Water Leak


Recommended Posts

Has anyone every have a problem with water collecting between the two rear bunk beds? Only after I purchased the trailer I found a service receipt that the previse owner brought it back to the factory to solve the problem, the service department noted that they resealed the windows. So I did bring it to a local RV center where they preformed a pressured Seal Test which shows no exterior leaks. I know it is pooling because of the angle of the camper, but because the floor is all most like a tub I can't figure where it is coming from! I will have to wait for spring and maybe try pressurizing the water system. Thanks,

When you say between the “two rear bunk beds” assume you are talking about the twin beds since bunk beds aren’t available in an Oliver.  I also assume based on your description that the water collecting is on the floor inside the trailer and not between the hulls.

What year is your trailer?  Is it under warranty still?  Have you opened a service ticket?  The service team at Oliver can help troubleshoot if they are aware that you are having a problem.  Folks here on the forum can also help troubleshoot but we need a little more information.  Start checking under the curbside bed and under the dinette to see if you can find any moisture.  Does it happen if you are hooked up to city water or when you’re using the water pump?  Any leakage outside of the trailer from the back?

Keep us posted.  Mike

Did the RV tech go up top? It most likely is seeping in from the roof, as you said the floor is a tub and it is highly unlikely that a leak from a window or plumbing joint will pool there. It could be the top of the entry door too.

I have a 2017 Legacy Elite II, The previous owner did take it back to Oliver service and all they did was re-caulk the windows. As I mentioned I went to my local RV center and had the Sealtech 430 test done which is a leak detection test. In the spring I will check the water system. Thanks,

I would look at roof penetrations, personally. And, ac connections m

Following a leak  isn't easy. But, with persistence, you will find it.

We use white duct tape to seal the obvious offender. I'd recommend carrying a short roll.
