Hello from Texas

We have an 05 Safari (28 ft.) and have been AS'ing since 04. This is #2 and the one we love.

I have been trying to find a thread that has info about inside leaks. We have discoloration in the interior fabric beside the window next to the couch and sink and also to the right of the door which looks to coincide with the exterior seam that is to the right of the door as well. We need help; I am sick that this is happening and ruining the fabric. Any suggestions on what to do?

THe leak may be coming from the roof. SInce the leak is near a seam it is also near a stringer. Structural support. It may be running down the stringer and coming out inside.

Howdy bslat -- Welcome to the Forums! I remember your stretch of I-35 when there was still enough room for the Selma cops to set up speed traps. We couldn't figure who'd drive all the way out to Pat Booker Rd. when SA's first Datsun dealership showed up along the frontage road in the mid-60s. You'd think escapees from the Snake Farm would've stopped all the strip development...

I've got to caulk a corner of my front window in the spring. Take a look at the end of the extrusion that the front rock guard slides onto. A screw at the end of mine didn't quite get caulk around it. My current leak theory is that water flowing down the extrusion gets in there and causes water to come down the wall below the corner of the window. I'm hoping that's it or else I'll be up on the roof next.

I need to apply some parbond to several seams on my trailer and replace some seals around the windows and roof vents, always something. Yet it's better than owning a white box that won't last much beyond 15 years.
