Last two rains pretty heavy and rain has come through the furnace vent. Water comes out from under furnace. Fridge sits above furnace so I assume water gets into furnace leaking out where wall meets floor. Anyone else with this problem? 2006 Challenger.....

Ken & Toni, Happy New Year!! I can't say I have that problem, but when the rain quits, it sounds as though you will have to check the seal where the vent meets the MH exterior and possibly, have to run a small bead of silicone to seal it before the next big rain comes. John H....

Hi Ken! Do you mean the water is getting into the furnace through the vent?

The water is seeping from under the fridge. Ofcourse the fridge sets above furnace unit so below fridge. On the out side there are the two openings on the furnace grate. The round one and the slats. This is the only place I can see where water could be coming in. If that is the case not a very good design.

The top seam of your furnace housing outside needs some sealent between it and the sidewall. Had this happen to me and dealer just sealed the floor and cabinet in kitchen so water traveled into the bathroom got the rug wet I stepped on it and thought I had a leaky pipe.

This exact issue happened to me. Remove the outside refridgerator panel, at the bottom of this compartment they seal the outer lip with black silicone. One spot was missed so I just ran a new bead across the bottom. Make sure you clean it very good before you start. I also resealed the removable furnace door on the outside. Never leaked again. Good luck!
