Swift 184 With Waterbed Option
Ok, this morning marks the last time i sleep in a wet bed. Drove from Hamilton Ontario Canada thru to just north of Atlanta. Until we got to Chatanooga TN, the drive was DRY. There wasn't even a forecast of rain and i know this because i checked the weather networks forecast leading up to and including every hour while enroute. Ha! Clearly you can trust the weatherman just about as much as a polititions campaign promise. As we approached Chatanooga, the winds picked up and the heavens let loose a rain like i haven't seen since the last time i pulled this trailer. Before i left, we had issues with water coming in the front somewhere when in rain conditions only when driving so i consulted the highest authority i could find - this forum, and many owners suggested to caulk the seams of all the panels on the front. So thats what i did. Well, here is where the story goes south - so to speak. We pulled into the capground just outside Atlanta, leveled it out, hooked it up and guess what. I stlll have water coming in the front somewhere. I suspected the window on the front was the problem from day one, and this just reconfirms my belief. The bottom of this window is not caulked, never was, dealer say its not suppose to be and Jayco backs that up. Folks, thats a load of crap! There is effectively a large hole in the front of my trailer. If it is not sealed all the way around, then it amounts to only a smaller hole - but it a hole no matter how you slice it. So today, regardless of what others say, and after having two cups of coffee while analyzing this problem, i am going to seal the bottom of the window because i know i am right!
