Question leak in curb side rear storage compartment,1999safari 25 ft.

I have a leak in the rear curbside storage comp. I have had the trailer to an Airstream dealer several times and the have done some caulking and sealing around the rear window and side window and the comp door. The leak is still not fixed. The dealer tells me they have done all they can do. I would be interested to find out if other owners have had similar problems and a fix for this persistent leak. Thanks, Sam.

If there is a sewer vent pipe in that area, then check the gasket on the roof, as they only last 2 to 3 years.

I would then suggest that you carefully check the awning brackets and their rivets or screws for a proper seal.

You can also spray that immediate area with water, and see what happens.
