We just started a leak in the living room part of our 34SK. It dripped from the ceiling seam molding that goes across that last section of our ceiling. Has anyone else had a leak there? We are wondering if the A/C right above might have a bolt that isn't tightened securely? We've had our RW 14 months & rain many other times, although last night it was a strong driving rain coming from front left direction of our RV.

We've had our 36RL about a year. About a month ago we had a real hard driving rain and had a drip in the same spot that you described. I took the cover off the a/c and couldn't find any definite spot that I could say was leaking, but took some self leveling caulk and did any place that I thought was a possibility. We've had several rains since then, and no problem. I'll just have to wait and see if it ever happens again.

I would get on the roof and check around the a/c unit. Nothing destroys an rv faster than a water leak.

Update - we just had a local RV company come & look at it. They found an area on the roof at the rear A/C where it has probably been leaking for a while when it rains. We're going to contact our dealer (Kittsmiller) in the Lansing MI first thing Monday morning & see what is the best way to proceed - to either take it there or possibly to the factory. We're headed back to our home in FL July 7, returning in 3 1/2 weeks, so hopefully it can be repaired during that time.

A follow up question - does anyone know if repairs are still made right at the factory or did we hear something about a Crossroads facility there?

yes there is still a service center that takes care of the Redwoods but it's not at the factory anymore. I believe it's at Cross Roads.

Under the Redwood RV Product section of the main page of this forum, there is a thread on the Crossroads Service Center.

I'd be worried about the dry rot and mold. Good luck getting it fixed.

July 1 update - Tim called Crossroads Service Center first thing this morning. The person he spoke with was very professional & understanding but explained they are booked now until towards the end of August, since it sounds like they will need to replace our roof when they do all of the repairs. He was very helpful & called our person at Kittsmiller in Mason MI where we purchased our RW. We are taking it there this coming Saturday. They will do a temporary fix to stop the leak until we take it to Crosroads later this summer or fall for the complete repair. Thanks everyone for your comments & suggestions!

Thanks for keeping us informed. It sounds like they're treating you right.

A follow-up to our roof situation - while our RV was at the dealer, they determined that a temporary fix wouldn't be good, so Redwood authorized a complete roof replacement, which was done there at our dealer. The work was completed satisfactorily in about two weeks, so all is well!! Again, we're very happy Redwood owners!
