Default Roof Leak Fixed and CAMCO Cyclone Vent Cover Installed (VIDEO)

Team,
Here is another video of what I learned about roof leaks, and vent covers. I know Mike (MKGuitar) favored the Psiphon 360, but I thought the Camco Cyclone would be easier to install (it was very easy...no pipe cutting); however, I must say, I think the look of the Psiphon is better. The Psiphon costs about $10-$20 more, but doesn't stand out like the Cyclone does. I've never used my Loo for the Poo, so I have never had an issue with odor, so can't really comment there, but I guess now I don't have to worry about that at all.

Enjoy the vid and hope it helps someone else see how easy this job is: https://youtu.be/gzG0g1h02nw

(SORRY THE VIDEO IS A LITTLE LONG...WORKING ON MAKING THEM SHORTER)

Cheers,
Mark

Mark, WOW awesome job! I had the same issue with mud daubbers here in AL. With that in mind I looked through out the work shop and came up with a "Hill William" (aka Hillbilly) solution... Not as professional as yours but functional non the less. 90 degree elbow, a piece of drain screen dremeled to size, black spray paint, and some caulking, viola. Sorry about the sideways pic...

I apparently have a new leak in my 2015 etrek coming down the side wall of the 1st cabinet after closet. It is leaking rain water on to the DVD player and then onto the foot area of bed. Having to put bowl down to collect water and paper towels to attempt to protect DVD player. I guess I should remove dvd player?

HOw do if figure out what to repair? I prefer to find someoane in south Florida who can help. Thanks

Not 100% familiar with your rig; however, I looked up a pic. Take a look up on your roof, there are only so many cuts on your roof (i.e. your roof vent, which is my initial guess) to see where the water may be coming in from. Then flood it with a water using a water hose and see if it recreates the issue. If it's not your vent, my second guess would be your rear window.

Good news is, they are both likely easy fixes.

Hope that helps!

Mark
