We have the Girard awning and it is side mounted not roof mounted. The rain was running behind the rail and down the side of the coach. The front storage bay was leaking from an area where there are electrical lines running through the top of the bay. The living room leak may have emanated elsewhere but it is right in line with the furnace and rear refrigerator access.


Girard PATIO awnings do not use a Awning rail to mount the box. They have 3 to 4 brackets mounted to the sidewall. Girrard SLIDE COVERS also use brackets to mount to the sidewall. Please explain if you have 3 awnings on the Pass side. 2 slide covers and a large Patio awning. Look at the picture in the link under Premium paint system Is THAT what your awnings look like? Doug

Yes. The La Mesa tech came out today and spoke with Tiffin. The approved him to put sealant along the rail to prevent leakage. Tiffin told him that they don’t do that because the awning may need to be replaced at some point.

He also sealed the furnace access door. There was moisture in that area and he has seen that area leak before. He also adjusted a drawer that was really mounted crooked and fixed our windshield wiper.

The gas problem appears to be a faulty regulator that needs to be replaced. He was going to check their existing stock before ordering one.
