I have two issues.

First I am having issues with my Thedford toilet and I have Vacations Savers coming out next Friday. Should I just bite the bullet and get the Dometic 320?

Second I am getting water in the basement. I have taken the ceiling out and dried everything up, then I ran both sinks in the bedroom and bathroom for fifteen to twenty minutes and no leak. I took a hose up on the roof and applied water around the vents, still dry. I put it back together and yet after each heavy rain there is water in the basement same spot.

Any suggestions where to look for this leak? Yesterday I pulled to paneling down with my finger and got a small trickle of water. I am thinking of having Vacation Savers take a look while he is here, I am sure he much more knowledgeable than I am when comes to these thing.

Thanks looking forward to see what you guys think.

Jim

I had a basement leak it was just forward of the forward door drivers side. It seems that the door frame is a few different pieces the leak looked like it was coming from higher than it was. The leak was actually coming in where the hold back cable attaches to the rig at the frame.

Thinking of basics - how about the gasket on the door. I note that they installed one of our gaskets incorrectly and had cut it short, leaving a gap. Does the door apply good pressure on the gasket when closed?

We had the same issue. Turned out to be a bad water fitting for the washer connection.

If you have a washer, I'd look at the drain under the bed. Also check all those water lines under the bed as well.

This isn't an issue for FB's, as I understand the issue is for the RW's that have the W/D's in the bedroom slide, e.g RL's.

We had a similar issue and found that the door gaskets would allow rain to seep thru especially on instances where we had heavy rains. My husband removed all the gaskets and placed a beading clear silicone on the inside lip and reattached. Haven't had a problem since.

Dave - I initially thought of that one, but the OP mentioned the leak was after heavy rain.
