Does anyone out there own a Jayco Expanda that has had problems with the ends leaking water in when driving in the rain? We recently took a trip across the Nullarbor and hit some fairly heavy rain and on stopping to set up camp the whole front bed area was soaking wet. GRRRRRRRRRRR thought at first perhaps we had not sealed it properly but again on another trip it has happened again.
Any ideas?
Cheers Viv

I might be worth asking the question on the Jayco forum

I Have one but have not had the same problems. No tears in the canvas? Screwed up enough? I have towed mine heaps and in rain but I cant actually remember towing in serious torrential stuff so maybe mine would leak also! Must be getting in from the top. Have you got those stupid end fly bag things hanging off it all the time? I threw mine away so maybe there is something there! Restricting air flow to disperse the water? The top is not distorted and therefore not sealing all the way along? Other than that, dunno.

Two sheets of Brickies grade plastic lining (one at each end) and a fresh tube of Silastic.
speaking from experience with an Outback Eagle but no probs.

To the reply from AJB, all of the above no we have gone through all of that stuff and we don't have those fly bags.
Thanks for the input anyway.

Hi Viv, this is exactly why we bought a Windsor Rapid, With the great design of the bed setup it is impossible for the beds to get wet. my brother has one of these jayco's in Queensland and has to use duct tape across the front to stop water coming in. he has been unsuccessful with jayco fixing the problem. but he did punt some of that foam with the sticky on one side around the inside of the ends to help seal it.
cheers shane.
