Does it look like this? My leak was caused by the cab over window. It was installed without any butyl tape and leaked like a sieve. The cab seam was the drain.Click image for larger version

Pictures help. Lots of people have been inside and out of these builds and can pinpoint for you if you offer more details.

Same drip location but no window. Going in shop tomorrow , driving last week after rain for 4 days got soaked while driving water everywhere in cab saw water dripping like pic for months dealer put caulking in a couple of spots .in February, didnít think much of it due to no sign of leaks in bunk until fri.

My leak was the cab over window not being sealed properly. The window is on the drivers side and the dripping under the cab was the passenger side as seen in the above picture. I used a Dicor Seal-Tite Reseal kit and sealed the window properly. No leaks since then. I would also check the roof where the cab connects to the roof and make sure everything is sealed properly.

After all said and done the damage was done and mold/mildew formed in the cab over. I took all of the wood out and rebuilt the bunk area. Threw away the beds and put a single piece mattress up instead.

This is a 21 so I hope I caught it in time it is the shop now . I never noticed any water inside until a big rain storm . But the same drip you have since last March reported to dealer they inspected roof and put in some sealant up there . Does it still drip since you fixed window? Did you have to remove window to repair? Thanks for responding!

Dry as a bone even after 1 hurricane and 2 tropical storms here on the NC coast. It is a DIY repair and the window needs to be removed. Took me about 90 minutes.

Thanks,
I also wanted to post a picture of my roof seam , they installed the winegard antenna about 1/2 ď from seam which I also feel could be an issue. I canít figure out how to upload.

Do you also have a magnetic Sirius XM satellite radio antenna stuck to a plate on the roof? The plate may be sealed but the magnetic attachment is not watertight. Also check cab clearance lights if you have them.

Got it, my concern is looks like no sealant behind leg of antenna ,why they would install it so close to probably the weakest point on the roof is beyond me.

Thanks for replying,
I will check that but unit is in shop. Did you have an issue with it ?The lights have what looks like rubber gaskets. Do they need replacing or sealant?

The rubber gaskets around the clearance lights had hardened and literally fell out in my hands. I resealed them with pro flex. The Sirius antenna is also a water entry point.

Do they sell the rubber grommet s or just the lights how do you replace them . Iím Leary of climbing on fiberglass cap and causing more leakage points .
