I now have this on my PM check list.

I just had the same issue last week. Had cleaned the slide lock drains the recommended way with a long pipe cleaner just before we left our last location. Heavy rains caught us a few days after we arrived here in north TX. Water came in to the coach through one of the lock basins. When the weather cleared I used my compressor and about 20psi of air pressure to clear the plugged drain. Next rain was not a problem. Happy trails once again.

Your suggestion may be better than my method because it pulls the stuff out of the basin. My method simply fires it back up into who knows where. I will get a baby nose or ear ball cleaner and try it. Smaller than a turkey baster. Same idea. Thanks.

Just wanted to say thank you for all those that have posted the things they have done. Made some repairs and also have found that part of the issue is me not knowing how everything works. This site has been invaluable and I'm truly impressed with the folks who contribute. This issue has happened to many and I'm sure without everyone posting there has been many that have found it useful.

RKL, this issue is for folks with electric slide locks located in the roof of the slide. You have no issues to worry about. I didn't have them on my '05 vectra either.
