Shortly after bringing our 36'FDDS home in early 05 we developed a roof leak in a heavy rainstorm. The water came in through the light fixtures in the front of the coach. The repair shop resealed the area around the air horn bracket on the roof and the problem went away for the rest of the winter (we live in No. Cal.so it doesn't rain except in the winter).

We now seem to have the same problem. Has anyone attempted to repair roof leaks on the newer coaches and if so what should you use and what should look out for?

Jerry, be sure that the a/c is tightened down securely. If you take the inside cover off (4 screws - 2 of them under plugs) be sure the long bolts are tight. On my '06, the rear air was not tightened and a leak occured by water running into the light fixture above the closet causing it to short out. The long bolts secure the interior workings to the outside unit and compress against a gasket.
