Question Ralph Webber

Newbe here. Anybody had any trouble with rainwater leaks around the upper left corner of windshield on a Jayco Mebourne 2007 Ford Chassis. I have what they told me was a B model (doesn't extend out over the hood but drops down to the top of the windshield.
Does anybody know whether they cut the`top out of the chassis or do they just sit the coach on top of the cab of the truck? I'm trying to find where the water is coming in.

Nothing short of tearing out all of the headliner and interior finish will allow you to find the actual source of a leak.


The usual plan of attack is to start outside at the top and work your way down until you seal every possible place water can sneak in.


After that have the windshield removed and reinstalled.
If you are lucky, it'll only take two tries.

Welcome to the forum.

Not much help but... I had a class-B (not Jayco, however) on a Ford chassis that had a storage area above the driver & passenger seats. It appeared that the roof was intact to just behind the dome light area. But, of course, it was all covered so there was no way to be sure and it wasn't a Jayco.

If you have a dome light, you may be able to remove it and see what is forward of that area.

Jayco has been helpful with providing information regarding the construction of their trailers. They may be able to help you, too. Have your VIN# handy if you call them.

Good luck.
