I am NOT touching this one...

My weep holes and tear ducts are clean, I really think it is coming in from the small gap at the top of the sliding window.

For now, I will stuff tape in there while towing to see if it stays dry. The leak is very small, it's more an ooze and it so far has only shown up when towing in a downpour.

I have checked in the rain while sitting, but.. as you all have mentioned, logical water may not be good enough.

Perhaps I will leave one of my dogs in there a spell after feeding him some nice sausage and green peppers. No pressure needed.. wait ten minutes, walk arent and sniff

Sorry Roger if I sounded peckish, didn't mean to

My head is aching as I pursue the ultimate answer, but I think I'm getting closer: We are about to have the furnace ducts vacuumed out after too many years, and I think I can persuade the vacuum person to connect his giant hose to the Burro after he's finished.

I do understand his device can run in reverse, so that should pressurize the interior of the trailer nicely. A nice bonus is that the air will be color-coded black when it escapes through the leaks, reminiscent of Gina's view from her house.

No appology necessary! Your post was taken in the spirit it was written, Per. I love Rube Goldberg devices. As I said, I just should have thought about maing the attachment facility more elegant in light of your extraordinary A/C system!

Speaking of Rube Goldberg, have you seen this?

Amazing Honda ad
