You're not going to like how you find the leak. The easy way is to pull some inside skins and sit in the rain, or have a friend spray you with a pressure washer. The other way is to pressurize the trailer with a squirrel cage blower, like is on a furnace. The water heater is the best location to force air into the trailer. Once you get it fitted up, then you would use soapy water from the outside and see where the bubbles form. The 65-68's usuallly leak because the seals are bad on the windows or the glass has been changed to an incorrect curvature. Check the forum for how to deal with seam leaks, vs window leaks. Jerry
