    Just had the habitation check done on my nearly 3 year old Elddis. Found a small patch of damp on the back wall by the toilet. Honest not me and I do shut the lid. It is at the very bottom and reads just under 25%, although 2 inches higher it is 15%. The person undertaking the test believed that the seal around the bumper didn't look good and re sealed it. He made a note of this on the check. He believes that this should now dry out and not be an issue. I have a 6 year anti water ingress guarantee on the Motorhome and assume that Elddis wouldn't take any action given the small locality. I am making an assumption that if it became worse then Elddis would have to stump up the cost of repair, based on the fact that it is an approved service agent who completed the check, any ideas appreciated if I should just forget it for now

    If it is just a seal failure then resealing should work. It did on our, rather older, Burstner.

    It would be worth keeping complete documentation (and perhaps even informing Elddis) just in case of further problems.

    Just phoned Elddis, and they aren't concerned, just need to keep an eye on it and if it gets worse invoke the 6 year anti water ingress warranty

    I would be tempted to confirm that conversation in writing, just in case.

    Lets hope it's not necessary.

    So a different response every time I speak to Elddis. This time was you need to take to the local agent and get them to progress the claim through warranty. So that will be happening
