Slideout roof leaks

Hi people we have a 99 Monaco Windsor that has a water leak from the slide out roof I removed the face trim over the microwave and rear wall area of the slide out and was able to confirm that the leak is definitely coming from the slide roof not the coach, as the water comes in between the roof sheathing and the outer skin. was wondering if anyone else ever had a similar situation and what or how did you repair all help would be greatly appreciated thanks Bill

Easy to control the leak on a 1 slide until you get a fix just level with a 1/4 bubble down on the driver side.

Oilcan,
Check the condition of the tar tape along the seam where the T-molding (outside flange) is screwed to the top of the slideout. This area sometimes gets small holes worn through the tar tape where screw heads stick up or at uneven points. When this happens, water can get into the slideout roof and into the coach.
The repair is to grind down any high spots and cover the seam with Eternabond.

Also check the seam on top of the slideout along the side corners. There is tar tape there too. It is less susceptible to puncture, but could also be a source of leak. The repair is the same as the other area.

Good luck,

Roy

Bill,
You might think about ordering a roll of Eternabond from Amazon so it will be waiting for you when you get home. It's a good bit cheaper through them than from a RV supply.
