Lippert Door Weatherseal - Poor Installation
We have had two leaks/water puddling near our door. It hasn't happened every rain, but we noticed it was in a wind driven rain when the wind was blowing against the entry door. I removed the screen door and closed the main door to check the seal against the door frame. Sure enough around every hinge area there was huge gaps. Turns out the hinges were applied OVER the weatherstripping and smashed it down flat so when the door is closed there is nothing to press against the door frame and seal out wind and weather. A quick trip to Lowes and some RV/Marine/Auto weathestripping and I seal it up myself. That night a storm with strong wind/rain came thru and I checked the next morning and everything was DRY!!
You might check yours also. Open the entry door and look at where the hinges are attached to the entry door. If the hinges are smashing your seal, you might want to fix it.
This was another fine Lippert engineered product that made absolutely ZERO sense in how it was done. The words RV Engineer makes my skin crawl!!
