Slideout seal repair near Augusta, Ga

I can't figure out where my leaks are coming from when slide is in plus another small leak in cabinet that holds bedroom TV. It's time for the professionals to try their luck at it. Does anyone know of a reputable shop within 200 miles of me. I have a 2006 Revolution LE. Went 2 months of using it after purchasing it without any problems. Now it seems every time it rains I get a new leak Thanks

Not familiar with your area, you can always call Rev/Fleetwood/American coach and they can suggest a good shop.

Hopefully as simple as needing some new caulk on the roof, which should be done yearly

Have you tried resealing where front cap meets the roof? Where the roof meets rear cap?Ive had to reseal shower dome and several other places.

shajoe44,

Sorry to hear you have been having problems. They sure have a way of making an enjoyable time unenjoyable. Guess most of us have been there, but your problem MAY be something simple like cracked sealer on your roof.

In case you forgot, these things DEMAND attention and if we don't give it to them they will let definitely let us know.

Be safe, but climb up on your roof - that's where 99.999999999% of our leaks come from. The sealant drys out and hardens over time. Add to that the constant vibration of the coach and roof seals are going to separate. At least once a year you need to climb on top and inspect every seal for cracking, exposed screws, etc. I use the automatically leveling sealant and apply it liberally. Sometimes you may need to use a putty knife to remove severely cracked or hardened sealant before adding new.

I think this may resolve your leaking problem. Richard

I climb up yesterday and sealed over some older cracked seams. I will go back up tomorrow and reseal what I didn't get the other day. I've got the self leveling sealant. Thanks for the ideas. Of course 10 inches of rain this month hasn't helped matters. With 4 more coming Thursday and Friday
