Whenever it rains or we wash our Broadway, water finds its way through the top of the hab door. Every time we open the door we get a shower and water runs down the door trim and into the footwell.

Have considered fitting a Fiamma 'drip stop', anyone used these and are they any good? Anyone else have the same problem?

We had this problem on our 2008 Nuevo ES, expect it is common to many A/S models. I fitted the 'drip stop'. It did make a difference, but I founds the ends of the 'drip stop' did come detached from the side wall after about 6 months. I think the trick is not to curve the strip too much.   

No problem on our current van, as the monocoque shells have a fibreglass drip strip built in above the door.

Thanks Hoopman, I'll see if there's anything else  we can do before we try the drip stop.

Dont have any such problem with our 2010 Broadway.
Are you sure the door is properly adjusted and mating up to the rubber trim?

The door shuts OK and seems to be aligned properly. We have to take it to Marquis in January for some other work to be done so will get them to have a look.
