Default Roof AC v rain entry

Hi,
I have read that if the Power Way Plateau is parked on a slope rain can enter via the ac roof unit , my drive has a slope, what is recommended to over come this potential problem as the drive is too short for me to use 2x2's to level my coach, has anyone else experienced a similar situation?
Most grateful for any advice.
Thanks

If water is getting in, then it may be time to check or replace the A/C gasket. Also, don't overtighten the bolts, as that will give leaks as well.

You might want to have someone stand in there while you use a sprinkler on your hose. That way, if there's a problem, you can address it with only a little wetness instead of finding out after it's rained for two days ...

Also, there may be a difference in water leakage (or not) depending on whether you are nose up or nose down - best to try both ways.

Thank you for your advice, I do not believe the A/C is currently leaking but I will check the gasket just incase, the question was more about need to park on a slight slope.

The coach will always need to be parked nose up due to the height and the overhang from my garage which will restrict me from backing in.
I'm in Southern California so it does not rain that often but when it does it can be quite heavy and also windy. Your idea of the garden hose with sprinkler attachment is a good one and simple to try.
Thanks

Even if you have to park it nose-up in your driveway, you might find yourself in a situation (like on a street, parking lot or campground) where you are obliged to park nose-down. I'm a belt-and-suspenders kind of gal so I'd want to know if that might be an issue in the future...

Agree with Phoebe3; knowing the potential for a leak I could have handled before it became an issue is wild. Ron
