Leaks

Hit the Rhod
The leak on your foot, running the dash A/C , is from humidity in the coach condensing on your A/C duct hose. It drove me crazy until I finally found it. Find some large foam insulation tube and rap it. A/C is cooler and no wet toes! Do the outside ducts also under the hood.

That's the direction I'm headed, but you've probably heard the phrase, "The Devil is in the Details!"

It's on the "list" . . . . .God how I HATE the "list!"

An update on my original post. After I got home and it all cleaned up, leaned an extension ladder against the side near the front door. There was a suspect area where the fiberglass front cap overlapped the fiberglass roof. Dug out the old sealant and put a nice bead of white silicone sealant. The Golight spotlight gasket/seal also was loose. I wanted to remove the light and put more silicone where the wires feed through. But this model uses 2 odd phillips type screws recessed in narrow diameter holes that I can't get out. I put a generous amount of silicone around the gasket.

The coach is currently at a service facility getting some repairs and there have been a couple very heavy rains. I checked it and so far so good. During the washing I inspected the front marker lights. They are recessed in cups molded into the cap and any sealant looked secure. Heavy rain forecast today so I'll check after the rain to see how we survived.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Checked out the RV this morning and no damage and the best thing NO WATER leaks. We had heavy rain before but not like this. So I feel good on my fixes for the leaks. But now DW wants to stay another night to donate her money. She was up $300 but walked away with a $12 profit. Today I feel a negative day for her but oh well she brought what she wanted to leave here.

Ha! Johndale, your post reminded me of my wedding night as well. Not the "rocking", but "DW curled up in a ball with blanket over her head". If your wife was also whimpering, it would be an exact match!

Yep same thing here. After 45 years of marriage no change. So she plays with her iPad and I cover up and go to sleep. 😂😂
But got to love her.

Since you have a winnebago, I would double check the windshield seal. I've had issues off and on for the past 3 years in my 2012 Journey 36m. I suggest you tilt out the rubber trim strip at the top and run water down the cap behind the trim, this i how I found my leak. I just had a local glass company replace the windshield. I need to test it this weekend to make sure. Also only 3 years there was rust of the frame that they treated.

Like Norcold refrigerators, Winnebago has not fixed there leaking windshields.

I had the same problem with water dripping onto the right side of the dash. After reading the posts here I checked out the running light above the windshield. Sure enough that was the problem. Replaced the light assembly and the guy at the rv center gave me some caulk that looked like plumbers putty but on a roll. Used it around the screws and the lens. A cheap fix that was a problem since we bought the coach in May. So thanks for all the info we get here.
