Rain leaking on the passenger side.

After a strong rain after pulling in the slides I get rain on the passenger side near the top of the ceiling, that also travels forward to the inside of the windshield. Wondering if by not getting the rain off the slide toppers am I bringing this water into the MH that then travels forward on braking and turning. The water eventually exhausts itself. I have run water on the windshield and the pass windows to see if they leak. With no results. That's why wondering on the slides. I will research tilting the MH with the leveling system before bringing them in. I seem to remember reading about that. I have checked, the roof and the roof caps. All seals up on the roof good. The MH is a 35F Itasca, 2015. This is really irritating.

Besides tilting the MH to drain some water off , you might try bringing the slide in slowly to give the blade a better chance to get rid of the water.

Right at the corner where the cap, gutter meet is where it leaks. I have had 3 different Winnebago's and they all had a leak there. Put sealer there and all better.

Okay, I'm confused. I have a 35F Sunstar and the Passenger side Slide is at the back of the MH. It's the Bedroom. The Front slide is behind the driver. So if you are getting water on the Passenger side from the rear bedroom slide then you really have a problem. And the some goes if you are getting water from the Drivers side slide on the passenger side.

So please help me help you, are you sure about the model? and or the side that is getting wet from what?


No matter what if it is still under Warranty take to the dealer ASAP.

Thanks I will try to get the water off first and slow the retract. I have seen where there is the possibility of a leak at the cap as
suggested below
Will look one more time

Sorry I have a 35P Sun Cruiser. The leak is on the passenger window ahead of the front right slide. I have 3 slides
2 on the right and one big one on the left driver's side.

Hi again, I looked at the gutter and cap this morning and find the caulk in good shape, but I also find a square hold in the gutter that goes directly inside the roof unobstructed if you put a screw driver into the hole. There is one of these on both sided of the MH in the gutter. Is this what you are talking about?
I have attached a picture below.
Thanks for your help.
