X19H Water Leak (again!)

Hi all,
When first getting my camper (less than 2 months) I initially had a leak. I originally posted here off someone else's https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...highlight=x19h

Thought the problem was fixed (even though I was unsure of their diagnosis). Well today sitting in the driveway...it leaked again. I am convinced that water is coming in through the furnace vent. The water pools right underneath the furnace inside the camper. You can't see to well in the picture, but the wood the furnace is sitting on is also wet. The dealer said it was a leak in the refrigerator vent as talked in the linked post. That may have been an issue, but it still leaks.

Have anyone here (or you know) had this sort of leak? It is now damaging the wood cabinetry and really starting to hack me off. I am of course going to call the dealer (2 hours away) but wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this. It is the stock Atwood furnace.....

That stinks! I have a 19H also and have had issues. It will be going to a dealer for water leak repairs after the season. Although mine is where the tent end attaches to the camper.
Are you in Bedford, VA? If so, who is your dealer if you don't mind me asking.

Funny you should say you have a leak on a tent end. The front tent end has a leak where the left side wire attaches to the steel bracket. At least that is where the water comes out. I haven't worried about it because the dealer is supposed to replace that tent end anyway.

I'm in Bedford Michigan....

I'm interested in hearing your resolution. I just took our "new to us" 2007 19H out for the first time during a rainy weekend and we found several wet and rotten spots. Got some work to do...

So far I just covered the vent with aluminum duct tape. I am working on something more permanent. The tent end is getting replaced so I'm not worrying about that so much.

Hello,

I have a 36 FS and had a leak in the same area. Mine was the ice maker drain gasket accessed at the panel that covers the back of the refrigerator. Hope that helps.

Well, Camping World has it now to fix the tent end. It wasn't sealed properly at the factory so that was/is an easy fix.

I explained the 'other' leak issue. They hosed it down repeatedly and even had the water spay the vent as if coming from the side. They could not duplicate any leakage. On one side, that's good. On the other, it'll still be in the back of my mind whenever it rains.

I will probably still seal the vent with the aluminum tape when not in use. It's cheap and easy to do....

The first thing I thought of was the condensate drain for the refrigerator? Open the access panel outside. There is a small dish has a small hose draining into it. The hose could be off to the side allowing any refrigerator condensate to drip down and work its way to the noticeable problem area.

Also I see you have your water pump next to the problem area. If you can reach in. Put a few pieces of toilet paper on different areas. If the paper gets wet it will change shape indicating a direction of travel. Just be careful around things like the furnace and the like so it cannot get to hot and burn.

Just because that is where the water collects does not mean that is where the leak is.. it could come in through the roof and this is the spot it drips down at.
