Water Leaks and Condensation-34' LTD
I had a 1990 - 32' Excella for a couple years on the Oregon coast and experienced no leaks or condensation problems. I purchased a 1995 - 34' LTD last August and have done nothing but deal with leaks and condensation. Major leaks (small streams) in the front near the battery cabinet and rear (roadside floor) carpet. We are talking major water. We removed the couch and carpet to do some updating and that is when we found the front battery leak. There appears to be dampness all the way around the bottom of the trailer where the floor and the wall meet. When the carpet and couch were removed we saw damp plywood all along the edge.
Condensation: When we purchased the AS from a local person, he had owned it less than a year and had it brought up from Tucson. The curtains were water stained and there was large areas of dark grey on the walls. We thought possibly dirt, grease. We now know it was condensation. The curtains have since rotted and are shredding.
We have new curtains, carpet, wall coverings and upholstery and really like our AS. We have installed covers over all the ceiling vents, air dryer electrical units and resealed everything that even looks like a place for a leak.
Does anyone have any experience with this type of problem on this model, etc.
