    Re: Low-hanging underbelly

    I am a bit confused where the water is in your underbelly. Front of wheels, could be grey water tank issues and if it is on top and rear of tires it is fresh water. I had problems in both areas. Front area was from road water spray coming off TV tires. Rear area was from over flow lines which pulled back into frame and dumped water into under belly. Have you filled and travelled with fresh water tank filled? If not then it is not your fresh water tank.

    Re: Low-hanging underbelly

    PegMikeF, I haven't looked for my tank overflows yet.
    Murry135, the water in my underbelly was in front of the axels, and it was exactly where it was hanging down where a couple screws had broke off in front of the tires. Looks like they were that way from factory. We pulled home in a snow/rain storm so I am hoping it is rain. We literally just picked it up from the dealer a couple weeks ago and have not had it out. As far as I know the fresh water was never filled, or the grey tanks. Maybe they did at the dealership but I doubt it.
    i just need to poke a hole or two and monitor it I think. I gathered some ideas on it though so I'm glad I asked, but honestly I hadn't done much digging or monitoring yet.

    SD,
    Sounds like water infiltrated from road and tire spray. My recommendation is if you can take it to dealer to open and reseal for warranty purpose or if you want just drop a section of coroplast let it dry out and the replace and seal with black silicone caulking and if needed black expanding foam insulation. Make sure it is sealed all around front section.

    Re: Low-hanging underbelly

    Is your coroplast sealed to the frame? Mine is definitely not. Maybe the foil insulating layer is somewhere above it but my coroplast is not. Just some self-tapping screws with large washers are holding it to the bottom of the frame.
    Curious what others have?

    That's the way they are all held up TEC screws and fender washers.

    Re: Low-hanging underbelly

    After I found water from tire/road spray I had dealership reseal and add more TEC screws to make it more secure and hopefully more water tight.

    SDfromSD my coroplast is fastened the same way and is not sealed to the frame.

    Re: Low-hanging underbelly

    Thank you all for your input, glad I am not missing a bunch of sealant. I did add a couple screws to that area but will still probably put a hole or two in the coroplast for remaining water, then monitor it this weekend.

    Re: Low-hanging underbelly

    Many of us have experienced the 'water in the underbelly' syndrome. When driving in the rain the tires kick up water which will find its way in any little opening in the underbelly. It will then cause the underbelly to sag until the water is drained or evaporates. Trying the best the seal it is the best solution. The foil looking stuff above the 'coroplast' is just foil insulation. Some units have fiberglass batt type insulation above the foil. Making a drain hole in the coroplast to drain the water is the solution many of us have done.

    Re: Low-hanging underbelly

    We have 14 Silverado 35SE That has a problem with the Black Water Flush. The fitting going into the tank was cracked. If you let black tank get more than half full you have more than just water in there. Dealer ordered new tank and installed it and guess what the fitting is leaking. Not broken this time just not properly sealed when assembling it from the factory. Not a very happy camper right now. My fresh water tank has 2 over flow pipes coming out under the slides they are both red pipes coming out of the frame under the slides. I filled my blank tank up full into the toilet and let it sit for a couple hours and came back only to find the water level was not there confirming my suspitions of a leak in the tank. Hope some of this helps with you figure out your situation?
