View Full Version : Water intrusion in front storage compartment - BH270

08-01-2018, 05:23 AM
I have a 2016 pioneer BH270 and noticed the flooring in the front storage compartment is discolored. Low and behold I have a leak. Water got in and the floor is soft. Any recommendations on how to fix? Iím going to replace the seal because it doesnít seem as tight as the other side. After that, my plan is to pull up the laminate flooring and check the extent of the damage. How do I check to see if water extends to the master bedroom? Take the nightstand apart? I donít want to screw anything up, but want to make sure I donít have mold and repair any mold or damage before it spreads. Any assistance or thoughts are greatly appreciated. Also, Iím handy, but donít always understand building terms, so pictures are appreciated too.

Hi Laurenp,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum. Sorry to hear about the water damage, but I'm sure you'll get some advice from other owners shortly.

Could your water intrusion be from the unit being towed in the rain?

Are you implying that one should not tow if it is raining?

I had this too.

Installed drip rail downspouts, but most importantly, covered each screwhead in the door frame with a blob of caulk. Water is going in around the screw head and shank.

Next rain proved the fix worked.
