Aria 3901 basement issues

We hit a lot of rain on our travel to the east coast, but this should not have happened. These pictures are from the front pass through right behind the propane tank. Lucky I didnít loose the sliding storage rack. Looks like water was entering the vertical board at the outside corner and slowly getting in. Has anyone else had this issue. I replaced both pieces and sealed the joints with silicone and then put water proof Gorilla patch tape on all the seams. Hopefully that will do the trick

Unfortunately, it seems to be a somewhat common problem with the Arias. I have a 2017 Aria 3901 and, luckily, haven't put it thru harsh rain yet (also, I live in Arizona so not that much rain to be experienced anyways). But I have seen others post their damaged basement floors on the Arias. I would love to see your final repair pictures. I am thinking about doing some sealing and water protection coating proactively because of this issue.

Aria 3901 basement issues

I will send more photos of the repairs. There is damage in every basement panel so I am sealing them all, top and bottom. Should be finished when I get the rest of the Gorilla patch and seal tape to complete taping the edges inside. I have sent these photos to Thor to see if I can them to do something for us or at least fix it so it doesnít happen to the next owners. One other thing to add to the checklist. In a downpour in Louisiana, my driver side windshield wiper started slipping and ended up almost off the coach. I pulled the small cover plate and found two set screws. Fixed it but got soaked.

We have the Aria 4000 and haven't seen those issues, and we spent several days just outside Yellowstone in the rain back in May/June.



We will definitely keep a close eye on them for sure, thanks to your post and pictures.
