It's been raining, and I found some moisture on the insulation under the front right overhead cabinet. Rather, not the cabinet itself, but under the empty space (which the little particle board separates from the cabinet). Tearing down the particle board I saw a bit of a puddle there. Under the insulation it is also wet. It's kind of puzzling where it is leaking from -- the only suspect is the front light... Anyone had anything like this?
So this leak is more extensive than we originally thought. It goes all the way down into the floor under the bench and the table (puddle under the bench, moisture verified with moisture meter under table). ETI told me that the floor will dry out if I run a dehumidifier and water will drip out from the bottom. I am concerned for mold growth in insulation and floor and glue in there. But of course I’d rather not rip out the floor if it can be helped. What are people’s thoughts on that? Have you run into this? TIA
My guess is also the front clearance light. Attached is a picture of the inside upper front corner on a classic 19. They didn't previously insulate the corner so you can see the light connection and two rivets. You can see that there is an opportunity for water to come in if the light isn't sealed well. I would pull down or carefully cut away a section of the insulation in that area and have someone on the outside spray it with a hose as was suggested. There really isn't anything else in the vicinity that could easily leak on 17 that I'm aware of.
You are presumably under warranty so I would call Escape too.
