Time to check your roof seams. I just did mine and found for the first time in 3 years of ownership, a little spot over my bedroom slide coming loose. You can't check with just a visual inspection, you must press the fiberglass to see if it seperates.

Cleaned the seam, resealed it with some Dircor self leveling RV caulk and I'm good to go. Hitting the campground this weekend-Hoo Rah!

Eternabond can be used as a permenant solution if you choose.

Best Regards!

I have already done my old Winne last week with a complete reseal of the whole roof and end cap.
I feel much dryer now!

Paul,there was an entire topic recently on JimBob's eternabond repair...might be worth looking into.
There was even a lot of discussion about adding the rain gutter stand off spouts.

I have a leak that's above the cabover bed. I just noticed the bed cushions are really wet. (I bought the unit Wednesday from a couple who told me there were no leaks and that all appliances worked)! How can I tell if it's from the big front window, above the cab-over bed or from the roof seals?
My rig is a 1997 winnebago Itasco Spirit.

Just looked up at mine yesterday and the eternabond looks as good as the day I put it there. I might add my roof seams had "no" caulk from the factory. Thats right folks "no" caulk. Push in roof and nothing on either side I was surprised. Having said that, I still had no leaks.
