Coachman water coming in through skylights?


Recommended Posts

Found van in store with flooring frozen solid, then when returned, all soaked through capets etc . Dealers think snow has blown through skylights ?? Anyone else heard of this ?

It is not uncommon under certain conditions that water, or snow can be blown under the rooflight and into the van as the rooflights are not a sealed unit and are an integral part of required ventilation.

We had water that we could not account for on the floor in our van. The only explanation is the extractor fan / roof light. It hasn't happened since, fingers crossed.

It's perfectly feasible that fine drifting snow could've blown under the lip of the Heki skylights. We had a similar thing happen in our house a few years ago. A day or so after we had fine, drifting snow, we had water stains on our ceilings upstairs. The snow had melted, but we'd been completely unaware of any in our attic. We now check up there if we've had a snowfall. It only happens with that fine stuff in windy conditions.
