(This note is from my husband, Mike.)
After having some leaking in the front ceiling vent on our way back
from CO with our newly acquired 1992 Scamp
5th wheel, I recaulked it over the weekend.
It is raining heavily this afternoon and when I went out to the
trailer, it turns out that it is leaking at both vents!
The caulking seemd to make no difference. I think my job was sound.
When I climbed up in the rain to look at the vents, I see some
hairline cracks around some of the rivets and the water seems to be
pooling on the ledge around the domed top of the cover.
The place where both vents are leaking is on the middle of the long
side toward the inside of the trailer.
There are two screws on each side that hold the metal bar in place
underneath the cover, but the water does not seem to be entering
where the screws are located.
Any suggestions on what to try now? Do I need to buy a new vent
Any help appreciated.
