Leaking Bunkhouse

Hi folks I need a little help. I have a 2008 Cedar Creek Silverback 35L4QB. Whenever it rains the carpet in the right rear slide gets wet. The roof of both the trailer and the slide has been checked and rechecked. The rubber seals around the slide seem to be fine and there are no water stains anywhere. The only thing that gets wet is the carpet and of course the floor beneath. Been searching like crazy and have come up with nothing. Any theories or ideas would be appreciated. We're heading to Mt. Rushmore in a couple of weeks and would love to have this squared away before we hit the road.

Is there a window near where it gets wet? If so make sure it is not leaking. Water leaks can be interesting to troubleshoot. The actual leak could be a couple feet away and the water migrates thru the walls/roof and exits in another spot. Make sure you expand your search of the roof area. Also check the "roof" of the slide where the side walls meet. Clean and then caulk any suspected spots.

Enjoy Mt. Rushmore. it is great.

There is a window nearby but it's been checked pretty thoroughly. However, since I can't find anything else I'll check it again. Thanks for the reply, can't wait to hit the road.

You might want to check the tape seal on the slide roof where the wall meets the roof. It has been a problem on a number of Keystone products (Everest); just may be the same for yours.

If your electrical plug in is at this location I would definately check it out. I had water coming in mine and only seeing water on the carpet because my kitchen is at the back and I eneded up lifting the carpet in that area to dry it and finding mould. When I went to remove the carpet my knife when through the sub floor which le to removing the kitchen cabnets which housed the electrical panel so I could replace the subfloor in that area.

Don't waste your time, go to a Camping World service location.

They have a leak detection device which will locate where the water is getting in and then can be repaired and rechecked!

Worked for me after my dealer could never correct my leak problem!
