Leaking skylight over the shower
BOY, y'all have NO IDEA how much I hate putting this in here!
2012 Keystone Cougar High Country 246RL...
Last night, or actually about 2 a.m. this morning, my wife decided it would be a good idea to wake me up and tell me water was dripping in the shower... To which I said, OK, and went back to sleep 'cause
a: It was 2 AM and I'm not gonna go outside and do anything
b: It's raining like crazy, and has been for the last 6 hours AND I'M NOT GONNA GO OUTSIDE AND DO ANYTHING
Which, of course she REPEATED at 05:30 this morning just so I'd know it really was leaking. SO, I got up, and IT WAS LEAKING.
Took the inner cover off and it's dripping down the folded over rubber (EPDM?) that's in the opening. The skylight is on a slant (the roof slants toward the edge) and the leak is coming at one of the lower corners.
SO, taking it to the selling dealer is pointless - see my previous topic about the slide that didn't/doesn't work and the rear stabilizers that didn't/don't work...
I read several other discussions in other places that talked about using Eternabond tape, cleaning off some of the sealant, prepping, and sticking the tape on. I DON'T SEE any cracks, although it may be more useful to check when there's ACTUALLY DAYLIGHT.....
IF I can find a dealer SOMEWHERE here in southern MN that HAS the Eternabond tape, cleaner, and primer, I'll get it and try to fix the problem. We're, OF COURSE, in East Overshoe, a LONG way from anything resembling an RV dealer or repair place, so...
BUT, IF I CAN'T FIND ANY, is there a good reason why I can't do a little cleaning with lacquer thinner and seal it with silicone caulk?
I THINK this rain is supposed to continue through most of today, but tomorrow is supposed to be NOT raining, so I COULD hopefully get it sealed thoroughly... I"m most likely NOT going to have a lot of time to fiddle around with back-and-forth discussions in here, but hopefully I'll get some quick advice 'cause I KNOW y'all know a WHOLE lot more about what will work and what WON'T work than I do.
