    New trailer leak

    Buddy of mine just took his new Imagine 2600RB out over the weekend for a shake down trip & he has a leak where water is getting into the pass thru storage compartment. We are going to take a look at it tomorrow night. Any ideas where to look first? I was thinking roof where the front cap meets, what are your thoughts?

    I had the same issue last year. I have slam locks on my 2670mk. The gasket used to seal the strike plate was not positioned properly and water sitting in this area leaked onto the floor. Quite a bit sometimes. I removed the strike plate and loaded the bottom with silicone sealant. Reinstalled and added more to the outside. No leaks.

    I had water between the subfloor and the under wrap right below the pass through. Mine turned out to be the screws along the bottom of the door frame. My screws were put in crooked. I backed them out, out some silicone in and put them back in. Also check the screws in the slam latch catch plate. As well as the gape around the slam latch catch plate.

    It could also be a leak at the universal docking station with a loose or cracked fitting on the back of the panel. Others have had this issue and maybe more likely than front cap. Do a search for soft hose leaks and you will have lots of reading. I would look there first if the water was in that area.

    @Calbar brings up a good point. It is important to identify a probable cause. You didn't mention if it was raining or snowing. I know my water issue was discovered after a strong driving rain here in Florida.

    If your friend didn't have any rain then you are most likely lookimg at a plumbing issue.

    I had the same problem on my 2019 before I got rid of it. Turned out to be the screws in the bottom of the cargo door frame not being sealed, took them all out filled holes with silicone and issue resolved. Just another reason I got rid of the turd.

    I had that problem when we bought our 2018, 2970RL. The access door was not seating properly against the gasket in a couple areas. I got out my hand held siding brake and bent the gasket area towards the door. problem solved.
