It scares me to think that the only part of my moho that has appreciated in value since I bought it might have been the fuel that came with it. Unfortunately, I used that up before I got it home.
There must be a joke that starts out.... What do mohos and investments have in common? Answer: NOTHING.

Installed the new drapery end caps and mounted the new valances. They look sharp with the new drapes. Now need new day/night shades.

Got to hate those water leaks!

Along with the windshield, my bath carpet is soaked again. Just don't know where the water is coming from in the bathroom. I do think it is leaking from outside. Time to drink a couple of beers!

Snow is the worst thing as it holds the wet in places it normally would not plus the weight will not help!
Your layout is different to mine, but have you checked your sewer vent seals?

I replaced the sewer vent seal a couple months back and it is located on the left rear side. My leak is on the right rear. Left rear corner is dry. Bath closet is in the left corner and I can get to subfloor there...all is dry. Shower tub is on right rear where the leak is. I also sealed the bath roof fan a month back.

It could be the shower plumbing or an outside leak on that side. I'm heading down the mountain and into Redding tomorrow to visit Harbor Freight to pick up an inspection camera.

Using my new inspection camera, I think I have pretty much ruled out the water pipes to the shower valve. Floor is wettest directly in the middle of the right rear corner. Maybe leaking at the taillight? I'm getting very frustrated with soaked bath carpet. Can't do anything outside...it's been raining/snowing since 7am this morning. Snow is just now beginning to stick.

Could be a seam, or also the upper marker lamps...

I'm guessing there is a horizontal seam back there...under the belt line/molding?

Yes, there is, under the upper moulding but its an overlap seam, so my money would be on tail lamp, Upper segment seam, or Marker lamp... or maybe even the reaview camera holes or Airstream letters...
The reason I say this is because I had a rear corner leak, and that is what I resealed, and so far... fingers crossed I have not seen any more drips...
The Tail Lamp assembly has a ABS bowl behind it that sits between the 2 skins... any water getting inside that area will run down the inside of the outer skin onto the floor. I sealed mine up good... let me go onto my laptop and see if I can show you what I mean with a pic...

Here is a pic of the rear corner leak...
You can see the streaks where the water seemed to have been running down the inner wall... which puzzled me.


Here is the internals of the tail lamp... I had sealed min, but there was a gap between the ABS bucket, and the outer skin... so any water would drop straight down the gap between...

Thanks Steve. I did pull the taillight and seal it a bit (the best I could do in the rain). Pulling the carpet up now...sooner then planned!
