Anyone had their coach roof leak tested by CW? Results? Recommendations?

Had it done once, still have no idea how they even do it. Results that time were supposedly pretty good. Had the cap resealed, but still got a leak in the next heavy rain. Have had the whole roof resealed, want to see what the results will be this time. CW is doing it for free, of course assuming they will get some work out of it.

Would appreciate hearing your experiences.

Only if they're an authorized Seal tech leak tester. Anything else is less than quality. I built something similar to the seal-tech using an old furnace blower assembly. Works great for a small pickup camper, almost too good.

Didn't have mine done at CW but at my local RV dealer. He used a large vent and blower and attached it thru one of my roof vents. Closed up everything and then started pumping air into RV. Meanwhile another tech was on roof with hose giving everything the air bubble test. Found several spots along line where awning connects to roof. Patched it all up and so far no leaks!

Had it done on my truck camper and a leak was found around water tank fill door. Only costs about a 100 bucks to have done. I noticed on Craigslist that a Sealtech machine was selling for 2k dollars. Thought about trying this as a side business.
