Water issue on a Keystone Passport

I have a 2007 Keystone Passport, purchased new, so this is our 9th camping season. About 2 yrs ago we noticed an issue with water puddling beneath some trays on the counter top behind the stove. Nothing else felt wet but tried to reseal around the outside vent which did not work. Now, after the winter, we noticed warping at the edge of the counter adjoining the sink. This past weekend we drove through a driving storm and when we got to our campground, about a 2' x 2' area of the carpet on the floor in the RL area was soaked, this about 3 feet from a wall or window and nothing else felt wet. Another 2' x 2' area of the floor beside the bed was also, completely soaked. This was immediately beside an outside wall and under an emergency exit window, but the window was closed, and again nothing else was wet, not even the cover of the bed. At this time we noticed some warping of the molding in two corners, one on each side of the bedroom, at top near ceiling on one side, bottom at floor of the other. We then noticed similar warping in a corner of the RL area, and evidence of prior leak on the floor area along the side wall (not under a window). No other evidence of water around windows or ceiling or walls. Perplexed as to where the water is coming from. Has anyone else had a similar issue with either your TT or the same model as mine and is the fix going to be expensive.

Sounds like it's time to re-caulk that roof. You better get up there and take a close looks at all the seams.

My guess is your might have a holding tank valve leaking or improper seal at the bottom of the RV between the tanks and the floor

I think that if the seal on the holding tanks was faulty it would be difficult for the water to go up out of the tank and pool as you indicate. I would figure that in this case and most others the water is traveling down from an upper faulty seal. If you can't locate it then ask your dealer. Must be roof vent side wall fault like bad window seal. Depending on the damage it could be expensive. Most manufacturers state that all joints should be inspected and resealed every 6 months. No one does this even yearly and that is why the problems develop. Good luck.

They don't stay new forever you need to recaulk that whole camper sounds like damage has already been done. If you maintain ur roof/lap sealant, corner moldings and all other seals you'll never have a leak.
