Hello all! We're fairly new to the group & definitely new to Casita ownership. We just got home from buying our '07 Liberty Deluxe 17 ft. We drove about 250 miles in off & on rain. Noticed that there appeared to be a substantial water leak from the area of the stove vent fan. The vent fan door on the outside was latched & when we checked inside the door all was dry. Was wondering if any of you other Casita owners have experienced any thing like this? Cabinet above the vent hood is dry.

Someone had a leak similar to yours about six months ago. Darned if I can remember the cause. Hopefully someone will and chirp in here.

Dex posted this in another thread. Does this sound like your problem?

I couldn't find the thread he was referring to that has the 'remedy,' but you might try PMing him if you think he can help.

There aren't many places for water to get in.
Check the caulking around the vent and for missing rivets.

I also had a strange leak this summer traveling through miles and miles of violent storms in WY. I had a quilt stored under the folded down bed in my 16' SD and it was sopping, sopping wet - nothing else. I ran into a Scamp owner in TN and he stressed the point of cleaning the 'weep holes' in the windows with thin wire or pipe cleaners.

Please keep us posted!
