I have a 2006 Jayco with a rubber roof. We do not have any leaks, but there are some "soft" spots on the roof. What can i do to treat the area to prevent from getting leaks? Thanks


Dear Kevin,
First, be very suspicious that the soft sports were caused by a leak and that has rotted the wood frame underneath, so it is only a matter of time until you have a bad & expensive situation.
Next, Hardware center, home center, paint stores, etc. have a roof coat.
This normally comes in 3 "flavors".
One is a black tar, spread with a broom. ( Cheaper fix)
It might need to be re-coated every few years, depending on the amount of weather & sunlight it is exposed to.,
Here in Florida, once a year.
Second, an aluminum brush on coat, most often used on mobile homes & trailers. ( Middle priced fix)
Should need refurbishing every 5 years, except for severe weather areas, and this includes too much sunshine & high temperatures.
Third, a white coat "Elastomeric Roof Coating" brush-on coat.
(Expensive. )
I use this, and it is the best, should last several years, ( 10 ?)
God bless your efforts.

2018 Cruiser RV funfinder plumbing - what are the 3 drains under the camper?


On my rv they are low point drains for emptying the lines before winterization. Blue is cold water and red is hot water. There should be valves somewhere near them. For normal operation the valves should be closed. Sounds like one is partially open or leaking.

I have a 2013 keystone cougar 327res and the belly pan is full of water...where should i look for my leak?


This is not just for your camper, but general troubleshooting.
Drain the water from the belly pan. Hook up water supply to shore water source. With water source turned on, allow some time, 1-4 hours, and check if water has returned to belly pan. If water is present then the problem is with the fresh water system. If no water, either it is a small/slow leak or the problem is not with the fresh water system. Next test the grey water tank by pouring some red food color into the shower or sink drain. Flush it into tank with water. Again, wait for some time, maybe over night, and then check for red water in the belly pan. It may take longer for the leak to appear as the grey water tank does not have pressure. If no water, check the black water tank with green food coloring and same technique. If there is colored water, red or green, in the belly pan, then the leak is with associated with the grey or black water tanks. If no water is present after these tests, then the leak may be very small and it may take days or weeks to have water re-appear. In any event, clear water is fresh water system, red water is grey water system, and green water is black water system. With any of them, checking the tanks themselves and all pipes and connectors to/from should find the leak source. The last possibility is that water is entering the belly pan from a roof or vent leak. Check to see if water returns to belly pan after a good rain. If so, the water may be clear or slightly dirty. If it is a roof leak, I have found the best repair is to use Peel and Seal roll roofing It is light weight laminated aluminum and self sticking. Cutting and applying narrow strips 4-6" wide, will seal any caulked area. It costs $95 (3' x 33') at Lowes. A 30" motor home can be completely covered with three (3) rolls, in half a day. I have re-topped 5 motor homes (one 7 years ago) and no more leaks on any of them. The product was developed to seal the roofing joints of mobile homes. Topping should last 15+ years.

When opening up for the season, noticed that wood frame on at the base of the bedroom wardrobe was damp. No visible sign of leak. Any suggestions on how to identify the problem.


Unless there is plumbing near the location of the dampness, you can be fairly confident that there is a leak. No easy way to figure out where, except through careful inspection of the outer shell and roof. You may wish to consider having a coat of elastomeric roof paint applied to the roof.

When connecting the water to the city water connection it filled my fresh water tank. Is that normal?


Probable cause would be a leaking check valve in the pump.

On the RV the city water and discharge from the fresh water pump are tied together. When on city water the discharge of the pump will have city water pressure on it. If the internal check valve on the pump is leaking, water will flow through the pump backwards and into your fresh water tank.

Find another dealer...those guys are f***tards! That slide should be level and even when in OR out. Bent slide mechanism, mal-adjusted runners maybe. Have it checked out by someone who knows what they are doing.

Water can leak in FAR from where you see the damage. It runs downhill finding a low spot to settle. I would re-caulk the whole RV, paying special attention to the roof. Spend the money on roof sealer if you have to. Silicone tube caulk is a temporary fix. To be done right, you disassemble joints/panels and use the ribbon/string caulk. More work but should last at least 5 years.

Sooner or later they ALL will spring a leak. Keeping up on inspection and re-sealing regularly will minimize the damage.

Rv leaking water under neath


The statement is extremely vague. Is it a travel trailer or a motor coach? Motor coach could be dripping condensation from ac while in use. Is it fresh water and only leaks when connected to a hydrant? Does it only leak when sewage is dumped into the black water holding tank? In short, you must determine under what condition the unit is leaking. Then narrow down where it is leaking from and then identify the failed part. RV manufacturers do not publish plumbing diagrams so it is all visual in the diagnostic process.
