THE FLOOD ooohhhh nnnoooo

Have been using two fans to dry the bedroom carpet. When my sister and I were down in Gulf Shores, AL, this past April. We went through the monsoon rain event. Close to 25" of rain in something like 23 hours. The bedroom carpet got soaked. So I figured a roof leak or a lead around the window. I could not find anything that would indicate that. Did not do anything. We went camping a number of times and if we had a wet carpet we didn't know it. Most of the camping was at COE parks and state parks which don't have water hook ups. This last weekend the same thing happen. We were at a private campground and hooked up to water. They have a decent water pressure. The carpet got soaked. Stood there looking at the carpet and thought the only thing close was the water line to the toilet. Shut off the campground water and oopen a faucet to relieve the pressure. One morning I was sitting out back enjoying the morning drinking a cup of coffee. And it darned on me, Wait a minute the outdoor shower is past the toilet on that side. I went into the C and pulled back that carpet cover curb which hides the water lines to the outdoor shower, a large loom of wires, and heat duct to the campartment that has the dump valves in it, to keep them from freezing, and the duct with the gas tank filler tube in it. So its close quarters in there. Started to check for ddrips, and here is what a I found. The outdoor shower hose had vibrated lose, it was not even finger tight. Hopefully that is the leak. Easy fix. Off to the local box home supply store today for a new hose. And turn the fans on again.

Safe Travels.

If it's been wet off and on since April, you may also have a mold problem. Make sure you spray everything down with mold killer.

Hi RVThere. I have not seen any signs of mold Tom. But that is a good preventive thing to do. Will get some mold killer and spray everything before closing up stuff, and the carpet. Thanks.
