Hello I'm new here to the forum. I have a Northern Lite 2007 10 2 RR. I recently noticed a leak in the plumbing for the bathroom. I would like to know how to access the plumbing for the bathroom. I have looked in the basement access panel but am unable to see the pipes due to the freshwater holding tank. I would apprecicate any help to solve this leak.

Hi, All you 8' 11" Classic NL owners I need help finding out what the serial numbers are for the upper Dometic windows (the ones along the Queen bed sides). Lost the Drivers side window when I forgot to latch it down on my last trip. I have a plexiglass makeover on the other side from the previous owner I would eventually like to replace as well. The Truck Camper company in SW NH recommended seeking your help. Apparently the numbers can be found on the lower edge of the window itself. Thank you for any help you can provide! Jim, Rochester, NY.

I've fixed my NL leaks a couple of times.  Do you have any idea where the leak is coming from?  Mine was a severed connection between the Grey tank and the ABS plumbing.  In my model, I had to take apart some of the bench seat for the kitchen to get at the damaged parts.  How this showed up was a wet basement.

By any chance, do any of you all full-time in your NLs? If not, how do you think it'd work for that, if it's just one person in the camper?

The worse part is long term of build up condensation between the fiberglass shell and the insulation. In winter I found that the days were not warm or dry enough to vent what worked its way behind the fiberglass layer or shell and caused some delamination. This has been the single most damaging event since owning new in 03 in which I full timed in it during cold weather.

 

In winter two weeks or so would be okay, but perhaps a dehumidifier would help immensely depending on temps and moisture levels outside. My comfort level was much improved going home on weekends.

 

it was just too cold in the mid 20's and not very warm/ shorter days caused moisture to build. Even though vented at night and all vents opened during above freezing hours as much as poss., it even caused the jacks circuit board to go out from the moisture.
