At least they weren't 90 degrees off!

BTW, sorry for not editing the photo before posting.

I looked at your photo and had to look closer to see it was not correct, but thats OK, you could get a job at the RV plant and fit right in (Big Grin)

Inspectors? They have inspectors?

I was surprised at how many QC people I saw when we did a plant tour in 2015. Seemed there was one at each main station, with a roll of blue tape marking items.

Two things caught my attention, 1st that they were actually doing it and 2nd, the amount of blue tape markers, both pre and post paint.

But at least there were markers.

Sure have a lot of defects that get thru into dealers if they have all the QC people you indicate. I have been to the factory twice (years ago) and at the time they were using red markers on the units and lots of them. Seems only the color has changed, not the results...
Makes you wonder how many of the markers are accounted for in QC.

Unhappy More Leaks!!!!

The saga continues, so far I've had the all roof caulking renewed, AC seals changed and scare lights sealed. We had heavy rains last week while camper was stored at home with slides in. I found two large puddles of water between entry door and fridge in the middle of the floor, I don't see any evidence of the water coming from the ceiling. Also large puddle in center of living room, once again no evidence of coming from ceiling.

Is it possible water is leaking through slide seals and collecting on the floor?

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUGGESTIONS?

There are several ways for water to get in even tho the slides are closed. Make sure all the seals on the slide faces (outer edges that face inward) are all intact--usually the upper corners tear quickly.
Sometimes the culprit is the lower horizontal molding that all the slides have at the bottom sides--check closely that there is a caulking seal all along the top edge of the molding.
Since the trailer is at home--strongly suggest that you make the effort during the next rainstorm to be out in the trailer and see where the water is coming from--or maybe make your own rain with a water hose with someone inside.
Hope you find a solution to the mystery....
Joe

Thanks Joe, I had already changed some out some of the D seals. Getting really discouraging, I think I have it corrected every time we fix something only to find more water.

I never had a problem with my old '05 TK3, but with this new RSSA, we have noted some wet carpet after traveling but not when parked with slides out. Puzzling....
Thinking the D seals were maybe not doing the job, I added foam gasketing all around the slide facing where it meets the D seal, thinking this would compress it better. So far, been ok in the rain, but really haven't traveled much in wet weather since I put the foam gasket on. This is the same stuff you get a HD/Lowes/WM that has tape you peel to stick it to the window frames. Not hard to do, but lots of footage when you do all 4 slide faces. Just an idea....
