Ah, yes, the honeymoon is over with my newly acquired 68 Overlander---it's flooding down in Texas (my rain gauge had 4 inches from today)---
and inside the airstream... a big puddle.
I didn't like that carpet, anyway.
Two clues...maybe same issue (I hope)
I had noticed some water damage around sink area, but attributed it to pipe/sink moisture......
nope, something's leaking..........1.) one hint is that the previous owner included a replacement exterior stove vent hood in the deal. The old one is cracked. .
There *is* water obviouslu collecting above the sink and dripping through the wood where the light is installed (just to left of stove vent)
[the airstream is not leveled at this time]
Okay, time to install the vent cap...does it require a gasket?
I see where it screws in.... guess I need to buy a gasket?
Any other vent hood/cap installation tips?
2.) along the floor to the right of the where the aforementioned stove vent is, is a strip of caulk at the joint of the floor and wall.
Hmmm- would this mean that replacing the vent *won't* solve this leaK? Are wall/floor joint leaks common in older A/S?
I do enjoy a mystery and will not take it to Camper Clinic just yet!
Seems like the vent is a likely suspect.
The good news, although a lot of water came in, it is all localized in one area.
