1999 Cutter leak

I've got a leak in the right rear corner of the bedroom of my MH. I've attempted to patch what, to me, look like the obvious spot on the join of the rear cap to the body at the roof line with Ruscoe Permanent-sealer.

Are there any other known spots I should look at?

Thanks,

anthony

Welcome to the forums!

I am sure members may ask you about the garlic festival...........


The trouble with leaks is that the water can come in anywhere. The water could be coming in around the rear roof vent, skylight, or the rear AC seal. You also have vent stacks that penetrate the roof. Any of these could be the source of the water. I am not advocating sealing them all, but if you do not want to take the time to test them all for leaks, then that is the next step. Seal them all.

Does the leak appear when the rain is light? Does it appear immediately when it does rain? These are additional clues to the proximity of the actual leak to where the water shows up in the rear.

That's what I was afraid of. I had hoped that water on RVs was a bit more civilized than on boats (where, despite all logic, a leak can originate on a boat halfway across the globe...).

But, to the point, this leak (seems to) only appear when it rains steadily.

As far as the Garlic Festival, it's worth going to. Good music, crafts, and food. And the garlic ice cream is a must have (once) - something that you may relive all day if you are lucky...
