It looks like the ceiling is sagging in this photo, and the other thread you started looks like a stain at the top of the wall. It seems likely to be a water leak.

Water leak When is the last time you sealed the roof?

I would guess moisture. Time to reseal roof and end caps.

thanks for the response, I quess the photo does look like the ceiling in sagging but its not, I was wondering about the line, we were in Jacksonville, FLA last summer with some really bad rain and noticed some water coming from the fan, Jeff resealed but we think that it had been leaking before. So what could the line be from?

We have sealed all the fans, ac units and such. We were told we bought our RV that they sealed the roof and didnt need to do for some time. How often is to often? Thanks for the help.

How often do you seal your roof, and forgive me but what are the end caps. Our one slide in the living room where you see the top of the inside of slide the wiper seal was rotted last summer, we replaced the whole seal, but the moisture seems to be the same. Do you think if we had a leak in the fan unit with the other picture that is were the moisture is coming from, not the actual slide?

Thanks. Carrie Ann

WBGO says to check roof seals annually. This is done by attempting to press in the side rails that curve into the roof. Then re caulk as needed. If they press in it is time to re caulk. I do mine about about every two years or so but I subject my coach to some weather extremes. You may be able to get by with doing just a section but you might as well do the whole run. Removing old caulk and cleaning surface before re applying new.

As far as fans and vents I personally think eternabond tape and dicor self leveling are the way to go on flat surfaces.

End caps are where the front and the rear sections are attached.
