I'm guessing the roof will be easy to fix with some type of sealant (any suggestions on a good sealant?), and the door is probably a matter of replacing the seal, but I'm not sure about what to do about the leak around the window, it may be coming in from around the frame and needs to also be sealed but I think it may also be because the louvered window doesn't close up as tightly as the other windows... if that's the case what could I do with the louvered window to keep it from leaking? Caulk it closed or are they fairly easy to repair?
I've got the same problem, purchased my '72 Sov this summer and wasn't expecting so much rain (everyone kept saying Nor Cal was in for another dry winter) well, we've just had 12" in 7 days and a load more to come!
Andy from Inland suggested new seals for the vent pipes, very important. I did this already and most definitely working.
i have a ton of water seeping through at that front, so guess I'll start by sealing around the windows. coming in through the roof too somewhere ...
Can the actual seams leak? how to seal these without spoiling the original "look"
