I am finding wettness on the cusions where no dripping occurs. I find water pooling up under the lip of the inside of the cab over. I have had it back to the place I bought it to be resealed but I am still having these issues. Are there tricks to this like kepping windows open for condensation help? How do I convince the place I bought it that I am still having leaking issues? Is this common with Class C's with windows up front?

jasonrandall, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experieinces. The leaking can be coming from any number of locations. The front cap to roof, clearance lights, molding, or windows. Good luck in getting the problem repaired but keep insisting that they need to find where it is and get it fixed. Have them leak test it there when you come to pick it up.

jasonrandall, as Mike said there are lots of places where a leak in the cab over can be. The easiest for you as an owner to check is the 3 yellow marker lights, i.e. are there any signs of caulk shrinking, cracked caulk or lens, etc. Also check the screws if they are not stainless steel they should be. Good luck in getting that pesky problem corrected, Ken,'04 DSDP...

I agree with Ken. I once had a leak in a class C from the get-go. They had the window out and re sealed and it turned out to be the marker light where the wires came thru the cab, no silicone on one of them. Look there first.

I think Fossilhead hit the "nail on the head". I too had several leaks up front and it was my marker lights, three of the five were leaking.

Good luck,
