Well, the leak did stop, but it was because that was the last rain we saw until we had been in Chimacum a few weeks. Then we got another few showers and, sure enough, the drip-drip came back. Now we weren't sure what to do, so we made an appointment to take it to an RV repair place in Sequim, about 40 minutes away. There, a guy climbed up and looked around and said the caulking job looked fine and there were no obvious cracks in the fiberglass, but he could see where water was collecting a little around the front air conditioner and there was probably a leaky gasket up there. If we left the coach with him for the day, he could replace that. So, we found ourselves with some time to kill in Sequim.

|Mussel ready for cracking|
We sat on the beach and watched as a small brownish gull, a juvenile, accompanied a bright white adult as it went through this mussel cracking routine. A mother teaching the behavior to her offspring. I certainly read it that way. Most of the birds cracked their dinners on shore rocks, but occasionally one would fly up and use the asphalt parking lot, a much easier target. I have read about crows doing this sort of thing, but have never seen seagulls do it. They're still flying rats, but not stupid rats.
It was time to go back to the shop where we were told the AC gasket looked fine. There is a pump that is supposed to get rid of condensation from the air conditioner and it was frozen up, so they fixed that just because they had it open, but that would have caused a leak from running the AC, not from rain. So as far as they were concerned they had not found the problem. We talked about bringing it back in a couple of days for another look but weren't too enthusiastic. As chance would have it, the next day it rained again and guess what?... no leak. So we didn't go back to Sequim. Since then we have been through a couple of thunder storms, including a pretty impressive one a couple of hours ago, and the interior is dry as a bone. So I guess we'll call that problem fixed for now. But we will still cross our fingers every time it rains.
