I know, when we received no satisfaction from their online help and forum and then it was censored and shut down, this is exactly why went to the trouble of creating this forum for all Gulf Stream owners...so they would have a voice that hopefully, through shear mass, would resonate through to those who can make changes at the company. This is not a site created to bash Gulf Stream but rather allow people like Darby here to know that someone is listening and that they matter.

Sorry to hear its not worked out well for you Darby. Someone at your point in life that plunks down that kind of dough does not deserve this and certainly should not have to go through the hassles you have.

Good Luck on your own self repair.

Default Thanks for listening

You know what really hurts, I was a blue color worker so I never made a lot of money. We saved a little through the years after the children were raised and we felt for a 50th wedding anniversary present we would one more time buy a newer MH. It has caused so much stress in the family that I just wish I could do it all over again. I would certainly keep the 1997 Winnebago and when it broke fix it.
But we as a lot of people wanted something nicer and fell in love with the 37 ft. Gulfstream. It is so liveable. The workhorse is great. If we could just get the dam leake stopped I would stop worrying and life would go on.

Thanks to all for listening to my problems.

Default Update on water leak

Well I just got back from being out in the MH for 5 days. One night we got a pretty good rain, and once again the bedroom slide leaked in the rear corner and also I got water in the compartment in front of the door. This morning I took the hose and sprayed water on top of the compartment and opened the door and the water is coming through the top like I thought. I tried to spray some foam inon the top but I can only get my arm in the opening and I guess I didnot get it covered completely. I will try again.
I have also heard from Butch at Gulfstream Coach and it appears that they are going to install some rubber pieces in the cormers of the bedroom slide out at their expense. He feels that the water is pooling on the back corner of the slideout top and is coming in at that poing. I guess either they forgot to put these rubbers pieces in at the corners or it is a later addition. I am keeping my fingers crossed, hoping i can get these two things solved. We really like the MH but these problems has caused some worry for us.

Darby,
Glad to hear that Gulf Stream is going to do something after all. Hopefully it will be the fix you need for the leak. Good luck and keep us posted.

Default Chasing water leak

Well I think I finally found the problem causing the water leak in the bedroom slide out. We were in Eastern TN and had several days of rain and once again the bedroom slide out leaked in the rear corner. I put a pan under it and had to empty the pan several times in the night. The next day I was really hot and called LaMesa who had sold me the MH and had guaranteed me that the leak was repaired. No satisfation, so then called LaMesa customer relations in CA. Now this problem has been going on since I bought the MH in April of 2005. Well it must have made me feel better because I started looking again for the source of the leak. It was raining lightly so I ran the slide in a little and felt all along the top and it was dry. Then I got out my ladder and climbed to the top and notices water running to the outside of the slide out and then toward the back of it. I really looked closly this time and it was running under the medal corner trim and then dcown to the bottom of the slide and theminside of the slide out and dripping off between the plywood and the medal trim. I have sealed the medal trim with some clear sealer and it looks as if it has solved the problem. Now why couldn't the RV Tech find this problem, instead he replaced the seal around the slide . Once again the small things was overlooked. Well anyway if this is solved I will be very happy. You will never know how many hours I layed awake worring about this water leak. When you become a senior you don't need this . Also have got the compartment water leak stopped by spraying some foam on top of the compartment. So things are looking up.

I've read with interest your situation with the leak. Our 2006 Sun Voyager was a rental unit when we bought it last year. So we are the second owners and the warranty issue has come up, too. It surprised us, but we got GS to cover some work after a somewhat heated "discussion." Without a warranty transfer I will never buy used again. Good luck!

With a 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty, how many coaches are traded that are still under warranty?

You are right on this statement but when I bought my 2004 Sunvoyager it had been in service only 6 months. I was told by La Mesa that I would get the remainder of the factory warrenty. After finding the problmes I contacted Gulfstream and they set me straight. Thank god I bought a service policy . You would think any manufactur would stand behing their unit for at l east 12 months. I would hate to think that I owned a company that manufactured MH and I didn';t think they would last one year. Sorry bunch.

Hi Darby -

Well, like they say: Persistance often pays off.

As you probably recall, you and I have had quite a few discussions in the past when I owned the same model-coach - and had a lot of the same problems. I am so heartened to read that you are finally getting some resolution and closure on your issues. I never got that far, and finally gave up and traded mine in on another brand.

Again, congrats!
Ron
