Awesome I'll check that out! How is it holding up? I love the maxim skylights I want them.

Pour d rain last night. I pulled the inside of the sky lights and fans and it's dry there. Back window I thought was the marker lights over the window but apparently not still leaking. Must be the brow caulking itself. I'll be pulling that all out this weekend.

Front window is 1/4 of what it was but still getting some water on the inside of the glass. It's coming right thru the seal caulking on the inside! I'll be going over the outside caulking again this weekend.

As for the dinette? Still at a loss and still searching.... More of that planned for the weekend as well lol.

My skylight was dry too till I felt some dampness on the fiberglass insulation at on corner. IT never leaked in at the skylight but ran to the door and window beside it. A new Maxim did the trick. I hope to do the hall skylight this year. Great quality from Maxim.

Follow instructions precisely. The Hy-tech went on great. Customer support is great!! The roof MUST be clean...I scrubbed down to good paint and repeated 3 times till water came off roof clear. Allow to dry completely!!! The problem is having a dry surface and temp correct. Next time I will "rent" an enclosed storage slot to do the application work.

Also, get some "Captain Tolleys creeping crack cure"... Apply per instructions around window edges.. Good to do in dry shed.

my problem with the roof is that its just too cold to coat it right now. It will have to wait till spring. Thanks for the Captain Trolley's tip. never heard of it before but I just ordered some should be here in a few days!

To everyone else thank for all the tips! I have lots of places to look I will be out this weekend searching again. I will find and stop them eventually but they are not making it easy!

Same as another poster, found my problem at the bottom molding right at the door. The rivet closest to the door frame had been been cocked to one side by the installer and that allowed water to siphon through an incredibly small defect. Of course, I found it after months of stripping caulk off roof penetrations, e.g. skylight, vent, antenna, etc., door and windows. I was told long ago by a sheet metal worker that roof flashings can leak through microscopic defects so I was forewarned. Good luck!
