So I assume this only leaks when it is raining? Not when the AC unit is going etc?

Hello
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 months ago

SO Water leaks can be difficult to pin down and a shop would have to put in the time and effort to find the leak. Water can get in wherever there is a void, or something is not sealed and can travel pretty far and leak out where they want. The procedure I would do is do a full roof inspect looking at any molding that is not sealed, sky lights, vents etc. There should be no cracks or voids in any of the sealant or that is just an area water can get in. I might also pull a few screws on various vents, trim molding etc and look for signs of rust, that would be a big red flag, sometimes screw holes do not get silicone put into them when they are secured and they can leak, if they have been leaking you would see rusty screws.

In the shops I have been at what we would do is dry the area really good and simulate a rain event with a sprayer small areas at a time. Normally doing that the leak will show....

YES I AM HERE TYPING AS FAST AS I CAN.

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 months ago

Many times doing a simulation of a rain event will turn up the leak but you have to start away from the area that is leaking and do small areas at a time. It would be impossible for me to say where the water is coming in at but hopefully these tips help you narrow the area down some....

Real world not simulation.. should I take the fictive down an loom from there?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Not worth it
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 months ago

It would not hurt to pull the fixture down to see if you can see any daylight, of course during the day.

I am trying to be helpful and give you some pointers, I understand you are frustrated and I would be as well if you had 2 shops look at this.

IF you are not satisfied please let me know I can direct you to customer service. Robert
