ACE leak

I have a 2017 ACE 29.2 and thereís water coming in near the fridge and running along the carpeted step to the bedroom and to the cabinets in front of the bathroom. Cannot find anything obvious outside. The underside if the slide out is dry and I took off both fridge vents and all us dry there. The slide us in when it leaks. Anyone else gave this?

Could it be you have a leak in the water or drain lines that are in the slide? Somewhere there is a slot in the slide floor where the slide plumbing and wiring run through. These are all usually flexible hose or flex pipe for the plumbing. The movement of the slide can wear or loosen these components.
You can find where the slot is by opening the slide and looking underneath the slide. There will be a slot in the floor with rubber flaps on each side (to help seal it from outside). The slot will probably be above your wet bay where the sewer hook up is. You can look up in there with a flashlight and maybe see what's going on. You can reach up in there and feel to see if it is wet. You can get a peek at the slide plumbing by removing the drawer under the oven and looking in there with a flashlight. If there is a leak in there, you may have to remove interior components to access and repair the break.


You might have a water line leak if you water pump cycles on and off when not using any fixture and not hooked to city water. Do you see water leak only when it is raining?


Hope you figure it out.

Thanks Triplewide, sorry about the spelling in my post I didnít check before I entered. I think Iíve found the problem. Upon further inspection I found the outside cover on the range vent was wet inside. So I cleaned and caulked the vent cover. It was about the right distance from the end of the slide. Iíll find out next time it rains hard. Thanks again for your response, Iíll keep your suggestion in mind in case itís not fixed, but it leaked when it rained. Iím not hooked to any water and not currently using coach. Howís the new coach been working for you? Iím sure youíve upgraded some things by now!

Hope you fixed the leak, sounds like you have.


So far so good with the Miramar. Have not used it a lot due to Covid. I think about 4-5 trips so far, longest was from NC to Key Largo. Planning a trip to Maine this September.


Somewhere around 20 modifications so far.


Starting to work on DIY Magnashade at this moment.



May add third AC and a half dozen other mods in the future.



Keep it between the ditches.

We havenít used our ACE much either, in fact only one camping trip since April 2020. That camping trip was only a week ago. Vaccines here in Canada are not as plentiful as in the USA. We wonít get our second shots until about Aug 1st. Looking forward to getting on the road. Iíll check in once in a while to see how itís all coming along. Best of luck with your projects.
