We had planned on driving over to Orlando to meet with Al's cousin and his wife yesterday. However when we got up, it started raining pretty hard and it looked like we would have a stormy drive across the state.
We postponed our visit and it's a good thing we did because our leaky slide was still leaking...a lot. We keep thinking we have found the leak and have it fixed, but then the next time it rains, we still have a leak. We're now thinking the gaskets may need to be replaced. Usually when we pull in the bedroom slide, the leak stops, but not yesterday. On top of the bedroom leak, our front window by the drivers seat leaked. There is a track that has little holes for the water to run out. We keep them cleaned out, but yesterday the water in the track was coming through the screw holes that hold the window into the frame. That was a new one~ We tried to tighten the screws but that didn't help. We used some tape around the screws and hoped that would help. It slowed the leak down, but didn't stop it. After it quit raining, Al put some silicone caulk (goober) on the screws and hopefully that will solve the problem. Al got on the roof and checked out the gasket. We sprayed on some rubber seal conditioner on all the rubber and cleaned out the track. We don't know what else to do. We're going to call Lazy Days and see how soon (yeah right) they can get us in for service. It doesn't look like it's something we will be able to handle ourselves.
So today, we're again planning on driving over to Orlando and meeting with his cousin. They are on a three week bus trip from North Dakota, to Orlando, Space Coast, St Augustine, Savannah, Ga and lots of other places. They have a pretty busy schedule and a little busy for my taste, but it seems like a nice trip. They'll be ready for a vacation when they get home. Of course in North Dakota in the winter, they have lots of time to relax!
