I'm just betting you're a pretty unforgettable guy Andy

Now me, I'm struggling to make sure they don't forget my name BEFORE I retire .

A LONG time ago.....

I heard you were like a fist in a bucket of water....
when you backed out, it filled right in as if you'd never been there

Obviously that thing is sealed better than a RW. Also don't care for the super glossy wood finish, makes it look plastic/cheap.

hahahah - ya I actually saw that on TV once. The only problem is there are no decks like a houseboat! Maybe something like this!

Too many compromises....it's not a good boat and not a great RV.

Now we have water coming down through the antenna crank handle :-( Todd will be heading up there today to try and figure it out. DANG! It's always something. I suppose the coming winter weather will reveal all sorts of things. One good thing I guess, we should get them all "exposed" before our warranty expires!! Haha! Grateful ONCE AGAIN for the volumes of wisdom on this forum. Invaluable advice, like "don't drink while on the roof." Check. Hopefully right afterward is ok.

My guess is that you will find the boot that is on the cable where it goes into the roof has worked its way up and is allowing water to run in. It's a common problem. I personally silicone it in place and then put silicone around the top of the boot. Problem solved. I've owned 2 fifth wheels and my son has a camper and all three did the same thing.

I've had the same thing and it's an EASY fix. There's a cap on your antenna. Fill that cap with calk and then stick it back down. There are also "O" rings on the shaft but the cap is more than likely the problem. I just had this same issue a few months ago.

I had the same issue with the little cap on the antenna coming off and having water drip in through the crank handle. Happened just after I installed the Winegard Dish so was I happy to find it was just the little rubber cap popped off .

The vent cover the dealer installed on mine initially was too big and when I rotated the antenna the boot hit it and slid off... even got a pic for ya !

Just happened to discover it before rain because the antenna would not rotate fully !

Yep, you were right. It was the boot! Here is what Todd found on the roof. I LOVE when the problem is obvious. Thanks again!

Yep, use lots of lap sealant over it, as it gets a little side stress when the antenna is lowered or rotated. Mine popped after I fixed it once.

Hmmm,
interesting...

your's looks different from ours !
Yours has a shorter 'nub' to slide boot on and
the 'boot' is stationary .

the boot rotates with ours.... that's why it hit the vent cover...

I would pull the inside cover for a bit to let it air out in there, but if you don't it's probably ok since the water probably just ran straight down (hopefully!)

Yes, it was a very small amount of water (it has been DOWNPOURING here for about 5 days). So, it makes sense as to the size of the opening. It's the first time we have noticed it, but I think it's the first time the RW has been in an appreciable amount of rain. I would imagine those RW's that get stored in a facility during the foul weather risk having "issues" that go undiscovered for a while, simply from being unused in foul weather generally. Ours will definitely get the test! She'll be doing her thing for us all winter in the Pacific Northwest. We get enough winter to make it interesting, for sure.

Todd,
I've always worried about that on mine because it is stored inside, however, this thing is a rain magnet! When I pull it out it starts raining so its been drenched, and driven through rainy roads. So far tight as a bug.

Our first few months, I pulled out of a campsite and it started hailing on us big time (not enough to damage, but huge amounts of water). We drove into town that was flooded and I'm just sure water was up to the belly and probably in the belly at some point, but nothing got in.

That's very good to know AA. We definitely do get plenty of rain where we live. It's been a very dry summer since we took delivery and we have rarely (if ever) had any heavy rain on it until now. I can tell you I was very nervous after the first hard rains started to put my hand down under the slide-out fascias and check for moisture. We have been so traumatized by leaking slides in our truck camper that it's hard to stick your hand down there... I discovered I was holding my breath! But-all dry so far! Yay! If it doesn't leak after this hard rain we have had this week, then I am going to have to come to terms with the fact that.... IT DOESN'T LEAK! I think I am expecting it, unfortunately.

We live right across from you in Victoria and we also have had some good down pours and a bit of wind. It sure tests all the seams and seals

Whew! Yes. We had a TORNADO just 15 miles north of us with a LOT of damage. Unusual (but not unheard of) in this area. Hopefully this terrible weather will not go that far north! I hear there is more coming on Saturday. Batten down the hatches! We were in Victoria last year during our annual "Big Trip" and stayed at the West Bay Marine Village RV park in our truck camper. Had a WONDERFUL time! Glad it's so close, we are eager to visit again!
