Rv leaking rain water from overhead exhast fan onto stove?
« on: December 04, 2017, 03:20:05 PM »
hi everyone,
It has been raining here very hard the past couple of days and it has not let up much. I now have water leaking from my exhaust van above my stove and when it rains hard it leaks pretty bad. Is there any reason for this? I looked at the outside vent right on the outer wall but not sure if I can open or close this. Its a brand new trailer so im stumped as to why its happening!  It has not done this before but it also hasnt rained like this in a while. Thank you!

For a new camper, still under warranty, make it the dealer's problem.

Is this vent a ROOF vent or a WALL vent?  Roof vent issues may be helped with a MaxxAir vent cover, but still correct the underlying issue. 
Wall vents are a whole different can of worms!  Maybe wind blowing vent open, allowing rain in??

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.

This is a wall vent and I noticed a flap with 1 screw missing on one side. Not sure if the rain is coming from the top of the vent or if the wind is blowing it in.
