Roof leaks

Well Hurricane Harvey is over Memphis and I brought the 30 classic home to load it for a weekend camping trip. Raining cats and dogs and I went out to do something and damn it it's leaking in side. It's coming from where the front AC is mounted. What a pain.

Took it back to the hangar where I keep it and climbed up on top to see if I could see anything. Nothing at all. The only place I even think it would be is the AC mounting bolts. I know water finds its ways but this is crazy.

Anyone have any suggestions???

Sounds like you will need to remove the AC cover, check the bolt areas and the seal where the AC units connected to the ceiling duct-work.

Agree with Zybane. You might try pouring water on various parts of the area one at a time while someone else is inside the trailer to determine the approximate area of the source.

Try snugging the mounting bolts half a turn or so. You that from inside the trailer.

Bud, I just had the funniest visual. Alice outside with the hose on full blast and you inside and very successfully locating the leak. I must be very tired

Actually Alice inside and I climbed up with a three gallon bucket and poured the water right onto the cable which I felt (correctly) was the culprit. The manager of the storage lot thought it was amusing.
