    Help, does anyone have experience of water collecting in the garage section, or know of anyone having that problem??
    Spent 6 weeks in France (a lot in the rain) and each time we pitched up had to mop up too.

    Have already been back to dealer and after sealing some drain holes in the bottom sill ????
    says we should have no further problem.......hmmm.......that's what he says......:rolleyes:

    Hmmmmmmmm indeed.

    I'd be out with my hose and give it the monsoon treatment.

    Any possibility of a crack in the shower tray?
    The hose idea found why water was collecting in the boot of my car.

    Shut someone in the garage with a torch, get the hose on it and see if you can see where its coming in. :eek::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    When our last van had a leak in the garage it was the door, so we put another seal in the grove on the garage door (y) problem solved.:)

    Got them from here : http://www.sealsdirect.co.uk/
    If in doubt what one you need, phone them and they will send some samples to choose the right one. :D Bob.
