    The dreaded cabover leak

    No not soft, you would never know there was a leak..I temporarily duct taped the outside frame only and will spray water on it, then again without the tape, that will tell me if it is a problem with the butyl seal. During a hard rain the window frame dripped down the inside wall..I hope it didn't get in the inside of the wall. By the way the window drain openings are working ok.

    I use overdrive on level ground, the worst I've gotten which included the mountain passes over Shasta and Southern Oregon was about 13mpg. your 4 should get at least 2 to 3 more mpg than the six from what I've read.

    The dreaded cabover leak

    Ok...after all that and a 2200 mile trip to L.A. and back- the leak actually turned out to be the side sliding window. Thank-you Linda S. Ordered a roll of butyl tape- guess what I'm gonna do this week! By the way, 2200 miles my Spirit ran flawlessly with its 142,000 miles on it, got a solid 15 MPG. Average comfortable cruising speed 60 mph. 50 mph up all but the steepest grades. 40-45 2nd gear light to medium throttle up the worst uphill climbs. V6 used 1 qt. of oil in 2000 miles. Really love owning this little R.V.

    How about just staying away from Southern California?...:-)

    Someone on another forum that also posted this act suggested getting the Club...I went out and bought one and feel just a little more secure now.I hope he got it back

    Sorry to hear that, at least it seems like a easy fix. As for now we have had quite a bit of rain since I used the proflex around the lights...I think I got the leak stopped. Jeff

    The Magic of Zep Wet Look Floor Polish

    Did someone think I sanded my Rv? Nope, I just used an oxidation surface compound that prepped the gel coat before the Zep. It's called Protect All - made specifically for fiberglass boats and RVs.

    Thanks Greg...I think I fixed the leak by caulking the clearance lights..(Fingers Crossed) it rained like a MoFo last night and seems dry in there today.

    The dreaded cabover leak

    I don't think it is possible for it to be the side window because the RV is parked in a driveway facing uphill and leaning a coiple of degrees right. I have a feeling that if the clearance lights weren't the culprit I will have to remove the front window. Does anybody know that if you tighten the inside screws around the window does it squeeze it tighter to the body of the RV? October 30th. update...side window is in fact the source of the leak! Jeff

    The dreaded cabover leak

    Thanks for the input..I believe it can only be the window frame or clearance lights. The silicone used by the previous owner was not adhering well around the lights..especially the one nearest where the leak is.The window frame seems to have a tight seal around it and no evidence of any staining or leaking anywhere near it.I sealed the lights.We have had almost solid rain for 2 days with more to come.
