  • Attic Vent

    We took possession of a 2022 Imagine 17MKS in July.
    Recently discovered some water dripping from around the ceiling speaker nearest the kitchen.
    Dropped that speaker and felt aft to discover moisture and wet insulation.
    Nothing obvious from a roof inspection.
    I did notice that he wet area corresponds to where the "attic vent" is located.
    I figured with our recent wind and rain, some driving rain entered the "attic vent", wetting the insulation and causing the subsequent dripping.
    How does one protect that "attic vent" from driving rain?
    I noticed there are other "attic vents" on the market with "rain guard".
    What is installed on our 17 MKE?

      First: Welcome! Please check out the Welcome Letter to New Members at https://gdrvowners.com/forum/main-fo...to-new-members

      Second: There's a link at the top of the page to the Parts Lookup website. That's where you can research various parts used on your 17MKE.

      Is it possible to take a picture of the item described as an "attic vent"? GD uses attic vents on a lot of their trailers and this is the first time I've read about water intrusion due to a rain storm via that vent.

      If not obvious, it's imperative to find the source of that water intrusion ASAP. Water will do a lot of damage in a short period of time to your new camper. Consider calling your dealer and Grand Design Customer Service (or send the latter an email) so there's a record of the problem on file.
