I'm a similar situation Geek and have the same calculus problem. It's not a simple "take it back to AS" with jobs and kids and vacation time and etc etc etc. My moisture meter seems to work and it detected moisture near the door on our 2014 (I posted about this a few weeks ago). I was able to pull the flooring up enough to look and feel the area. Seems dry to me?? Foley and AS are aware of the potential issue, but I'm not about to go through the logistics of a warranty trip for a potential leak. I'll keep watching the area and start a list as m.honey suggests. I will definitely plan a trip to JC for a check-up (at a minimum) before the warranty is up.

I am self employed so it was maybe a little easier. Fuel for me was tge bummer. 2k miles round trip with a big block suburban at the time! Seriously though, worth the trip. If you document the issues prior to your warranty expiring they will honor your issues post two years. Also definately make an appointment if you are looking to go to JC..

Great advice - thanks -

Landrum - I need to read your thread - sorry to hear about it - better to find out leaks now and fix - frustrating

Found this with a bit of drenching with water - will be tinkering more later tonight - seems definately from the storage door - not sure exactly where Click image for larger version

I'm sure you're wondering if it is the door seal or is the water coming into the wall above the door? I wonder if you could stuff some weather stripping in around the door and re-test. If there is no more water inside you would identify the problem as the door gasket.

To be clear the water that entered for my test was on metal surface and I captured it with towels and newspaper before entering the other flooring

As far as moisture that is under flooring to date? I have no idea how that moisture will come up

I am asking iggy walker and they say they had same problem while driving in rain - I bet a lot that theirs leaked while sitting at home as well - I'm going to their house perhaps tonight to see if theirs reached same spot as they have not leak tested yet and have same trailer as me

From my experience that door sux. I tried for a year, could not get mine to seal. Its like the latch wont put enough pressure on the gasket?
