Is this a Belly Belt Leak?????

I had a door that was bent out of shape and not even close to sealing. That is now fixed. Looks like I also have another leak issue. Anyone else seen this in their unit. I want this fixed before the wood starts rotting out. I am ready to put a new carpet in but not till this gets dealt with. Thanks for any inputClick image for larger version

To test it I would seal the door over with plastic and duck tape and let it dry. You can peek in every once and a while to see if it is dry. Once dry I would reseal the door and floor the side of the trailer with a hose. If the floor again show wetness it was not just the door. It may take some time for the floor to dry as that type of flooring holds a lot of water.

I think the door was to blame.

Have you removed and replaced the sealer above the rain gutters over the door and window?
Also the awning track is suspect. All common leaks which show up in that location.

Something to check, make sure all fittings under the sink are tight and secure, including the water filter if you have one. I had this exact leak in my 2014 flying cloud 25RB. I just found another in the rear of the trailer. I'm open for suggetions for this one.

that is not original flooring / plywood.
I'd say PO put that and padding / carpet over your already rotted subfloor.
Good luck.

Not sure what year and model you have. Mine is a '73 27' Overlander w/ rear bath. My window has been leaking also. I have experimented with taping the window edges this winter since I had replace the window seal just last summer. I added more tape to the top hinged connection the next trip over to where i keep my AS. Greatly reduced the leaking . . . almost completely. So my feeling is to take the window out, the that hinged connection and reseal/reinstall. Then to the hose check to test. Probably will wait till summer though.

OSB was used as the original flooring in the 80's and 90's. Not all, but some, and this one probably is one of them.

didn't know they would use such an inferior product. Not that plywood is much better if not coated but still better than OSB. If you go to a lumber supply that is the cheapest buy.
What year is this anyway, just curious.
