I have pics too but I do not know if they apply to yours, just yet.
I have a 2001 T-2570 Solaris. The AC is model 57915.
About a month ago, my GPS took me on a detour around some construction, and through a covered bridge. Well the AC did not quite fit. The only thing I noticed, was the shroud got beaten up. I have since replaced that.
I never noticed any water in the camper in the 3 weeks since replacing the shroud, and we did have rain in that time frame. Now this weekend I noticed water.
I would have to believe, that even if rain got in the vent openings in the top shroud, that the water still should not enter the coach. That would not be very efficient planning.
I might order a universal gasket for the 14" opening just so that I have it if I need to replace it.
Am I correct in assuming that the gasket is the main, or only thing, stopping the rain from getting in?
Maybe if I take the shroud off, and pour some water in the pan, it might tell me something. It is hard from the inside to tell where the water is coming in at.
