ID:	5259We just bought a like new used Four Winds 22e from McGeorges in VA. Talk about starting off on the wrong foot. It had been raining pretty hard a couple of days before and on the day we picked up the RV (actually a blessing in disguise). We didn't get more than half a mile from the dealer when a small waterfall started flowing from the bunk area above the cab. The one thing I am very apprehensive about in a RV, trailer, automobile is a stinking water leak. Here it is happening to me in our shiny almost new RV! I once had the floor rot out from under me in a travel trailer and didn't even know it, but that's another story. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper ☹️. Two 80 mile round trips and a few weeks later and they seemed to have sealed the leak/leaks (although there is still moisture in the front clearance lights which drives me nuts and they seemingly sealed in). Anyway, I am looking forward to some great experiences with the DW, two small dogs and this machine.

I don't get those front cap roof clearance lights.... No matter what I did as far as taking them apart and sealing them on our Axis, they still ended up with water droplets inside. I ended up finding the same size and style on the web that are LED and already sealed. Gave up on the old ones.

Hi Earl, Yep, moisture inside any lamp assembly has always been a pet peeve of mine. Where did you find your lamps at?

I was planning to do the same thing. I hate seeing water in those lights...

Do you have a part number on the ones you used?

If you have trouble finding your lights you can try drilling a small weep hole at the bottom. I had to drill on our last coach because leds weren't available then, never had any more problems
