    Hi all

    We're in the Shetlands at the moment where sadly not getting this heatwave your all apparently enjoying? In fact quite the opposite with a fair bit of rain!

    The other day I noticed a few drips of water around the Fiamma air/electric vent that replaced the standard fit on our 2002 Hymer before we acquired it. It poured last night and I had to resort to a bowl beneath. The leak seems to be emanating from within the casing as opposed around the outer edge. Cannot really get up to look but removal of a few screws from below has water seeping out from within the unit moulding.

    Hopfuly, :cry: nothing is getting into the roof! Anyone had any experience of this problem?
    Short of getting up somehow I'm not sure if I should be trying to tape it or cover it temporarely.

    Any advice please?

    Dave

    I fitted one a few years ago, good as gold.

    The outside is screwed down from the top so you can unscrew the inside, drop it and have a good look around.
