Mrs.Mod, I bet the water is making its way in from the fridge vent. I was outside working on my airstrean in the rain and it is gutted. I saw that it leaks from that spot.

Super,
Everything around the vent looked clean as could be. No sign of water running down from the vent down the wall. The hole is right where the fridge drain ?(half inch hose tube) goes into the floor. So the hose must have been leaking and running right down to that spot on the floor. It just got me thinking about the wheel well.
We had an incident last April where we lost a wheel (yeah, a wheel). When the wheel departed the trailer at 65 MPH on I-5, it banged around in the wheel well and cracked things up a little. So it got me thinking about the possibility of water coming in from there.
One of these days I'm going to stop messing around with old stuff. I'm gonna get me a shiny new AS and enjoy the comforts of a warranty...for a little while at least.

New is nice, but it hurts more when something happens to it and you still are making payments.

Hi, btowntincan; I haven't had any issues with any of my body seams, only where roof vents Etc are. [roof cutouts]

Love the crutches/ladder contraption. I have about 3 sets of crutches laying around. I need one of those!

I assume he made that ladder out of an old ladder and and old crutches.
But maybe he bought it.
