Hello, We are on day 17 of a fabulous trip with our 19.9 Retro.   Yesterday, while traveling through torrential rain, we stopped to camp.   When we went inside, we found water everywhere on the floor from both sides of bedroom, bathroom and all way to the kitchen.  We have an area rug in front of the dinette and it was soaked.  John, my husband, believes, it is coming through the wheel wells.  We are a long way from home yet and just wondered, has this happened to anyone else? 
Thanks!

Hi Fancieladie, 

I have a 199 and have towed in rain without incident. That said, there are a number of reports of wheel wells leaking on the retros. Should be an easy fix with a caulk gun by your dealer when you return.

I bought some Herculiner and plan on painting that on the wheel wells of our 195

I pray it is still under warranty.  If you have the warranty get it to the RV Dealer asap. In the past, Riverside has responded well to water leaks.  Even before you get to the dealer, I would call Riverside to explain the issue so they can be expecting a call from the dealer.  I pray all goes well.

Hey Jim sounds like you had a great trip. The water leak a bummer. I would recommend FLEXSEAL spray. The stuff works great. Our 32 foot Jayco has always had small drip on roof of slide out. Last fall I sprayed it with Flex Seal and leak is gone. We had 10'' of rain and over 10 feet of snow last winter in the Sierras and leak is gone. Just finished spraying the wheel wells on the 150  . One coat dried for 24 hrs and applied second coat stuff works  . Good luck. GBA!!

Yes. our 177SE also got wet inside whenever we towed it down a wet highway, in the rain.  We had it in to the dealership twice and were in touch with Riverside about it.  The last 'fix' involved a complete re-sealing around the wheel wells outside.  I wish I could say it worked, but I can't - summer happened - and we haven't had the opportunity to tow it in the rain since the last 'fix'.  But, since we bought it in January, we expect to have plenty of opportunity to do so this fall, before our warranty ends.  Check your wheel-well sealing closely.  That and make sure your refrigerator vent tube is not hanging out inside the outside vent cover, otherwise your fridge will leak water into the trailer.  But, if I had to guess, based on your volume of water (like ours) it is not likely that.  Good luck. Do post when you find out the source.

the5reeds - above you mention herculiner truck bed liner for the wheel wells.  this seems like it might work well.   did you ever try this, and if so how did this work out?  

we have a 195 and have found water on floor after towing a ways in a lot of rain.  i figure the wheel area is culprit.
