Heat exhaust full of water. 32 BHDS

2015 Jayco 32 BHDS, Went to use the heater last night for the first time this summer and fan would start, but heat would not ignite. Discovered water dripping from the exhaust vent. When looking in there i can see the exhaust pipe has half inch of water sitting in there.

Did not have time to dig into the problem. Will research tonight and follow up post what i find. Will take pictures too.

We bought this 2015 TT brand new from camping world in March, have been staying in it during our home remodel (which is finally almost done). Havent had any problems so far except our TV and DVD player are not hooked together.

Any wind-driven rain in the past 6 months?


When was the last time you washed the trailer with a hose or pressure washer?

I actually have never washed it, and it has been parked under cover since the day we brought it home.

Ghosts.

That's very strange. Any leaks...ever? Inside I mean?

Just doesn't make sense. Interested to find out what in the (bleep) it could be. Keep us posted and good luck.

I have not had any leaks anywhere in the trailer before, but the water in the exhaust is clean so the only options would be either of the water supply hoses, which the main water line is always hooked up and running, and the flush line is only used when needed. I hope i don't open up a huge problem in my new trailer. Thats the last thing i want!

The way the intake / exhaust is designed on the new Atwood furnaces, water will sometimes get in there, more so around the intake since the louvers are opened upward. I'm guessing you already removed screws and pulled the chrome cover off, which slides part of the exhaust out as well. Looking at the vent, it looks bass ackwards, but that's how it's designed. Once cover is removed, you'll see the rest of the story, and realize that water can't really get any further. I'm not home to take pictures of mine, but it should be the same. Not 100% sure, but I'm guessing you probably don't have an issue. If you haven't, remove the outer chrome cover and take a look. Also, remove the 4 screws on the intake grill inside and take a look around just to make sure no water is in the furnace cabinet.

Sometimes the exhaust pipes are installed upside-down (so I am told). Mine needs to be fixed as well. Although, mine doesn't gather water...it just lets it run into the camper!

Until I can get it in to get fixed, I cover it with aluminum tape to keep the water out....

The way mine's done, the water will either drain out or dry out. Doesn't get into the camper at all. Not saying it's correct, but every one I've seen, Jayco and other manf., are installed the same way. Got a picture of your upside down one? Curious if it's the same one.

I don't have a picture. A fellow X19H owner had the same issue and the tech told him it was installed incorrectly (or upside down). I am taking it to the same tech because I have had two other dealerships look at it and say they can't find anything wrong. Yet, when it rains, water gets in.

I intend to ask the tech to take pictures of the process...not sure if he will do it though.

Let us know what you find. My 2014 has sat uncovered since day one. We've had plenty of driving rain and the heat always fire right up. Had terrible rain here Thursday and camped Friday through Sunday with heat and no issues. Good luck. At least your still under warranty.
