I own a 2008 Coyote 250RL and was under the impression all the roof structure was aluminum. That's a LOT of work you have to do for the repair. What caused the leak? Is there something that should be checked on a regular basis to ensure this doesn't happen? Maybe remove the AC cover and check around it?

The trusses where two sheets of plywood join were wood and the truss in the middle of these were aluminum. I question wether mine had the right seal or not under the a/c. All drains were ok but the seal was a thin rigide one 1\4 thick on one end and 3/4 thick on the front. Looking at the replacement seal it looks 1 inch thick and can be compressed. The one on mine won't compress.

Had the same problem last year. Was in some rain, was humid to boot. What happened to me was water started dripping down the front a/c's return vents, through the filters. When I investigated, there was about a cup of water just sitting in the duct work. Since the livining room a/c and the bedroom a/c (which was the culprit) are interconnected through the ducts, I was afraid of water coming out of the other vents, but thankfully there wasn't any. When I pulled the outside cover, I found some standing water but nothing to really indicate where it came from. Best guess, condensation from the humid air. Didn't do it for the rest of the trip, maybe a month or so. Did have it checked at the TrailAir facility when I was having the Level UP system installed and still couldn't see any place for leaks to enter. We will see this year...
I have a new to me 64 with some water leaks in the cab. One leak is coming from the windshield wiper and the other two appear to be coming from the roof seam. There's a channel that wraps around the top with some sort of putty in it that has separated leaving a leak spot. Does anyone know what the putty material is? I could silicone it but would rather use what's right so it'll last. Thoughts?

Sounds familliar, gonna start on our roof tomorrow. Same scenario H2o coming out the front vent of control housing. Po told us before we bought it that the area around the a c leaked after the RV business he took it to for a UV roof coating left the ac unit loose after coating. Took it back and had them fix the damage but it looks like they only did repairs to the ceiling inside the TT. And did a poor job at the ac gasket repair. We discovered the ac leaking and the roof problem with the po before we bought it and he lowered the price on it so we could have it repaired. What I am going to do as a temp fix (so we can still use it this season). Is to peel back the roof material enough to make plywood repairs and place material back in place using Eternabond tape or any thing else recommended. This is only a temp fix till I have enough time and covered space to replace the whole roof.
The area is approx 4'x3' I'll have a better idea once I have the Roof material peeled back.
Any my thoughts and or recommendations will be appreciated.
