I had a front roof leak, water coming from ac vent, speakers,etc and found that they never sealed under the frisbie looking fitting that the antenna wires entered from the roof just in front of the front ac... has a softball size hole in the roof under it for the wires to go thru..thus water also.. a point to ponder..Mel

Hi Melorene,

I have not had that problem, but I have had leak problems around both air conditioners. There are 4 attaching bolts, they should be retightened against a rubber gasket every couple years A very easy fix that we can all do ourselves,. good wishes, old trucker.

I had a leak in the back ac since the rig was new in 08..water dripping on my bed was not fun..I have had both ac' s pulled and new gaskets in place and the plastic cups that channel the water to a hose that runs thru the roof area and down to drip on the ground was broken off at the cup on both..and yes go in from the inside of the coach and take the screws off holding the filter area and tighten the long bolts that hold down the ac in place..leaks are troublesome..Mel

We had a similar problem with our 07...water leaks at both air conditioners. Agree with what you said about water over the bed, Melorene!! Anyway, turned out that they had ratcheted down the air conditioners so hard that the gaskets were totally compressed and there were depressions around both units...thus a place for water to pool, and the squashed gaskets certainly didn't keep the water out.
