Talk about a leak test.... I am getting one this week ( so far so good )up here in your part of the country. We have been here in Jackson since last Saturday, and nothing but rain night and day. I am beginning to wonder if maybe taking the coach out is a bad omen. Went to Borrego Springs....Rain, went to Aguanga.....Rain, four weeks later......Rain. Now I know the meaning of the term Cabin Fever. Had a ton of little projects I wanted to do ( install a remote keyless entry system that Dan Richins got me into ), but doing my best to just stay dry. Dan I should have come up your way this week and you could help me figure out where these gazillion wires go.

Take care,


Walt / Julie Darden

For those in rainy California, Walt, I do not think bringing out the coach is the root cause! I washed and drove the Vette last weekend, I think I am the cause of the latest round.

One other place I found for water leaks to occur is the large lights on the side of the coach, either the patio light, or the security light on the left side, both of mine were not completely sealed and I saw water inside them.

Walt and WeBrzn2,

We also took the coach to Borrego Springs and Aguanga and watched it rain. We are headed to Phoenix next week, so if it rains there, we are the curse. If not, it is between you two!!

Since ours is an older rig, last year I spent a couple of days on the roof getting a tan. So I was really disappointed when I found that leak. Now Patty says every time it rains I run around the coach checking every crevice for moisture.

Walt, one more week and we should be clear. Where are you staying? We are looking to go that way this spring. I've thought of checking out South Lake Tulloch RV Campground and Marina near Jamestown.
