So I looked at mine for about 10 minutes today and have no idea where the water is coming from. There was not much in the latch and none dripped out.

I spoke to a dealer about this issue today. They said they've seen it plenty on the 324BHDS, but NOT the 314BDS. I asked "why?" Was told (and shown) that there's a "lip" over the Eagle Super Lite 314, but not on the Jay Flight 324.

Dealer said he's actually installed a "lip" over the outdoor kitchen door on one of the 324's he had repaired. He didn't elaborate on the install, but I'd assume there were some screws and caulking involved. This way as the water runs down the side, it's diverted by the "lip" away from the door & the seal around the door.

I picked up my trailer on Saturday morning. They had removed the handles, lubricated, and reseated the handles. They believe that was where the water was entering.

He also put silicon into the holes that were under the latch. If it leaks now, the water should stay in the door, and not drain into trailer.

As of this morning, it has started raining! I will be able to check tonight to see if there is any water in the door.

So it has been over a year, and after rain on Saturday, my door poured water out when I opened it.

Anybody else solved this problem.

My dealer became useless after they expanded to multiple brands and grew.

I don't have an outdoor kitchen but I have a question. Is it possible to make it leak while at the same time prevent that leak from entering the camper? Was thinking that water is moving down the inside edge of seal and collecting at the bottom. Could you just allow that water to keep going by making a path through the seal? And drill the door on the bottom to allow it to leak? If you can't seal it you can let it out without opening the door is my thinking here.

Dadof4,

you got lucky, my dealer became useless after i signed the dotted line, i showed up for my demo and it was down hill from there. i guess i didn't spend enough to buy the customer service part.

But to your point, my rear door is doing the same thing, holding water, rusting latch plates. still waiting for a response on that as well as many other things.

including fire damage as a result of a failed 30A-20A adapter that the dealer provided, as i handed it back to him and asked if he'd ever scene this before... "yeah, i have seen that before, and it think maybe there was a recall that came out on those.." that would have been useful information to have had a couple months ago.

Latch Bucket

Lippert Components sells a plastic latch bucket (SKU: 227105 ) that you can install into the latch hole to prevent the leaking water from migrating throughout the front sill of the slide out.

Hi dad,

I don't understand, water "was being held in the door"?

A pic is worth a lot. Can you elaborate?

Sorry. The post just before mine revived it, and I didn't notice.
