We fixed the roof leak but now this issue has popped up......
Steve, I try to be VERY careful when washing to not spray water directly into any of the various covers, grills, A/C, etc of our trailer. I learned that the hard way on our first RV when washing the roof. I sprayed water directly into the A/C unit - and a LOT of the water ended up on the floor.
I haven't heard of water being able to get inside from rain into the heater vent. Has it happened often, or just in a really driving hard rain? Driving in a really hard driving rain made some water come in a bad caulk bead on our front window, that never leaked before or during "regular" rains.
