rear steps ( 34' no extensions) leaking?

Post by lauraj »

We have been trying to resolve the water intrusion in the rear compartments.

We have two possibles left....the inspection ports themselves could be leaking (but then the water should fill above the outside water line) OR The seal around the back step/ladder panel must be leaking. (but then why are we getting rain water in when on the hard?)

Any insight or suggestions from anyone with these type of ladder/step panels on the flat backs (34 foot) would be greatly appreciated. The project on the list for this winter when we return will be to unbolt/remove those back panels, inspect chamber to any leak source and replace the seals...Anyone else done this? Suggestions?
