You may need to pull the shroud apart and look at the mounts and supports of the AC unit. Darn I hate it that you are going through this. But at least I'm not alone in the leak boat.

I looked at the AC and it is not leaking l'm leaning to look at the box mounted on the roof. I normally wouldn't think it would be leaking since it is at the highest point but I've been wrong before.

How is that box fastened to the roof? If it has never been removed I would check it out, your running out of places to look. Maybe it's covering a bad roof repair that's leaking.

Thank you! I was looking at your MH pic's too, other than the Tag axle pretty much the same. I just have a few more years head start on my Money Pit's improvements. Did you replace the front seats? They look new. I've enjoyed following your posts and improvements. 92Ly was right when He said when ever you get one project done, their always seems to be another one to do. Hope you get that roof problem figured out soon.

Oh good! (But has it rained?) I still have to do the vents etc on mine. They are covered for the time being due to LOTS of rain. I still have a window or awning rail leak.

I don't understand why anyone would "wait for it to rain" to find leaks. Water is pretty easy to find. Use a hose and find your leaks when you have control over where the water goes. Seems to me that waiting for it to rain would just make it harder to find the area that's leaking since you have no control over where it's contacting the roof.

Plus....55mph in the rain tends bring to light any missed areas, but very hard to find.

Ya, but it makes more sense to use a hose to narrow down where the leaks are coming from when the leaks happen when not driving.

I would like to try the pressurized method described in other threads but I'm 100+ miles from anywhere that offers the service. So axles first...

Well it still leaks in both rear cabinets on the rear corners. Any suggestions? Rear seam? top corners? This leak has been around a long time.
