Yesterday around 3 am while we were sleeping. We were awakened with the outside stereo blasting full volume and it would not turn off., I had to disconnect the power plug to turn it off. As you can see in the pictures, water leaked from the upper seal flooding the stereo and damaging the hardware. The top seal is glued on sideways and coming loose in the corners. Everyone needs to check on the seals before any heavy rain. I would also recommend frequent checks on the outside compartment seals. This will be the second time we have had to replace the stereo.

We don't have one, but I've wondered about how the outside entertainment centers are protected from the elements. Looks like the same kind of seals used on the basement hatches. I haven't had leakage on my hatches (maybe because of the drought), but I have had to re-glue the seals.

You might want to check the carpet on the inside behind the entertainment center. We ran into a guy at a rally who had the same issue and it was so bad he had removed the tv. His leak was being caused by the door at the hinge not closing flush on the top front corner but there is no adjustment.

Not 100% sure but I believe the door and frame is a Mor Ryde product. You might call them or HL service to find out the vendor and see if what they suggest.

On mine, the seals were twisted a bit and some of the glue was against the door instead of the frame, so it was pulling away. Installation error.

Please do not take this as a negative post because the entertainment compartment is a new addition to the Landmarks. Heartland has been great and offered to repair it . I point this out only for other to check them on the PDI and check them often, especially before blowing rain or before towing. Our first radio failed after a 3000 mile non stop trip. There was no sign of water intrusion and Heartland promptly replaced the radio. I have decided to remove the radio before towing.

My question also when we put our unit away for the winter the top gasket was coming loose. Going to be a spring project.

Rubber cement on both surfaces. Let it dry. Press into place.
