Hey guys and gals... I'm working on a Goshen shorty shuttle bus on an E350 chassis.
So the rain stopped and I went out to diagnose my water intrusion. It is coming from the gutter area (leaking on the inside where the roof material meets the sidewalls).
I looked everything over and cant see how water is getting in where it is. There is a seam inside the gutter but there isn't any way to seal it. The gutters don't appear to be removable without causing some damage to the body or gutters. The gutters also don't appear to have a way to drain as they are capped on both ends... so they have to fill with water and run off.
I'm leaning towards cutting them down and just leaving a slight slope like drip edge... it would still keep the water from the top of the windows... and water couldn't collect in the gutters anymore.
That... or drilling holes in the gutters so they can drain quickly on both ends.
I like the ides of just deleting them... then I can seal the entire edge and make certain there wont be any leaks.
What would you do? You can kinda see the gutter in the pic below... its full length and runs into body seams which just screams "LEAK HERE" to me...
And the leak from the inside...
The roof has been triple coated in roll-on roof coating down to the gutter and the roof inside is dry. It looks to be leaking exactly where the gutter is mounted from inside.
What are your thoughts? I say trim it down and seal it off...
