Need an Arc!

Entire bottom of new FW full of water. Insulation soaked. cut away some of the plastic board, and you could have filled a swimming pool.

Thought I had winterized properly after the first run a few weeks ago.

Had pressure regulator in place.

Back to the dealer.

I'm bummed

If they are going to open up the belly, anything else I should have them do?

Have you determined where the water came from?

Have them install Horst holding tank probes. It will turn the useless tank gauge into a functioning one.

I had ordered a TT with a belly cover and it wasn't there when delivered.
I had the dealer install one, and they failed to cut a hole for the vent tubes, so they just dumped onto the belly cover and water seeped through between the cover and the frame. Fortunately, no major damage. I pulled the cover off and brought the vent tubes through myself, qnd reinstalled the cover. There was no way I was taking the TT back to the incompetent dealership.

Last year I had another leak where the hose that equalizes levels between the two FW tanks developed a leak. I took it to a reputable dealer for a fix, as it was now out of warranty.

I find the bellycover is a mixed blessing. It offers good protection to the wiring and it helps insulate, but it makes inspection for leaks very difficult.

Interesting....I hadn't thought about running without one.

I know it's not much help but at least you were home when it happened. Imagine if you were packed and on the road!!! All education comes with some expense. Things will improve quickly!!
Post us on where the break was!!
