Pleasure Way Excel Water Leaks

I have a 2012 Excel TS that leaks like crazy and I cannot seem to find anybody that can give advise on getting them fixed. Here are the issues

1:Tail lights leak into rear inside corners.
2:Rear door windows occasionally leak from the bottom up.
3:Passenger side rear door leaks into carpeted area inside door.
4:One of the two upper front windows leaks onto micro wave.
5:Massive leak through firewall onto drivers side floor.
6:If you remove the A pillar trim on both sides you will see that they have been leaking through the seams for a long time as there are rust run marks at the bottom of each pillar.
7:Water leaks down some of the screws that penetrate the roof where the fibre glass and metal roofs join.
8:And the newest leak is over each side rear window and the interior fabric walls and curtains are now stained by some black substance that was in the water.

Items 3 and 4 may be fixed (by me). On items 2,3,5 and 6 I have been to three different Ford dealers and had the windshield resealed twice and various other attempted repairs with no positive results. With help from Neil at PW I think we know what the fix is for number 5 and I am working with a ford dealer to perform that repair.

Nobody on the pleasureway owners group seems to have had any water leaks so i thought I would ask for advise here. I have had this unit since new (16 months) and have been trying to resolve these leaks basically since new. I have no dealer support locally because I didn't buy it from the local dealer so he is not helpful. Any advise is appreciated.

I had the two upper windows leak on my 2013 a week after I bought it. Called a local glass place and they resealed both. They said there was next to no sealer there originally. I'm going to check the other places you mention on mine in the morning, but haven't noticed any leaking elsewhere (yet )

8 leaks is a lot in a PW.

What happened to the same thread in RV.NET? It is now locked and some of has been deleted.

My thought is that being in the middle of Canada would make it real hard to find a dealer large enough to do anything. The OP needs to take it to one of the large dealers in the States such those near Dayton. There are two within twenty miles in that area. That would be about 600 miles trip for the OP.

I have to retract my comments of the thread being locked on rv.net. However, some of the posts have been deleted as probably violating rules.

I personally own a PW and am disappointed that this is all occurring. I started out thinking that possibly the op was disgruntled for some reason. The number of leaks, 8 total, is really unimaginable in a PW and farther even more unbelievable since other PW owners are not reporting similar experiences. Another observation is that about half of the leaks are Ford problems rather than PW's. I also find it hard to believe that if real PW has not sent a rep down to look things over. I am really anxious to have this issue resolved and to know the details.

I am away until May in my other motor home (Phaeton 36GH) and will be resealing all of the screws on the roof seam when I get home. Neil believes that will solve the problem and I am hopeful that it will. Until then she sits in my driveway under a mountain of snow.

Closing comments

I think we have reached the end of the road on the PW leak issues and I wanted to update the forum members on the outcome. On the major roof seam leak I removed the trim molding around the roof and resealed every single screw and after a bubble test (paid for by PW) there appears to be no more water leaks from the roof seam. The local Ford dealer removed the dash board and repaired the hole in the firewall and that appears to be the end of that leak. I resealed both upper roof windows and hopefully that is the end of that leak. I have found the source of the side entry door and tail light leaks and sealed them. Looks like we can get on with enjoying this little motor home. A happy outcome .... finally.
